I am the new owner of an 1995 Allegro Bus with 12 valve Cummins and Allison MD3060 transmission. I researched for hours fluid information and filter replacement procedure. I already have the Transynd fluid and went today to Stewart and Stevenson to buy the filters. To my surprise the parts girl shows three filters...the regular filters
Allison Filter Kit 29548987
and another filter called a suction filter
29544785-DF - FILTERS & FILTER KITS
It looks like the lower part of the transmission must be disassembled to access this suction filter. Research has been unsuccessful other than finding places that sell the filter.
Is anyone familiar with this filter and the procedure to replace it? I don't like the idea of running on a 21 year old filter. Thanks in advance.
