Help! Who can help me with a Allison workplace-manual?
Ive a 32 years old coach with a Allison automatic transmission ( 4 gears + Rev)?

the technical identification is:
Serial Nr.: 910.802.3315
Part Nr.: 230.429.60
Ref.Nr.: 321.026.7780
Model Nr.: AT 545 RM

Also my question is: where is the switch of the REV-Lights
and can I adjust the gear-changing, because now the gearbox changed very uneconomical by 2500 RPm (CAT-Diesel-Pusher) and 47 m/h (75 km/h) and to early back if the coach is slowing down. The engine is running to fast and dosnt works as usual by Diesel engines on torque. So I like to slow down the RPM down to +/- 2350 RPMs
So who can help me? Please forgive me my badly english Im a German in Holland/Europe
Please be invited to use my e-mail address for help: renatoknaack@gmail.com
Thank you

Reverse Light and Neutral Start switches are on the gear selector in the cab, not on the gearbox.
Transmission is listed as a 2800rpm model. To adjust the shift points you would need to take it to a transmission shop that has a valve body test bench. They will be able to adjust the governor if necessary.

Renato, sorry can't help with dash wiring.
You will need to check if there is 12V at the switch. If no 12V then check fuses.
