How much fluid?

What is the capacity of an MD3060 transmission? Typically how fluid is drained when a service is performed?

The total capacity of the transmission varies but the average is 19 quarts, I learned a trick that reduces the loss of Transynd when replacing both transmission filters. If you do as many others and remove both filters at once, you lose a significantly greater amount of trans fluid than if you replaced one at a time. Just before summer, I did just that and my total loss of Transynd fluid was just a bit under 1/2 gallon.

Synthetic transmission fluid that meets Allison TES 295, Allison TES 389.
You'll also need to know oil pan depth, it's either 2" or 4" to change filters.
Most are 4" and use filter set Allison # 29558329
