I have a couple of questions...I have Allison 1000 6 speed transmission with the 8.1 liter Chevrolet engine on my W-22.

What is the part number for the Allison filter?

Where is the best place to buy this on-line?

How much transend fluid comes out when changing the trans filter only?

For the 8.1 liter, what is the best oil filter to use??

Thanks in advance!

Mark

If I'm not mistaken Castrol makes Transyn??? When I need to change my filter next year that's what I'll use.

Whether to buy the Allison spin on filter and have the filter installed by an Allison shop who would simply fill the filter on replacement "OR" buying a Gallon of Transynd and a filter and doing the job yourself.

I'm sure that Allison shops buy Transynd in bulk so you might want to drop by there and ask them for a quart of fluid so you can change your filter. Bring your own container.

Castrol sells Transynd by the quart. Saw it at Pep Boys.

I saw this posted somewhere? BP product name = Autran Syn 295
Cognis Corp. product name = Emgard 2805
Int'l Truck product name = Fleetrite Syn. ATF
ExxonMobil product name = Mobil Delvac Syn.ATF

It is a list of substitutes for Transynd. I just had mine change to Transynd when I had a leak fixed. The cost for the change was $350!! I think they double charged for the fixing the leak!

Sorry I didn't reply to the question in time, I was out sightseeing the Grand Canyon North Rim. Teach is right on. Most of the Auto Parts stores I've been to have the Castrol Transynd by the quart. The filters, Allison Dealer I think I paid around 7 or 8 for one. Bought two, Kept one spare.
Don't forget to save and replace the round Magnet between filter and Transmission.
Have fun!

I bought a quart of Mobile 1 synthetic transmission fluid, Dextron III capability. Will this work refilling my trans. filter?

To be honest with you, I don't know. I only know that Castrol makes transynd. That said, maybe someone on the site can answer your question...
