Is it difficult to change the fluid and filters on my Allison 3060 transmission? Any tips?

After 25,000 miles its time for my second Transcend oil change to make it 100% Transcend.

Not difficult. The only "special tool" you will need is an inch-lb torque wrench.

The filter pack from Allison comes with excellent directions and torque specs. It will probably come with more gasket choices than you need-- just use the old ones to decide which ones YOU should use.

Start by really cleaning the bottom of the transmission-- cleanliness is paramount.

Brett,
Has something changed recently?
My copy of Allison's 1099 says that the filter cover bolts should be torqued
to 38-45 lbft.

Don't have my Allison manual here right now, but that sounds correct-- again, it will be on the installation instructions in the filter pack.

My Snap-ON 1/2" ft-lb torque wrench doesn't go below 50 ft-lbs, so I use my 3/8" inch-lb wrench. Clearly, if you have a ft-lb torque wrench that accurately reads in the 38-45 ft-lb range that's fine.
