Subject: I have the service manual

If you send me your email address, I will send a PDF of the manual your way Mine is dutchessc22@aimcom

There's a drain plug - under the shift lever - it should also be the holder of a tubular strainer, which supposedly comes out along with the plug. The procedure says to remove the filler plug and to loosen one of the cooler lines when draining the oil - presumably so it drains as well - recommended to be done seasonally. The recommended replacement fluids are DextronII, Type F and "other transmission fluids meeting Allison Type C3 specifications" - however, regular motor oil is also specifically identified as allowed for our speed/use (not exceeding 3000 rpms; SEA #30 would be preferred - no multi-grade oils allowed).

It takes two quarts, not including the cooler and lines.

How does the oil look?
I was just going to use the oil change pump and take it out of the dip stick. Have not done that yet.
I use any ATF fluid, that's what the mechanic who rebuilt the Perkins told me. Also that in an emergency, any oil will work to get you in.
