I won a transmission!

I'm in a great mood right now! I just snagged my Allison MD3060 transmission for $510. The seller said it's in near perfect condition with low miles, but I'm not sure how much I believe it. I guess I'm just a gambling man.

I checked and if it's from a business to business address then it's less than $300 or so. From business to residential, around $350-$400. Residential to residential? Forget about it. I think I'm going to be able to get a business to business.. if not, I'll have to go with business to residential.. which isn't too bad.

I hope you are getting the puter and shifter pad with it or look at spending a few more $$$.

It says complete... so I'm just hoping it is. I couldn't pass it up for 500 dollars.

I hope it comes with everything. Not trying to be difficult. I just don't want you to get burned. Also, your profile says Cummins 8.3. That's a 6ct not a 6bt. A 6bt is a 5.9.

What transmission do you have now?

Ya, let's hope. The harness and shifter can easily cost several times that price. Keep us up on how it goes. Good luck bud.

And, BTW...Allison does not make or sell any of the shifters that go with their trannies. They are all speced by whatever the chassis builder call for. And it may be the same for the harness.
