The mt643 and at545 mate to different bell housings (SAE #2 for 643), so you'd need to find that to. at545 is 4 speed, so is mt643 (that's what the "4" stands for.) mt643 does not have overdrive.

643 has a lockup. No overdrive.

If that's possible a lot of people would want to know how to do it. Not that I know, but I don't think it's possible. The 643 would still be a beefier transmission.

Re: 643 allison trans

Just some info...The at545 IS a 4 speed.
545and 643 are 2 differant animals.
the 545 uses a #3 flywheel housing, the 643 uses a #2, If you have an adapter ring between the flywheel housing and trans you already have a #2.
Depending on how big your bus is the 545 will do you just fine.
I have a MT643 that came from behind a cat 3208 that I,m selling. if interested , email me direct...epp@wavecable.com.
I,m in Port Angeles , wa
