at545 transmission

i got two of these things in a package deal, but really only need one so i'm selling the other one. they will fit a variety of applications. cummins diesel, navistar/international 7.3, dt466, and various gas motors. i have an adapter ring, but honestly i'm not sure what motor they came from behind. it looks to be some sort of SAE pattern. adpater rings for other patterns are available.

these are VERY low mileage units that were used as R&D models for a street sweeper company.

asking $200obo for a transmission and adapter ring. $250obo if you want a converter and drum style output mounted e-brake assembly with it.

70? I hope to be half as ambitious as you are when I'm half your age! I know it's a bit of a thread drift, but what ever happened with the Allison swap in the Crown?

The Allison into the Crown bus

Hey you must read my posts. I guess not many trucks or buses came with a 855 Cummins and a Allison. I got a couple trans but finding the bellhousing adaptor and flexplate was a real trial. I traveled from Idaho to Los Angeles to a very large salvage yard. The main man said he had not seen a flexplate as needed in about a year. The parts I needed were about $700 and last November went to $4000. I was ready to return to my home and the salvage guy called. He found a flexplate. I raced back to LA and bought parts. I was checking fit of parts and discovered, wrong parts. After I called the salvage place, another flexplate was found. Yahoo. Back to LA. I got the correct flexplate and also bought a Allison MT653. And while paying, and moving trans, some fine person cut the cd player from the truck I was borrowing.
A new cd player was $120 as the other unit was 2 weeks old. I hope the thief
breaks a needle off in his body.
I'm needing a Allison AT545 for my Ford F350 dually. This truck has had 3 E4OD by original owner and 2 used trans by me. Most trans seem to fail at about 90-120K miles. An Allison will fit with just a few changes.
I just love making a few changes to stuff. Yep. I'm old and tired. Frank

Amen

So as long as we're drifting...what about the idea of an MT653 in a 4wd vehicle? Can some sort of a tailhousing for a t-case be found? Does such an animal even exist? I just think that even with the enormous size the strength and really low gearing in 1st combined with the ease of an automatic would make an awesome drivetrain behind say a big block Chevy. I would just be afraid that that transmission, spud shaft, and divorced t-case might get a little long even for a long bed truck.

There are many applications

With an Allison and four whel drive. Our local airport had a 4 wheel drive emergency vehicle. A airplane landed on it. The body was destroyed but the engine and trans were saved for a future use. The truck had about 23K miles. Lots of military, abulance and emergency vehicles have diesel engines , auto trans and four wheel drive. There is not a big demand for this type trans setup. Ya never realize how many of any vehicle is, untill ya own one.
The best search is with salvage yards. I'll bet there is very little demand for an four wheel drive stuff up to an Addison. The most critical parts are the flexplate and bellhousing. Frank
