Got my second two gallons of tes 295 from Oreilly this am. Two gallons of Transynd are on their way, too.
Gona order a pan gasket, internal filter, and another spin on with magnet today.

Will be heading to the tag office in a bit to get it titled and registered.
After that I'm off to remove the decals and reflective tape from the driver side of the bus.

that fluid looks pretty yucky.. good thing you are changing it. the worst usually comes out of the bottom of the pan and out of the spin-on filter. as long as it doesnt smell burnt then you still likely have lots of trans life left.

Didn't smell burnt.
I'll pour and dump a couple times till its brand new fluid throughout. Its worth the few hundred bucks in fluids and filters to do this right, imo.
The oil that came out was ugly too.
Its purring nicely with Rotella and some HotShot's diesel oil additive stuff.


GOT MY TAG AND TITLE!!!!!

I'm legal now!

Chris- if I wanted to buy the stuff to be able to access the computer like you have, what do I need to buy?

Navistar gives away the Service-Maxx J1708 software. you can downlooad it here.

https://www.navistarservicesoftware....p/servicemaxx/


im using a Nexiq USB-Link 2. interface tool.. there are supposedly cheaper knockoffs that will work just as good.. im thinking someone here has tried one and it worked..

the software runs on any windows machine. ive run it on XP, 7, and 10. without issues.

you should get one that has both the 6 pin and 9 pin round connectors.. (the real nexiq comes that way).. my bus has the 6 pin, I plugged into a newer 466E that has the 6 pin, Kubla's 444E (same as mine) has the 9 pin, haz. matt's 444E (older than mine) has the 9 pin.. so its a hodge podge of what navistar put on.. the 9 pin is supposedly the newer connector...

well darn it, that sure is a bit pricey. I'll see what I can find.

Ordered another spin on filter for the allison, with the magnet as mine was missing.
And also a spare oil filter. The thing is MASSIVE. Looks like it holds at least a half a gallon!

I've seen the 466's several ways, iirc. One slim long filter, two slim long filters, and this one with one huge jug-like filter. Bigger is better!
The filter Napa gave me was for an older 466 like RYO, so I just used the part number off the one on the bus and ordered it.

Just ordered a genuine Allison pan filter and gasket, an extra spin on filter, the Merchant Automotive filter lock, and more Transynd. If this tranny ever dies it won't be due to lack of maintenance by ME!

Trying to bide my time with fluids, maintenance, and body prep until someone who is good at electricity can give me a hand!
