I think I scored!

I found an Allison AT1545P that was used for the M35A3 trucks. It has lockup and is mechanical. I think it will be an easier swap than the MT647 that I bought from another member here. It should pop right in without driveshaft shortening...I HOPE.

Good score! I've never seen one, is it any different externally that you could tell?

As far as I can tell, the dimensions are the same. I won't have it in my hands for a couple of weeks.

Wow, that's it. I thought I would get much more feedback. These transmissions are more rare then hens teeth.

Probably because the general consensus on here is that AT series Allison transmissions are complete junk . That's fine by me as far as I care, it just makes finding one if and when I need it that much more easier . Though I doubt I'll ever have to......

What did that puppy come out of? Online I read they were used in the 2.5 ton military trucks but all the ones I've ever come across had a spicer manual. Take some pics when you get it if you could because I'm curious if it has any extra lines or anything for the clutch. Or maybe something that would make one more easily identifiable.

Since I haven't been following...the 35A3 series deuces are 35/A1/A2 series trucks that had undergone a service life extension- new engines, new automatic trannies, some got central tire inflation.

I think what happened was the deuces were being rebuilt buy a contractor in the nineties. They were getting Cat 3116 engines, auto transmissions(AT 1545) because most people can't drive manuals and new axles with super singles. Now all the deuces have been sold, so occasionally parts come up. I found mine.
