Identifying Transmission Model?

I'm thinking about buying a 1997 - 72 passenger International-Genesis with a mechanical DT466, but I can't for the life of me find the model of the tranny to confirm it's a MT643 or newer? I crawled under and looked on the passenger side for the metal tag and no luck. I called the mechanic at the bus shop, and he said he believes it was a 3000 series Allison. I can't help but doubt that on a 1997? Any ideas?

FWIW, our 545 has a temp sender on the pan but it sits higher.

The 3000 series Alison transmissions are the best of the available transmissions in school buses. Most common variant is the MD 3060 double over drive, 6 speed automatic transmission.

If it has a electronic shift panel, it's got a 3000 series or better transmission.

Not all 3000 series transmissions have the electronic shift panel, but most will.

This is what you want to see.
