For over 30 years our specialty has been restoration of Allison transmission hard parts. Our founder, Jack Bailey, combined his skills as a machinist with his experience as a manager of an Allison transmission rebuilding department to create Trans Machine, a unique company with an understanding of Allison transmissions as well as machining processes required to restore their components to original specifications.
We stock commonly failing components in a completely remanufactured state. This means we have thoroughly inspected each core, cleaned them to like new appearance, and restored worn or damaged areas to original dimensions and material specifications.
A number of Allison Service Bulletins provide technical information on how to update a particular component to avoid a potential failure. We perform many of these authorized updates on a regular basis and assure compliance with all new specifications.
Because we perform Allison authorized updates on a regular basis, our processes are proven and refined, meaning your cost will likely be less than sending the part to a local machine shop along with instructions. You can also be confident that Trans Machine will complete the update correctly the first time, and every time. Some updated components are stocked on our shelves ready to ship to customers with a serviceable core to return.
Example: SIL 8WT-99 double weld update on HD and MD rotating clutch hubs.
Significant value can be added to older parts by converting them to newwe part numbers for use in models currently in demand.
A variety of housings and internal components from older Allison models can be converted into a later model part number by making one or more modifications to the part. Trans Machine has identified these opportunities and developed specialized processes to perform these conversions.
Convert an older style main housing to part number 29537423 by adding a speed sensor provision.
Older converter housings can be updated for current applications through one or more of the following modifications:
- Add a speed sensor provision
- Open the lower PTO access
- Increase clearance to accept newer accessory drive gears
- Convert pipe threads to port style thread
When expensive components sustain unique damage, a custom restoration may be possible and at least worth considering. Our years of experience with heavy-duty transmissions and drop box components permits quick assessment and quality restoration.
*Note: Our expertise is not limited to Allison products. You’ll find that we are equally familiar with most top brands of equipment including John Deere, CAT, Terex, ZF, Clark and many others. Give one of our specialists a call about any of your repair/remanufacturing issues.
