|Very technical question about allison transmission.||Lone Tux||8-18-15|
I own a 2002 Winnebago Chieftain motorhome built around Workorse Custom Chassis.
The chassis uses Allison 1000 transmission.
My question is about the transmission: Do any of you have the information whether the wet clutches that the transmission have metal-to-metal friction surfaces or metal-to-other-surface ?
Maybe some of you had disassembled such transmission or has seen somebody disassembling it ?
A Google Images search (like this: http://i.imgur.com/agyT30s.jpg) shows that the friction surfaces are not fullmetal, but I need to be 100% sure.
The reason I need this info is I will be using a kind of "chemical ceramic metal structure enhancer" in my transmission, which could damage the clutches if they are full-metal.
I will not say the name of the chemical as this is not an advertisement.
