Very technical question about allison transmission. Lone Tux 8-18-15  
Hello everybody,

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: 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.
