Please check carefully for fit and interference. Vehicle configurations vary.
2006 and 2007 H1 Hummer may have an Allison transmission but lack space for a larger transmission pan.
2006 Silverado 2500HD
The Transmission Guy in Palmer, AK, 907-982-0077, put one of his performance transmissions with a PML pan in this 2006 2500HD Chevy Duramax truck.
2005 Silverado 2500HD
This is the new PML shop truck, a 2005 Duramax LS 2WD Long Bed. As soon as we got the truck, we installed our Allison transmission pan and 14 bolt rear differential cover. Installation by Torrance Transmission. Click on an image to view a larger one in a new tab or window.

John Brown installed our Allison transmission pan on his 2004 Chevy Silverado, 2500HD Duramax. He selected the black powder coat finish. Our thanks to John for sending us the images.
Sun Coast Converters
This image shows the PML transmission pan on a transmission built by Sun Coast Converters. The pan is cut-away so the picture shows the filter supports holding the filter. The filter is the shallow stock filter so the filter supports are at full height.
The only gasket we know about for the Allison is the reusable gasket. A flexible, thin cork or cork composite gasket works best with PML pans. With the hard reusable gasket, make sure that it is clean and free of nicks or there will be a leak. You may need to file down the gasket bolt holes so the bolts do not bind and the pan seals correctly.
Some installations have used a very thin bead of silicon (RTV) instead of the gasket.
Installer must verify transmission, filter, gasket and fitment based on the individual vehicle. This information provided for reference only.
PML Pan Drain and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining
Click on image to view larger.
The drain for this pan is on the front side of the pan for easy access. A magnetic drain plug and all mounting bolts are included with the pan.
The pan has a boss on the inside of the casting that can be machined for a temperature sensor. This is also located on the front edge.
If you would like PML to drill and tap a boss, the machining charge is per hole.
The standard size is 1/8 NPT. If another size is needed, please call or email.
Filters and Filter Supports
The transmission pan features filter supports that are an integral part of the floor.
Out of the box the filter supports are set up to work with filter part number 29542833. This filter works with the PML transmission pan on all years of the Allison transmission (2001 to 2015). We have also heard that filter part number 29537965 works best on some years, such as the 2005 Allison transmissions.

Our thanks to Revmax Torque Converters for the pictures and assistance.
Other filters are available. Make sure the filter sits correctly on the filter supports such that the filter will not fall out of the transmission nor will it get shoved up into valve body causing damage.
The PML pan is a deep pan but it is NOT designed to work with what is called "the Allison deep filter".
Information about filters for reference only. Installer should verify transmission, filter, and fitment based on the individual vehicle.
