    Level Check Options

    PML provides a level check stand off pipe when needed for the application. We know of at least 6 different OEM pans for the 8L90 transmission. The level check stand off pipes have various heights above the flange. To provide the correct pipe, PML needs to know the OEM pan part number.

    There are 4 different heights we know of:

    GM 8L90 stock pans standoff pipes 8L90 trans pans stand off pipes  Heights are the distance above the flange. Measurements are approximate.

    Here are the heights based on the OEM pans we have seen for these OEM part numbers:

    • 24045035 (24278774 is alternate):   0.0 inches (so no pipe needed)
    • 24278775:   0.0 inches (so no pipe needed)
    • 24274614:   0.24 inches
    • 24274616:   0.9 inches
    • 24298834:   0.9 inches
    • 24274615:   1.05 inches

    The OEM pan part number is on a label on the pan. If you cannot read the label, ask a local parts department for the part number based on your VIN. You can also remove the OEM pan and measure the distance from the flange to the top of the level check stand off pipe.

    Maintaining a correct fluid level is important to the operation of the transmission so verify the fluid level check procedure of any aftermarket pan to avoid over or under filling transmission.

    Drain, Level Check, and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining

    The length of the level check stand off pipe varies with the application. PML supplies one based on the OEM pan.

    Optionally, this pan can be drilled and tapped for an aftermarket temperature sending unit. The location is on the passenger side. If you want PML to machine this hole, there is a machining charge and the standard size is for a 1/8 NPT.

    Example 8L90 Transmission and OEM Stock Pans

    There are at least 6 different OEM stock transmission pans. The bolt hole pattern is the same for all of them. The shape of the pans vary and the standoff pipes for the level check are different.

    PML Transmission Pan Compared to Stock

    Always check your vehicle for clearance for a larger transmisssion pan before ordering. If the frame or an exhause pipe run under the stock pan, measure from the transmission housing flange down to see if PML pan will fit.

    This PML pan is deeper than stock pans by about 1.5 inches at the deepest points and at the rear the PML pan is deeper by 3/8 to 1 inch, depending on OEM pan in the vehicle.

    There are many different stock pans. The one we have seen all have a maximum depth of about 2.4 inches.

    At the rear where the PML pan does not have fins, it is 2.7 inches deep. This allows for clearance for exhaust cross over pipes or the frame which run under the rear of the pan on some vehicles.
