This report covers the tear down and inspection of two Allison MD3066 transmissions after being evaluated using a candidate Single Common Powertrain Lubricant and a baseline commercial automatic transmission fluid ATF in a 20k mile Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Durability RAM-D test. Post test inspection of the transmissions support the use of SCPL, and yield valuable information on general compatibility of the SCPL with other medium-duty Allison transmissions fielded by the US Army. The SCPL candidate provided comparable performance to that demonstrated by the commercial ATF, and it is expected that the SCPL could be used as a drop in replacement in the Stryker transmission without negatively impacting performance or resulting component protection.
