ISSUE:

A new design transmission case and extension housing has been released. The new design has improved lubrication distribution.

ACTION:

Refer to the following text for case and extension housing information and new part numbers.

The new design case has a plastic lubrication plug in the rear of the case (Figure 1). The new design extension housing has a cast-in shoulder boss (Figure 2) that keeps the lubrication plug in place. The new extension housing must be used with cases that have the lubrication plug.


Figure 1 – Article 97-23-13




Figure 2 – Article 97-23-13

NOTE:DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION HOUSING WITHOUT THE CAST-IN SHOULDER OR BOSS ON ANY CASE HAVING THE LUBRICATION PLUG AS TRANSMISSION DAMAGE MAY RESULT.

The new design extension housing with the cast-in shoulder or boss will service any E4OD case (past or present). The previous design extension housing without the cast-in shoulder or boss (Figure 2) can only be used on transmission cases built prior to 7/24/97 not having the lubrication plug.

CAUTION:BE SURE TO USE ONLY THE NEW DESIGN EXTENSION HOUSING WITH THE TRANSMISSION CASES CONTAINING THE LUBRICATION PLUG.
