Mike,

Thank you very much for the great info. It was in regards to a tranny that has been sitting a while and was a little low on fluid. We did not want to run the vehicle without topping the fluid off. The dip stick did not say what type of fluid it took.

What is you opinion on the durability of the MT-40? Anything I should look for in a road test other than transmission retarder/temp issues, a burnt smell to fluid, or erratic shifting or slipping? Are all the parts available to do a full rebuild still?

I have never driven a bus with this transmission, can I expect hard shifting as normal? I remember ridding in an automatic equiped school bus as a kid, and you sure did know when it decided to shift.
