      2. All internally lubricated parts
      3. Extension and tail housings
      4. Transmission pan
      5. Torque Converters (AT)
    6. Inspect the transmission for cracks in the case/housing, damage to the pan, and any cut wiring or damaged sensors/external parts
      1. If damage is found, contact supervisor or salesperson before continuing
    7. Move the shift selector through all the detents to make sure shifting is smooth
    8. When possible, remove the pan to completely drain all oil, and proceed with the following defect checks:
      1. No more than ¼ teaspoon of metal shavings
      2. No more than ½ teaspoon of friction plate material
      3. No shaving larger than a grain of rice
      4. No distinct “Burnt” smell
    9. If ANY of the above issues are discovered, contact supervisor or salesperson before continuing
      1. NOTICE - Any mechanical component not drained could subject the part to refusal on behalf of transportation company(s)
    10. Following inspection clean the pan and reseal

2. Prepare

    1. Remove any of the following (after having been approved for sale):
      1. Unnecessary hoses, wiring, or brackets
      2. Broken sensors
      3. Any other loose, broken, or damaged external parts
    2. Use properly sized red plugs to cover any critical openings (including accessory items). Use adhesive tape where plugs don’t fit. 
    3. Ensure torque converter is set in trans and secured with a properly fit bracket

3. Clean

    1. Pressure-wash the entire unit to remove any oil or grease. Team PRP recommends using a hot pressure washer, commercial degreaser or non-heated pressure washer or a combination of these to properly wash the transmission
    2. Use an air hose with air chuck or an air hose with a blow gun equipped with a rubber tip to remove excess moisture.
    3. Complete a final check for cracks or breaks that might have gone unnoticed prior to cleaning

4. Tagging and Identification

    1. Ensure the correct stock number is visible on the torque converter and the transmission
      1. Write “O/I” on case to denote completed inspection when applicable
    2. Apply your store’s custom stamp on the housing where appropriate
    3. Use wire or zip tie to secure the Team Team PRP installation, Drain Warning & warranty tags

5. Shipping

    1. Use one of the following standard pallets:
      1. Small Transmission - 24x32
      2. Medium Transmission - 26x40
      3. Large Standard Engine / Transmission - 30x20 
    2. If the transmission is oversized or uncommon in shape, pallet reinforcement / alteration is recommended to ensure stabilization during transportation
    3. Use no fewer than two banding straps to secure the unit
      1. Ensure straps are not tightened over critical fragile exterior components like plugs or sensors that may break when pressure is applied
