Drain, Level Check and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Locations
PML located the drain plug on the driver's side of the pan. On the side of the pan, the drain plug is less likely to get damaged.
The level check hole is on the passenger's side, in the same location as the stock hole. This hole can also be used to fill.
PML designed the pan with two locations that can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit if needed. One location is on the passenger's side and one location is on the driver's side. The machining charge for PML to drill and tap the pan is $45 .

PML cork composite gasket for our AB60E, AB60F transmission pan
This PML transmission pan works with the stock filter, available from a Toyota dealer or an auto parts store.
Baffles on the inside of the pan help reduce sloshing and aid in heat dissipation. They also direct the flow of the fluid toward the pick up on the filter.
PML includes a cork gasket, of our own design, for this transmission pan. Some folks prefer to use silicon "gasket maker" which also will make a great seal. The factory stock gasket will not work with the PML AB60 transmission pan. Additional cork gaskets are available for purchase from PML.

Supplies for Installation PML Pan
2008 Toyota Tundra 5.7L Crew Max 4x4 AB60F
Steve installed this PML transmission oil pan on his 2008 Tundra. When he was removing the stock pan, four stock bolts snapped during removal and he had to drill them out. Other than that install was great and simple. He used the PML cork gaskets for this installation. His transmission fluid temperatures dropped about 4 degrees Celsius at maximum running temperature, which is "awesome". Pan sits right flush with the frame and took the estimated 3 1/4 quarts.
2013 Land Cruiser 5.7 4WD
This 2013 Land Cruiser removed the skid plate for the PML extra capacity transmission pan. The customer decided on Toyota Orange RTV instead of a gasket.

Land Cruiser Series 79 (Australia)
The images below show this pan installed on an Australian Land Cruiser Series 79. In one corner the pan is very close to the drive shaft but there is not contact. Photo was taken with the rear cross member removed.

Land Cruiser Series 200 (Australia)
On Australian Land Cruiser Series 200, the skid plate interferes with the PML pan. The pan fits on the transmission but the skid plate does not provide enough clearance for the larger PML pan. In the pictures shown below, a customer tries adding spacers to the lower the skid plate for more clearance. More space was still needed so this customer was going to look into a custom skid plate.
