If the transmission is defaulted to 4TH gear and reverse and goes into gear harder than normal,along with no speedometer signal.These are all signs of power or ground problem. The transmission TCM should be mounted to the drivers side radiator shroud. We need to check the following pins on the gray connector. Pin 3 must have full time 12 volt power. Pins 1 and 5 must have good continuity to battery ground. Pins 2 and 4 should have 12 volts with the ignition in the run position. By re flashing the Allison TCM you ruled out a bad TCM they would have had problems flashing it.

Needs a clutch. Not cheap your gonna have to pull the transmission the clutch pack is reasonable 150.00 to 225.00 its the labor that is expensive. Don't recommend doing it yourself unless you are up to the task and have the ability and the tools,some special alignment clutch tools. ASE master certified mechanic.

I need to know where the bleeding screw for brakes on jcb214e backhoe

most of those type of equipment have inboard brakes in the axle tubes of the rear gear assembly i.e. follow your brake lines from the master cylinder to the rear axle assembly,the lines usually go in and to a caliper and another line comes out to a bleeder tip nipple ,some models are actually inside the axle tubes them selves requiring disassembly of the wheels ,axle tubes etc. until you get to the inboard rotors and calipers ,major work for such a minute ordeal this is done to keep the system protected believe it or not,i would obtain yourself a model repair manual if i were you or you could also go to jcb and ask them for a photo copy of the entire brake hydraulic system
