Have a complete worm drive rear end assembly that has been sitting in one of our farm barns since my father put it there.
All original. How can I tell what year and model it was under. I have pictures
Post some pictures and the folks here usually will be able to tell you. The Model T Ton truck also called TT used a worm gear rear axle starting in late 1917 and with modifications was continued into the 1927 year. So "if" it is a T rear axle it is 1917-1927 year. And it will function on any TT truck but might not have been original on some of those years.
Note the 1928 Model A Fords also used a worm drive rear axle -- but it had bolt on wire wheels instead of the wood spoke wheels used on the Model T and it had rear wheel brakes and probably some other differences.

We will give you a senior moment. All model Ts and As have rear wheel brakes. Model As have front wheel brakes too.
I would think people are interested in the gear ratio?? Bud.
Has wood spoke wheels
TT rear axle:
Strictly speaking, the Model T does not have
"Rear Wheel Brakes" but has parking brake drums for use when the vehicle is stationary. The service brake, which slows the rear wheels, was the drum on the transmission. The wheel drums were not really intended to stop the car, just keep it from moving.
Thomas, The "Rear Wheel Brakes" on my TT will slide both rear wheels with ease. They have plenty of shoe and lining. And I need to go look to be sure but I think they can be used with the drum brake. And I can pull on the hand brake lever and get great stopping power. Big drums and wide shoes. Scott
Thanks, that's what it looks like. I have some pics, but haven't figured out how to post them on here yet. I think I would like to sell it to someone who would make good use of it, instead of just collecting dust.
