It's time to ask some more dumb questions. I have a chance to purchase a "Rocky Mountian" transmission for my TT. Does anyone know anything about them. I would like to get some info before I consider this purchase. I was told that they are a two speed trans that bolts to the rear axle. I was also told that depending how the gears are installed they can be either overdrive or under drive. I cant seem to find any info on the trans. Is it at all possible to find parts if they are needed? Any help in this matter would be great.
Hey Mark, here are some threads with info on the Rocky Mountain trans - looks like a good one to me, especially if the price is right.
Mark, there is an installation instruction on e-bay right now. Only 23 hours left.http://www.ebay.com/itm/181259958511?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m142 3.l2649
Mark, I have a TT truck with the under-direct-over Rocky Mt. transmission. It also has the two speed Ruckstel. Before I added the Rocky the truck had a lot of vibration at 23-24 mph. The Rocky cured the vibration and it also gave the truck more speed. I like mine. I have a TT with a universal tranny and a TT with a Warford and a Ruckstel. The Rocky is my favorite.
Michael you have 3 TTs all with accessory transmissions?!? Good grief some of you guys with more Ts than you can dive need to share!! Lol
The Ruckstel is a must have for me if the TT doesn't have aux trans. I will put a Ruckstel with the Universal tranny someday. I must get aux brakes on them. Plan on doing that this winter! I don't trust any one else to drive them the way they are. I had a spooky ride down the hill in one last summer when it went to neutral. I've used up my luck over the years. It's time to fit Rocky brakes.
You say that it is a two speed. Or is it a 3 speed? Does it include a shift lever assembly? The lever assembly is essential as it contains the detents for selecting the gears. Post a photo if you can.
Made by the same company that made Rocky Mountain Brakes, right here in L.A.
