I'm looking for the following Moore aux. trans. parts for a T (not TT which was different).

If you have any of the parts pictured but in better condition than the ones you see, please send me a PM (Private Message), do not reply here. Thanks.

All the round parts look like pretty simple parts to reproduce to me. Have you looked into making new ones yet? Seems like a couple lengths of prehardened chromolly rod, a bit of lathe time, and a guy with an EDM machine could make everything but the shift fork pretty easily.

The shift fork could possibly be brazed up using a TIG welder and silicon bronze filler rod. This would provide a decent wear surface without compromising the heat treat too bad.

Either way... Good luck!

Thanks for your comments Kevin. I'm waiting to see how one last lead pans out, but it looks like I probably will end up doing what you suggest. Trying to keep the cost down as in the end if the total cost nears the price of a all new Ruckstell or KC then it's a no-brainer which is the better way to go.

Constantine, when I rebuilt the Moore in my roadster buckboard I had three layshafts machined, case hardened and centreless ground. The largest expense was the grinding. The output shaft would also be a relatively simple machining job other than cutting the keyway. it could be hardened at the same time as the layshaft.

The 'teeth' on the sliding engagement dog are huge.I would have no concerns using that dog as is. The bruising on engagement is bound to happen on a new dog also. If you have the original shifter mechanism with its positive engagement lock-in at the quadrant, it cannot jump out of gear, even if there is a little ramping on the dog teeth.

For what it's worth.
