This was under an AA frame that had been cut down to make a doodlebug. $50 picked up in Fortville IN 46040
That's an AA rearend not a TT. Looks similar but it's definitely an AA piece. - Matt
Kinda scarce,as they didn't use it long.
AA Housings are different, splines are different on the worm gear and the bronze driven gear is .200” wider than on the TT’s but many other parts are interchangeable. There might be some good stuff in there for the price!
On the AA truck, one of the housings should be marked with an A or B to indicate high or low gears. If the bronze gear is in excellent shape, it can be re-machined to work in the TT. The steel worm would need an adapter made and probably not cost-effective to use in a TT.
I would like to get it. PM sent Rich Kemp
Adam, are these casting marks the A or B that indicates high or low gear? The TT casting is why I assumed it was for a TT truck. Anything you guys can tell me about what I have would be appreciated. If this is truly for an AA I might want to keep it.
Looks like one of the early AA rears to me. The back cover of the worm gear can be removed then pull out the bearing and you can count the starts on the end of the worm the 7.25:1 have 4 starts 6 for the 5.16:1 if I recall correctly.
This has all the info:
Thank-you all for the information
The pumpkin looks like the standard TT worm housing. Maybe better pictures will show the added oil return galley in the casting that the AA's got.
Also this might be a combination of parts.
FYI I have have bad luck with rear ends for Doodlebugs owing to the hard life they were subjected to.
