Ruckstell Shifter
I have ordered the "Ruckstell Rear End Repairing and Restoring book" but I haven't given adequate time to received it yet but I can't just leave things alone and I am not sure it will address this subject. But just a couple questions and then any more advice you have to offer. Most of you know I am new to all this T stuff and just on my first journey....

1. Am I suppose to pack all of this in axle grease? OK if not you can laugh!!!! I haven't yet...

2. How do you know how much adjustment or pressure to put on the bottom spring and piston before placing the cotter pin?

3. I will have to post a couple times for the pictures...Two is all I can get to download at a time. I have them reduced to 320....that's as small as I see on the computer.....

It won't hurt any to put a grease zerk on the shifter body,and you will like it later. Also drill and tap a drain on bottom of housing. I personally like to drill three 1/2" holes midpoint around the top hat so lube can get to the internals better.

You need the metal cap and felt seal for the shifter lever.
