NEED SOME HELP HERE -- Robbie Dalton is buying this Ruckstell from Linda. The Ruckstell is located in Olympia, WA, and Robbie is in Australia.
Is there anyone in the Olympia area who would be willing to pick up this Ruckstell and ship it to Robbie? (With compensation, of course.) It probably would need to have the driveshaft and radius rods removed and then all the parts strapped to a pallet. Robbie will make the arrangements and payments for shipping, he just needs someone local to do some legwork.
I'm just trying to facilitate this, so you can contact either me (email@example.com) or Robbie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to help him out. Thanks a bunch.
I just got an email from Robbie, saying that David Dare, who is more familiar with dealing with folks in the USA in matters such as this, has stepped up to offer him assistance. Thank you David.
Someone in the Olympia, WA area is still needed to facilitate the shipping, so don't be shy!
I was wondering since they didn't make a Ruckstell before the early '20s, how could it be a pre-20s Ruckstell? And is this saying it has the early hubs made in 1909-10? Confusing!
"Has the small hubs and not the large."
Larry -- I take this to mean small backing plates, not small hubs.
The lady offering this for sale is not a Model T expert. Her Dad was the Model T'er in the family, but he passed away a while back. Maybe he told her it was a "pre-'26 Ruckstell" and she remembered it incorrectly.
Ruckstell purchased the rights to the Perfecto Axle in early 1921 so this could not be a pre-20's Ruckstell. He initially produced the Perfecto until he could make all of the design changes he wanted and then started producing the Ruckstell in late 1921. It's all in my book, "Glover E. Ruckstell and the Ruckstell Axle. See the Vintage Ford for details. Glen
