How do you lub the Moore transmission? There is a drain plug on the bottom and there are small bolts on top over the roller bearings. Does it lub from the axle oil? Thanks!

Mark, do you know if oil is added in the two small bolt holes over the roller bearings? There is a drain plug in the bottom of the transmission so changing the oil looks possible. I will look these documents closer to see if I am missing the information I need.

I note that the Moore is made in Connersville, Indiana. The Lincoln
transmission was also made in Connersville, Indiana.

A connection here ?

I am curious to know if these could be built as overdrives. As
I read the pamphlet, I see an underdrive for both forward and reverse.

From what I know of them the Moore transmission for cars had a low and high range. That is the one I have in my 1914 Roadster. It sounds like the truck Moore transmission added more forward gears and reverse gears. It looks like they use 90 weight oil from what I can find. I am not sure where to add it to the transmission.

No, I don't own a Moore, but if you look at the thread in the link I posted, the Moore that Jay showed looked like it had a fill plug on the side.

If yours doesn't, perhaps you could PM one of the folks that posted in that other thread for assistance.

If you want to search the forum for other posts on Moore transmissions, the best way is to use Google. Just search for "Moore transmission MTFCA" and a bunch of older threads will come up.

Good luck! :-)

Wait, I think there is a square plug 1/2 way up the side. Maybe that is the fill plug?

Thanks all for the help. I just needed to look closer at your link Mark, thanks!

That's a good bet, but PM one of the guys on the older thread that owns one to verify for sure.

I have been looking at the wrong side of the transmission. On the drivers side is the square plug to fill the transmission. It is so easy when you look on the correct side! Thanks to all! It was almost completely out. It took about 1 pint to fill it.

I have a similar issue ... I'll think I gave an area a thorough look
over for say ... catsup, and then ask the wifeperson where she put it.
She'll come over and produce the item from right under my nose.

Unsure how she does this time after time. Perhaps a Vega act
would be a good career option for her ?

A cursory interweb search produced this link quote, but the link
did not work:

"(Moore also created the Improved Moore Transmission, later known
as the Lincoln Utility Transmission, which doubled the pulling power
of Ford's Model T trucks ..."
