Nice photos of the working parts too, interesting piece, would be fun to install.
But then, it would need clutch foot push and hand shift push, one of each (two) for low, (two) for second, and (two) for high...dang..that's six movements of hand and foot.
The T only needs one push of the foot, and release, and one hand pull of the throttle!
Much better IMO
A really interesting piece. Fortunately I already own a different but similar one
It would be a good museum piece, but they want $2,000 for it and then you need to add a clutch. If you install it and there is any problem with it, Good luck. I would stick with either Ruckstell or Warford, both of which are available new or used and parts are available. And you need to do less modifications to the T.
The fire truck at the MTFCA Museum has one of these; very interesting.
Good luck on finding a replacement low sliding gear!
Yep that low sliding gear seems like someone was trying to shift into low while the car was moving!
It would be nice to know more about how it is built in relation too a supported trans?? I also wonder if use of these helped the crankshaft? How much of this is cast iron instead of pressed sheet metal? Bud.
When I rebuilt the variation on this I found, I had to just make several new gears. Not as bad as it sounds. Just straight cut spur gears from 8620 and case hardened. But at $2,000.00 it does have to be considered. If I owned it, I would look really hard at making it "constant mesh" (a bit similar to the Layne)
I don't plan to buy it!!
The missing clutch components are more worrisome as figuring out them could be interesting (no disc and no flywheel)
At least the pressure plate is there. Could probably figure out a flywheel. I had a Model 91 Overland and it seems like the pressure plate looked like that. It bolted to the flywheel which was hollow and had the disc and seems like a bunch of other stuff there, springs, plates I can't remember. It ran in the motor oil also.
