Ruckstel ring gears are either 39 or 40 tooth.

Pinion choices are 10, 11, 12, 13.

The rest is just math.

Both thirty six and thirty seven tooth ring gears were also made, but I am not sure by whom. I know Ruckstell did make at least one of those, I believe the thirty six.

A standard Ruckstell uses standard T gears.

The gears I have are 37 & 13, 39 & 13, 40 & 11, the 40&11 look like the std. gear but the others have different pinion gears than I have ever seen before?

All authentic "Ruckstell" gear sets I've encountered were all stamped "Ruckstell" - thus my asking. I have a couple sets that are stamped - I'll go count the teeth tomorrow.

I thought that Ruckstell recommended 13:39 when installing a two speed back axle.
Iím still on the road and donít have my reference books to hand and the memory is not as good as I once thought it was...

The 13/37 is really nice in a Ruckstell rear end on a light bodied car like a speedster or runabout. I had a friend years ago that had a set like that in a stock engine speedster. He loved it. Although, a few years later, he put on a B Rajo and really liked those gears!
