Does anyone have a copy of a TT Ruckstell diagram/drawing and parts list they could send to me?My Ruckstell is incomplete and I am at a loss to know what is missing.
Does anyone know where I can find a supplier of new Sun gears and any other items I may need?
Adrian from NZ has helped me with the worm and wheel
and they have been ordered.Thanks Adrian.
Thankyou,
Gavin.

I am a member of both the International Club, MTFCI and MTFCA. These clubs and the information they publish complement each other.
I put the Ruckstell TT Axle Parts List PDF attachment together with info from MTFCI and their Technical Library.

I suggest you join both clubs. The material available on line is Super!

OOPS, looks like I can't post it.
Send me an e-mail and I will get it to you.

Gavin, an essential book to buy is the MTFA Ruckstell rebuild book, it has a section specifically on TT with pictures, parts list and detailed overhaul instructions. You can get it from all the main suppliers and direct from the MTFA web site. Well worth the purchase.
Cheers
Adrian

as I recall Chaffins makes T ruxstell parts, not TT ruxstell parts?

I think you are right John.
The shifter and yoke etc are all 'standard' and Chaffins have nmost of the bits for these, but the actual TT Rickstell diff cluster is very different.
Cheers
Adrian

Shifter is peculiar to the TT also Adrian - all parts larger than the car shifter. Also four mounting bolts holding shifter to axle housing rather than the three for the car.

Thanks Steve.
I don't have a car Ruckstell, but the levers, front yoke look the same. The shaft to the diff is longer in the TT and does not cross over the torque tube like in a car. There are two shfters, 'short' and 'long nose' for the car.
The internal springs and at least some yoke, plunger, seals, shift arm parts are the same as the 'long nose' car shifter body. The 'long nose' external casings are different between the car and TT from looking at a Macs catalogue and the Ruckstell TT parts list.
Cheers
Adrian

I have Ruckstells in 3 of our cars and one in my Gramp's TT Adrian and I have both styles of shifters - you are correct in only just a few of the late style shifter components are interchangable.

I have a Ruckstell Axel the ID tag is still tacked on it, and is still legible! Now I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it would be worth, it is in decent condition, all the wood on the wheels are there, and it does turn like it should. the serial number is 521963 and right under where is says ruckstell axel is says Four Speeds for Fords. If some one could let me know that would be great, oh and the manufacture date was back in 1907

The manufacture date can't be 1907, it would have to be 27, as the Ruckstell didn't come on the market until 1922.

A car type one is worth 500-1000 in original unrestored condition depending partly on whether it has the long nose shift lock or not. With the short nose shift lock, complete with torque tube, radius rods etc. it should be worth 6-700. With the long nose shift lock it is worth 800-1000; a little but not much more if it is a big drum. They will bring 1200 in some areas if they look extra nice. You can buy a new one for 2,000.

Truck ones are worth 2-400, again the long nose shift lock is worth more by a hundred or so.

Chaffin's does manufacture all of the parts for the passenger car Ruckstells. We also manufacture a few parts for the truck Ruckstells and stock all of the available parts, but all parts are not available and you have to look for good used parts. There is just not as big of a demand for truck Ruckstell parts to make it worth it to manufacture them.
