The writing on the unit read Hess Scott auxiliary transmission. Under the name is model TD I believe and number 608 Next line, truck attachment company Seattle,wash. It bolts up directly to the rear end. Was this unit built before the ruxtell axel?Could both t and tt use it?2 speed? This unit appeared complete except there was no shifting linkage with it. Was it a dependable transmission? There was no visible date on the housing casting.Thanks for any info you may have on it.

Galen,
Do you mean a Hall Scott two speed rear axle? If so it is the same as a Ruckstell. Post a picture.

Scott, I may have miss read the name on the casting but thought it was Hess Scott. This unit is an in line rig that has a shortened drive line that is bolted right to the rear end. The fact that Scott was in the name and it was made in Seattle made me think it was made by the ruxtell folks. I will try to get out to the barn and get a few pictures and try to post them this afternoon. Thanks Scott

You nailed it Mark. That is just like my transmission. The modified drive line is with it but no linkage. It would be nice to talk to someone that has one installed in their T. Just wondering how they performed. Thanks Mark. This forum is great!
