Can any one tell me about this spring set up please.

since the drive line hole is covered I'm thinking this was used for a heavy duty trailer axle. I know I'd hate to have to move it without a tractor.

Is it the 1928 AA laying upside down? Bud.

Isn't that a TT Ruckstell??

Yes, it's a Ruckstell with non-TT springs attached.

There was a two ton truck extension/conversion offered for the TT trucks that had a multiple spring setup like that. I saw an advertisement for it years ago.
I also know that the earliest AA trucks used a modified TT rear end. I saw a couple of those many years ago. They had their own spring setup not like a TT, but not like that either. Been a LONG time since I had a good close look at those.
I have wondered a few times? Whether the TT Ruckstell would fit that early AA or not?

Related but a little drift:

I've always thought putting a Ruckstell in a TT is somewhat odd. I don't have a Ruckstell, but I do have a Muncie in mine. Ford low/Muncie under will climb a tree. It's humorous to think of a TT with a Ruckstell and an auxiliary transmission. Ford low/Muncie under/Ruckstell under would allow you to go for lunch without shutting it down. :-)

Yes but with a TT in, Ford high, Warford or Muncie low, Ruckstell low, it allows the truck working picking in row crops to have boxes loaded on the truck with out stopping mid row.

I just don't understand why someone would dig a big hole, put a TT in it upside down, and then fill the hole up to the spring shackles......

It's funny you say that Kevin. When I was around 16 I used an old Ford pick-up with a granny 4 speed to haul hay. I'd put it in 1st gear, pull the choke just enough to step up the idle a little, point it down the row of bales, then walk behind it bucking the hay into the bed with hay hooks. I had to hurry at the end of the row to jump in, turn it around, and point it down the next row. (Yes, I did this alone.)


The amazing part of that memory is understanding that it's a miracle we survive our teens at all. :-)

TT Ford low, Lane Warford low will also climb a tree. But it won't jump limb to limb.

Sincerely

Jim Weir

I saw an old photo in the old Cars and Parts magazine once that showed a TT set up pulling a load of logs. It was so low and slow that the driver was walking in front adding water to the radiator.
