Those gears and the complexity are amazing considering how old the truck is. Great pics and explanation of the whole project my friend, how many Golden's can ride in it?

The cab is pretty tight. I figure I can take one big golden and one puppy. So, a 1.5 golden capacity


No room in the back with the tow rig?

Nope. That space is for you. The Goldens ride up front. Lol

If anyone is enthused by this thread and looking for a REALLY rare heavier duty project like this, this seems pretty cool. There are very few of this make left (probably less than dozens)and this ran 10 years ago according to the add.

The downside is parts are unubtainium, so you'll need to make your own

My buddy has been working on my driveshaft assembly. It requires matching work, and he has access to a lathe and end mill.

Here is a standard Model TT driveshaft. The driveshaft is the skinny one. The driveshaft rotates inside the non-rotating torque tube. The fatter tube is the torque tube.

Image


The forward end of the drive shaft is squared off and fits into a universal joint, which in turn connects to the transmission. Here is a look at those parts

Image

Image


Since I have a 12” long Warford auxiliary transmission installed behind the Ford transmission, the driveshaft and torque tube have to be shortened 12 inches. First up is the torque tube. Here is a full length torque tube

Image


Here is a torque tube shortened 12 inches, by cutting off the end nearest to the differential. Those longer parts are radius rods that triangulate and stabilize the rear axle. They need to be shortened too.

Image


The shortened torque tube then slides into a collar at the differential. Here it is test-fit in place.

Image


Finally, a bushing is pressed into the forward end of the torque tube. The driveshaft rotates inside this bushing. You have to drill a hole in the side of the bushing, where it lines up with an external grease cup. That way the driveshaft receives grease at the bushing.

Image


Next is the drive shaft. The drive shaft is cut off on its forward end, nearest the transmission. Then the flats have to be re-machined in the cut end to square it off, so it goes into the universal joint.

Image


The other end of the driveshaft is splined, as is the worm gear in the differential. They just butt up, and this coupler holds them together

Image


Here is the driveshaft test-fit to the differential

Image


Next up is shortening the radius rods and then rolling the rear axle under the truck
