Old 7 speed
« on: April 13, 2019, 05:34:13 AM »
Some of you guys have been around big trucks for years so...
I'm thinking about going to look at a 78 Brigadier with a 7 speed. Any idea whose trans that would be? Synchro like the new ones?

T14607B Is one possibility, it is a twin counter shaft Fuller, non synchronized. It is a straight 7 speed, no high/ low air shift. It was popular in buses before the Allison took over. If you buy this unit by prepared to deal with a "parts no longer available", problem. good luck.
