My and Your TT trucks

Post by Duey_C » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:38 pm

I've shared bits of this ol' TT truck and this is also an experiment and learning for me and this board.
Please share yours! The crummier, the better but I'm nearly alone in this crummy-love! ;) Running or near or could be. :D
Yes. This ol' boy runs pretty dang good!
I think he's a handsome old truck! Just the way he is.

Never to be painted in our care.
I've driven him about a mile in our woods for testing. He's weird!
Next for him are some new rear tires! This year.

My 25 TT has been rebuilt. This is one of my favorite pictures of my TT. I love to see these old TT trucks in their work clothes.

Never seen a DIY Vaporizer plate before!

Buy 2 - they only last 2-3 years. Not expensive.

Good decision to not paint, but maybe clear coat to stop the rust? If you restore it you will definitely miss the old one and its personality.

You drove it for a mile?

What type of auxillary transmission?

5:1 or 7:1 rear?

Mine isn't running. In fact, it isn't together as it was when the picture was taken. It's currently a project in pieces, waiting for me to get around to the engine and the rear axle.

Lucky has the Warford under-direct-over and likely the slow gear set. Never checked. :) He needs a Warford rear support yet.
Last year I read some of the finish could come out from under the rust if one were to use a rubbing compound but I'm so dang dumb and scared of getting the wrong stuff. Some years ago, my son and I had an 83 GMC pickup and the red paint was a little faded so I used a cleaner/wax on the cab.
Within a month, that red paint was a faded flat-dull pink. Looked terrible. Hence my fear but I'm probably over-thinking it. :?
The Vapo-rub repair parts were cheaper than the shipping! Never thought but maybe the new plate IS just plain steel and can believe it's rusting away quietly as I type. :)
Hey! Anyone ever been crazy enough to move a parking brake lever to the center of the cab? I see why a previous user took it out and tossed it in the junk pile.
I'd have a heck of a time getting in and out if it were still there and so did he so I need to to get a parking lever/shaft with the longer cam.
I don't dare drive it down my hill yet so he stays up here in the woods and yep, air up one of the fronts and go back and forth and round and round! :D
By gum. I did a good deed for a fellow forum user today! Makes me happy. :)

My guess is that TT's have a cramped cab so more area could be devoted to the bed and load. One can not even enter the driver side on many with the wood cabs, and even the factory steel cabs are cramped, the seat too close to the steering wheel and pedals.

Mine are drivers and I do the necessary modifications so they are comfortable. Basically, for me the front seat needs to be moved back 6".

Was there a cab made with the front seat far enough back to be comfortable?

Tom,
With all due respect; TT cabs - both factory and aftermarket wooden - are indeed cramped. But they weren’t 85-90 years ago. Preservatives in food, vitamins and much better access to food nowadays make for much larger people. Look at some of Jay’s pictures from the era of the 20s and 30s. I’ve restored 2 Ford enclosed cabs and a C cab TT. And I’m 6’3” and 240 pounds and my C Cab is much more fun to drive - to me - than my 2019 F 250.
One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.

Checking in with our truck. 1920 TT grain dump truck. The first photo is the "For Sale" ad photo. It was in that exact condition when I arrived to pick it up.
1920 Model TT truck passenger side before pick up.jpg
The second photo is after we removed the bed and destroyed the wood due to an infestation of carpenter ants. The truck made the trip but not without some deterioration as can be seen in the photo. Notice the dump mast laying on the frame. I was able to salvage all the parts for restoration and reinstallation.

I was able to save the two pieces of original glass; one in the driver's door and one in the panel behind the passenger doorway. It's amazing that they survived 30 years as yard art in front of an auto restoration place.

I look forward to Steve Jelf working on his TT rear axle. I know it'll be well documented. As with many hobbys, my TT build has been pushed aside for some time, but I'm getting close to getting the rear end in the work area to begin. High speed gear set, Continental 3 speed and Continental auxiliary Brakes. First excuse is which housings to use. The eariler more decorative with the bead or the plain later housings. Both heavier than.......

Here are a couple of pics of my TT dump truck. Ruckstell with 5:1 gears and a Warford. I've had it for about 26 years now. It's a good runner. I can run along on flat ground at 40 m.p.h. It takes a while to get up to that speed though. At about 3000 pounds It doesn't take much of a grade to suck the life out of it. Lot's of fun if I'm not in a hurry to get somewhere. Carl, I have a question. Is that Bob Oliphant in the overalls in your third picture?

Nice truck! Do you have auxiliary braking?
Technology, the solution to all of our problems... and the cause of most of them.

Hi Tom. Yes, I have brakes on the TT. I'm running the repro Rocky Mountain brakes that Bud Williams used to sell. They work quite well (going forward) for such a heavy vehicle. I have them adjusted so that the stock parking brake will grab first if I yank the handle.

Here's my '26 "Hill-billy". We added a cast iron Warford to it along with its Ruckstell rear end. It boots along!!

Hmm, a Marion in the background? No. Similar house tho. Boiler top is way different.
Hey Mack, where's your TT?
Too many questions to ask-things to say! Wow.
Oops. :)
James, that rusty TT (is that on a regular T chassis?) is ultra cool! Even more so if on a regular T chassis!
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated
