The second transmission is a 3 speed Brownie. It gives you a lower gear, a direct gear, and an overdrive. Very desirable setup. I have one in my '53 dump truck.

Yep, a rear roller and pivot points definitely says "oilfield". Pieces of drill stem were stored on the overhead rack, and a long set of A-frames (gin poles) and a winch were used to pull a section of drill pipe off the rack, stand it up, and screw the pieces together as the hole got deeper. There are lots of them sitting around any area where oil drilling goes on- - - -usually beat up and worn out a lot worse that this one, though!

Dan,

That extra trans. Looks like an early Brownie. Might be tag under all that preservative.

Preservative! Now that's a good term for it Ed. The whole underside is very well "preserved" indeed!

Thanks for all the info, I'll come back with some proper pics as soon as I get it over to the car wash. The next item I want to tackle is figuring out the motor castings. For all intents and purposes I think I'm going to stick with the "near original" drive train components. I'm hoping that as well equipped as she is that someone took the time to find a 261 to put in there.

Fingers crossed!

It might take more than the car wash to clean it up. I use a strong putty knife and then some mineral spirits or gasoline in the winter with a heavy parts washing brush.

Dan Beluscak Think you gave it away when you said back window knocked out !! Gin poles are heavy pipe attached at the edge of the bed.They extend out behind and are attched at the top with an "A' shaped heavy steel fork that goes into the pipe. Then your cable goes thru a snatch block hanging on that "A" shaped bracket. The "gin Poles are then chained to the headache rack about cab roof high. When you go over like a river levee the gin poles can upset and throw stuff thru the back glass of the cab !! That is why you chain them down. All oilfield guys learn this ! A snatch block (pully) is made so you can easily take the cable out of it.

Dan Does that truck have a "tail " roller on the bed ?? About a 6 inch pipe across the bed that rools real easy. If so your in the winch truck game too !! LOL
