Anyone know if a 8031G would be a good auxilary transmission for my 1948 Chevy two ton? I can't find any info on it.

I dont know much about the auxillarys, but a good question to ask is, what do you want out of it? Are you looking for overdrive, underdrive, hauling or towing?


Hey guys, hows the weather? grin

8000 series is HUGE
7000 series is to big for all practical purposes in an AD 1.5 or 2 ton.
6000 series is on the verge of being to big for an AD 1.5 or 2 ton, but would probably be OK.
5000 series (5831) would be ideal with stock engine.

I have some pictures of auxiliary transmissions of different sizes on my web shots account (link below).

Oh Fudge!!!!!. That 8031 has all the brackets, shifter and links and is just $200. I will keep hunting for a 5831. I was wanting to get a little more highway speed for my truck when I haul my antique tractor.

Not sure what model tractor you have, but if it is of any size, and your truck has a stock, or reasonably stock 6 cylinder, you won't need any faster gears, as you won't have the power.

The auxiliary, if it is OD, would be helpful when unloaded or lightly loaded, or if you have more HP available.

At least my 1 ton with a 1955 235, 4.56 gears, and 32" tires was geared about right when I had 3,000 or 4,000 lb in the bed, an OD gear would have done me no good. When empty it would have been a great help.

Grigg-

It would sure be helpful if you could write a tech tip about the Brownies.

I agree-I'm hoping to acquire a 10 speed Mono Shift for my '45 Mack,and if that happens I'll be looking at putting its current 6031 into my '57 GMC 350.

Grigg, You might have saved me some time and trouble. I didn't realize the engine wouldn't have enough muscle to run the overdrive. I'll put cup holders in instead and enjoy a coffee as I go down the highway. The tractor is small as tractors go, an Oliver Super 55. It weighs about 3200 lbs. What kind of rig did they put those 5831 spicers in then if it wasn't something like my 2 ton with a 235 in it?
