3 Speed Brownie Transmission

Hi everyone! I am looking for a ranch pickup and have been considering the IDI powered Ford. Anyway, found one which has had a Brownie installed. The pickup is in fairly good condition, but I really dont need or want the brownie. I think that I would like to remove and sell it if I do end up with the pickup. Just wondering if anyone woud be interestedin buying or maybe know of a good place to sell it (aside from the classifieds on this site). The pickup is a 1991 F250 5-speed 4X4 ex cab longbed.

Thanks!

If you're using the truck as a ranch truck, why would you not want a super creeper gear?

I'm not sure what you've got, but most aux transmissiopns have an under drive, direct and an overdrive. That combination should make it perfect for a farm truck.

haha, well, it would be great for farm use, except that it hangs down fairly low and some of my offroading gets pretty wild! I would be burning WMO in it also, so fuel mileage is not a huge concern. Yes, it is the under direct over transmission.

It's an auxilary transmission designed to go betweeen the main trans and the rear axle. It allows you to match engine RPM to load requirements. Especially usful for low HP engines doing major work.

As a matter of fact, I had a 2wd Dodge diesel with a brownie. I really don't know what the double OD did for its fuel economy, as I filled out of the tank at home or with wmo and did not know how much I put in. It did not help that most of the driving was around the place and I did not do too much highway driving. The fella I bought it off of said that he had it to allow him to tow in 4th gear instead of 5th when going down the highway. There must have been some local who installed these things at one time!

Anyway, Im guessing that I will probably end up NOT buying the pickup, but we will see.
