Tranny Question

I'm sure some of you have heard of the T-19 transmission. It is hard to find any information on it. Where would one might find this tranny? And how is it like the T-18? Does it have the low range first gear? Are all the gears the same as the T-18? I do know that all the gears are synchronized.

Re: Tranny Question

The T-19 has a synchro 1st and first is only 5.11 as opposed to 6.32 for the T-18. Size of the trans is identical.

Re: Tranny Question

The T-19 is a really good tranny. They were used in ScoutII's and Ford trucks that I know of.
CJJeepercreeper is right about the ratio of the gears.
I don't think that jeep trucks ever had them but I may be wrong, I think they only had the T-18.
I would look for a ScoutII, International truck or Traveler, or a Ford truck for the tranny.

Re: Tranny Question

Actually it would be a really good trans in a vehicle that doesn't have real deep diff gears, say 3.31 or even 3.07. First would be usable on the street, you wouldn't have the problem of starting out in a granny gear or a too tall second and have to slip the clutch. Second in those two trannies is very close, 3.03 for the 19. 3.09 for the 18. Any way you look at it, 5.11 is a heck of a lot better than 4.03, which is 1st in a T4/5 and some others.

Re: Tranny Question

T-19's came in Scouts & Ford Trucks. The case length is the same as the T-18, the main difference is the syncro first. There are 3 different versions, the most common Ford had the 5.11 first gear, and most of the Scouts came close ratio w/ 4.02. There was is also a wide ratio Scout T-19 that came w/ a 6.32 First, but is less common. I'm in the process of using a Scout close ratio T-19 mainshaft, a 2wd Scout wide ratio countershaft and gears, and a Ford input shaft and transmission case to go into my 78 CJ-5 w/ 258.
The Scout version should have the adapter plate to mate to a Dana 20. The only problem with it is that it doesn't have mounting holes for the mounting bushing like the original Jeep T-18 version has. You can purchase the adapter from Advance Adapters though. I'm still trying to figure if I can rig up some other way to mount it.

Some Ford F-250's had the T-19 in the early 80's. Scouts had them from '75-'80. They should have a casting number of 13-09 as opposed to the 13-01 of a T-18. Also, there are two PTO plates instead of the one on the T-18.

Hope this helps.

Re: Tranny Question

I looked into these for my older brother, and actually found one from a Ford, complete with hydraulic PTO setup for $750. In the Fords, they were used in the mid-80's behind the 460 and the diesel exclusively. This is info from my brother, but he's a guru at this stuff.
