Pulled the plug on the 'punkin'('62 Hawk) to look inside and determine if it was a TT transmission or not. I'm not sure what I should be seeing.What would I see if it was a TT and what if it wasn't? The rest of the disc conversion is going well. Turner Brake kit sure is slick!

Mine had a tag on the side stating which oil to use for the TT, also a ratio tag w/TT on it. Also if you jack up the rear end and spin one wheel, it will spin in the opposite direction if it's not a TT.

What you should be seeing is a solid, thick looking chunk of metal, interfering from the left, about Ĺ inch in depth into the hole and blocking it by about 70%. That chunk of metal is the clutch pack carrier, telling you that itís a TT.

If it isn't a TT, when using a flashlight and looking into the fill hole, you should be able to see the stock carrier and ring gear and should be able to stick your finger in the hole without any restriction. Hope this helps.

Sonny nailed it. When you take out that filler plug, the TT clutch pack is RIGHT THERE. [:0] If it's not a TT, you can easily stick your whole finger inside.;)

BTW - you said "Transmission" - I hope you meant REAR AXLE, cause you're not gonna find any TT pieces in the Transmission![xx(]

Miscreant at large.

I overheard a savvy old mechanic tell someone, "If you can only get your finger in to the first knuckle, it's a TT. If your finger goes in further, it's a 'one legger'.

StudeBob you are right I did say transmission but meant rear end. Thanks to all for the replies, I'll pull the plug on the 'rear end' again and have another look.
