Default Re: '41 Ford COE questions

cwh...good progress on your '41 refurb...tell us how it goes...

Also, on the derelict COE, how does the 2-speed rear axle shifter work. Normally I've seen a large vacuum diaphragm and vacuum lines run from a knob actuating a cable to the vacuum valve. This truck appears to have a third lever in the cab (hand brake, transmission, and rear axle???) Is there a mechanical linkage to the rear axle? It appears that way from the rear axle photos.

Can you confirm? I'd be interested in the mechanical linkage and lever if it's complete. My truck is locked in high because the vacuum assembly leaks and I think a mechanical shift would be more reliable (but might be harder time the shift).
