Default Please tell me about this Ruckstell

Will this bolt up in place of a regular model A rear axle? Is it an underdrive or overdrive. Says on it "four speeds for Fords."
For a special project, I am trying to slow down a car with a standard model A three speed tranny and rear axle.

Not Model A. it is a Ford Model T Ruckstell. the tubes have been shortened to used on a doodle bug. It would take a heck of a lot of work to adapt it to a Model A, esp as the tubes have been shortened. It would give you 3 speeds plus reverse in underdrive and how slow it would go depends on the ring and pinion installed.

If you want to slow down that much, install a truck 4 speed, would still be a bit of work.
