any 10 speeds that mate to a 5.9 cummins

I was wondering if there were any applications that would have 10 speed trannies like eaton fuller mounted to a cummins 5.9. I have seen that spicer 7 speeds have been put in f800s. but I have never used one. the whole reason I am asking is for my project 1977 f250 cummins. I like big truck trannies more than pickup trannies they just shift nicer. it is just a thought i am trying to look into. thanks

I have seen a F350 with a 10spd behind it. I would opt for the 13spd myself. Never liked the gearing of the 10.

Not exactly sure, but I would assume that it has a standard #1 or #2 SAE bellhousing? Don't know all details of what size is what, but sure someone here should know.

I don't think a twin countershaft transmission will fit in an F-250 unless it is modified beyond belief. Big box trannies are, well, huge.

The best small box single countershaft choice would be a 13 speed road ranger. It's a small box tranny that is likely to fit. Very common, well liked, but hasn't been in production for several years.

I drove an early 90's F-900 tandem with one and I really liked it. Wish I had bought that truck.

a thirteen spd is fine i have seen two different types. one had low direct and high which i prefer and the other had your high and low with a splitter on the high side. i dont know the proper names though. I have two industrial 6bts to work with so as soon as the is available to have me come get them i will know which housings i have to work with. it sure would be nice to have some gear options so i could cruise empty in the top gear at 70 and 15-1600 rpm. then when i pull any loads i can always drop a gear. thats my thoughts to try for good mileage. I may have 3.55 gears in the back to pull it off tho. thank you guys for your input the quest continues

The F350 I saw, had a twin countershaft trans. The truck had a flatbed and dual exhaust stacks, too.

i think you can mount a 10 speed on your cummins. you can even put a 13 speed on it. Not the 13 speed your thinking of. this 13 speed has like 3 low gears then goes from there..

Just remember the Road Ranger RTLO6613 13 speed only has a 660lb input torque limit. Not much torque before she'll grenade.

why not put a gearvendors OD Box on it you will have your double over to run empty plus it was designed to be shifted on the fly, if you have plenty of reduction in low and reverse, and are just wanting to split the gears and gain a taller high gear its really the best opt. before you go and hack up a good truck I got the G-56 in my pickup I know where your coming from

We have put 3 RT613's in ford pickups. They fit very nice with just a 2" cab lift behind the cummins in anything newer than the 92 F250. The older trucks have to narrow a "hump" to fit it into. I have another 93 F350 in the shop now with a 5.9 and a RTO613 going in it. I can post pics if you like. I also converted this trans from an RT to an RTO. They will not grenade if you hit 'em with more than 650 ft/lbs, that's the continuous rating. You can't blow one in a pickup. We have put at least 900 through one and have never had trouble yet. Remember, it's a heck of a lot tougher than what dodge puts behind em.

How come you guys engines miss every other powerstroke? Your truck, 0 to 180 in 1-2-3-4stroke, My Truck, 0 to 180 in 1-2stroke!
I belive truck boxes are infinitely cooler than 30" rims -You can't store squat in a hubcap.
