oldmacksrus.com has all the info on motors/trannys/etc.

Look on the drivers side of tranny and you'll find the number telling you what it is....TRQ-XXXX (the last digits telling if single/double O/D ) With that road speed I would bet you have 5+ something gears or worse!

One question? What is a '79 doing with a 673/quad box in it?? Seems pretty new for that combo.

Must be a misprint,R609's weren't made that late.Must have been repowered too,it should have a 711.

I dont think quads were options after the late 60s. a BCR could easly have one and if you have a 673 with a quad. it might be an early R model from the late 60s early 70s? the late 70s had numbers like 686,685 etc... Check your vin number on the frame rail near the pass front wheel to see what the truck came with...if its for shure a 79, it very unlikely that the quad came from the factory. My B61 has a quad and 5.73 rears..thats good for about 62 mph

The engine and the quad box came from factory even in the cab have the metal stikers for the gears.

This truck is non USA made may is this.
