That is interesting.

If it is a hydraulic motor on the side, one shud see some sort of joint line

in the white box area, so the oil in the motor would be contained.

Sure would be nice to find out more about this.

Didnt they use electric motors on them too?


In all the applications I've seen they were powered by an electric motor via V-belt drive in order to get the desired output speed by means of pulley ratios in conjunction w/ the gearbox ratio. Don't know about the Falks, but all the Dodge's I dealt w/ came in 5:1, 15:1 or 25:1. I'm still awaiting more pics.

Maybe these pics will help give a better view.  It looks like it has some threaded ports on top of the protrusion.  Thanks for any input.

  Unless I'm missing it in the pics, I see only one plastic plug. The protusion has two soft plugs in one end and one soft plug in the other end like it has two parallel shafts inside. I see one soft plug in the middle like it has one countergear and the axle has a gear attached to it. Unless it has a sprag clutch on one side of the axle there'd be a lot of tire skidding making turns. It has me stumped!! If you decide to clean it up, hopefully you'll find a metal data tag to tell us more.

I am going to clean it as soon as weather permits.  I thought maybe it would be obvious to somebody right off the bat.  Thanks for the input.
