As John ahs pointed out RTO613 will fit. You will have to shorten the tailshaft & change the Gear knob over..!

I tend to think you would achieve the same on road drive-ability (same top 5 ratios) with an RTO-610 as you would with an RTO-613, (you just wouldn't have the 3 low creeper gears), and an RTO-610 might be easier to find.

Either way, it is my understanding that all gear changes with either box will be a stick change. As far as i know the 600 series 13 speed boxes don't split the top 4 gears like a 900 series, the 600 series have 3 gears in LOW, 5 gears in INTERMEDIATE, and 5 gears in HIGH, every gear being a stick change. Someone please correct me if i have got that wrong.

I have an idea i read somewhere once that the 6613 is an updated version of the 613, i think something to do with differently cut gears, but again happy to be corrected.

My memory says five gears in low, four in intermediate and four in high/direct.

Brett is correct ...3,5,5

But the best way to drive the little 13 speeds is the same as a 15 speed

All 5 in Low .... Then 4th and 5th in Intermediate.... Then all 5 in Direct

You might Laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you're all the same
