Congratulations to BLB regular Keone Kele for being the first out of the traps with an unusual manual truck gearshift pattern story for Biglorryblog—and it’s of a Spicer. “Here’s the guide for driving an 18-Speed shift pattern Spicer PRO-SHIFT Hopefully this isn’t much of a confusion as I was trying to figure out how to do the pattern myself. Enjoy! Aloha from Maui Keone.” And click through here for the driver guide..
I’ve saved these in ‘Expando-Vision’ but had to do a screen-grab from the pdf…but they should blow up OK.
And click on this YouTube clip for a video of an Aussie driver with a 16-speed Spicer in his Kenworth who has really got it 100% nailed
What’s interesting for me is that the splits appear to work without dipping the clutch (as you would with something like a ZF Ecosplit)..anyroadup when are we going to get some unusual shift patterns for Fullers or Macks?
