that brings a question to mind.  Was a Model A or Ford V8 transmission synchronized?  Could you shift “on the fly”?

No, they were not. Double clutching was an important skill.

What happened?  Jamming gears without stopping first

Naw just a little sloppy and hard to find gears. Surely no syncros ... don't think they were invented yet!

I don't have experience in a Ford A, but I could speed  shift my  first car, a '30 Dodge ,  without using the clutch.

I agree Ed, with a little experience yes.

 

We learned it here in the driving school 36years ago also to drive with double clutch.

The first VW beetles had an unsycronized gearbox but we drove all actual Cars

like VW Golf GTI or Opel Manta or Opel GT Roadster ( the micro Corvette)

 

Independently of that my driving trainer teaches me you can also use doubleclutch on modern cars,

that was never a mistake. Now it is automatically in me, i use it since .

My PK has a Borg Warner T-92 that would grind gears. Had to wait for the main shaft to slow down enough. A mix of 90wt., STP and Lucas Oil Stabilizer seems to have pretty much solved the problem.:banana-wrench:

So is this what I can expect at the Big Show ?… a bunch of old farts sitting around, having beverages of their choice, and talking about old cars and tractors ?

 

Can’t wait !  :lol::lol:

Remember to bring a folding chair and a c_ _ p sack to hold all the small parts that you buy. Check out @Ed Kennell magic bucket trailer. He might even sell you a 5 gallon bucket .

Normally I'm the first canopy as you walk straight in. (Got to get the spot first! ) :) Look for the 12 X 12 gray Coleman Canopy. Last year it was the "hospitality tent" Even these 2 stragglers @Achto @WHX?? hung out quite a bit. We even traded lawn chairs! :lol:

Should we get started the Caption This now? Or wait until the new show pics come out?

How do y’all put those conversation bubbles on there ?

Can you do it on a phone ?
I guess you need to download an app for it ?

If you don't get that thing running soon the "Garden Tractor Mafia" boys will come by and strip it for sure!      :scared-eek:     Just look at the job they did on that 14 HP No-Name!            :banana-ninja:          Guy only turned his back for a couple minutes.
