Skip shifting may be accomplished when upshifting through any range, providing the higher range position
is selected prior to the gear shift. This also applies to downshifting. DO NOT SELECT RATIOS WHERE ENGINE
OVERSPEEDS OR ENGINE LABORING MIGHT OCCUR.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE ANY RANGE SHIFTS EITHER UP OR DOWN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS
MOVING IN REVERSE. STAY IN THE RANGE ORIGINALLY SELECTED. COUNTERSHAFT BRAKE MUST BE
USED PRIOR TO SHIFTING INTO REVERSE GEAR.
When slowing down for a "stop" or "slow" sign, shift down through the individual short steps. By following
this procedure the compression of the engine will slow the vehicle. The life of brakes can thus be prolonged.
