How to shift a Spicer 16 speed
How to use a Spicer ProShift transmission in my Kenworth .
It is a 16 speed with overdrive.
The 16 speed is similar to the 14 speed which is much more common, except
the air-shift pattern is different.
The first 3 gears in the main box ( controlled with the gearstick ) each
have 4 gears on the air shift ( the blue control on the gearstick ). This
gives 12 gears.
The top 2 gears on the stick you only use 2 airshift positions , like on a
13 or 18 speed RoadRanger , so this gives 16 gears in total.
A compound shift is changing gears with the air-shift and main gearbox at
the same time.
You don't need to use the clutch except when starting and when using the
airshift in 1st gear in the main box.
All this info is easy for truck drivers who can operate a Road Ranger ,
which is the most common transmission in Australia. But it is a harder box
to use than a Road Ranger.

1973 White-Freightliner Cabover with 318 hp Detroit Diesel 8v71
Here's a walk around and drive of my 73' Freightliner. It has a 318 horse
Detroit 8v71, coupled to a Fuller 13 speed and tandem axels. It's been a
work in progress and I've done a lot so far but there's tons more to do.
This is my second Detroit powered truck and this one is a blast to drive.
The engine runs great and the tranny is very easy to shift once you get the
hang of it. It has a Jake brake which helps with braking as well as making
shifting a lot easier. Enjoy!

This is an official video from the Eaton/Road Ranger websit showing how
they reccomend you drive a 13 and/or 18 speed gearbox.
Can be found somewhere on this site -
