Kenworth K100 1973 Heads up CA Coast
This is my 1973 Kenworth K123 cabover heading up the CA coast for the 2009
ATHS Show in San Luis Obispo. The truck is equipped with a Detroit Diesel
8V-71T and a Fuller Roadranger 13-speed overdrive transmission.
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.
