10 speed SUPER 10
O K children lets see if we can work our way through this.
A Super 10 is similar to a truck with a 5 speed main transmission and a 2-speed rear drive axle. Only every thing is in one box. This a weight saving plus fewer moving parts. And also runs a lot cooler than transmissions with 13 or 15 speeds , or even 18.
They are mostley desigened for weight saving and running on the Interstate Highway System.
Now for the Hard part, lets try to understand the shift pattern.
The shift pattern is the same as a 9 or 10 or 13 or 15 or 18 direct. Not Overdrive boxes as they usually have the 4th and 5th basic position reversed, USUALLY.
SOOOO we start out in the number 1 position LOW side then move the button and move in to number 1 position HIGH side without movining the stick.
Now comes the hard part kiddies so pay attention. We move the stick to the number 2 position while moving the button back and double clutching, and letting the engine RPM drop back. This results in number 3 gear or the LOW side of position 2.
Then we continue in this fashion, 2 HIGH, 3 LOW< 3 HIGH, 4 LOW, 4 HIGH, 5 LOW, 5 HIGH. Just like a truck with a 5 speed main and 2 speed rear.
An upshift may take a bit longer than a 9 or 10 speed depending on how long it takes the engine to wind DOWN. But a back shift is usually much faster, especially if going from HIGH to Low in the same position.
But in a real life situation depending on the horsepower available you will never move much more than the button from HIGH to LOW while on an Interstate highway.
The transmission can be shifted without using the clutch once you have things underway. BUT kiddies I recomend that you double clutch both up and down because most of you are not that good.
The transmission is manufactured by Fuller with the same basic case as a 9 or 10 speed, or 13 or 15 OR WHATEVER.
SOOO the bottom line is this may not be the transmission for the Super Truckers among you . but if you like comfort. convienence,and ease of operation , in a box that is very forgiving with a weight saving to boot, this may be the transmission for you.
