AC B shift on the fly

Can anyone tell me if they shift their Allis B tractor on the fly? Seems like a strain to start from a dead stop in 3rd and going through the gears I seem to grind them a bit before they drop in. Is this normal or is there a trick I'm missing?

It depends on the load- and that's where experience and common sense come in. And, how much you enjoy installing new clutches. Empty tractor, light load, road gear is ok, otherwise- go through the gears- even with straight-cut gears, you can shift on the go without making a pile of shavings.

Tractors have square cut gears for strength but NO synchro to allow you to shift on the fly. They're meant to start in the gear you need but anyone who's crunched a bee's nest in low gear can tell you....

When neccessary, you can indeed shift on the fly.

I've gone from 1st to 6th on my Massey Ferguson and it also has square cut gears.
