The correct term is the Sherman Step Up/Step Down or the Combo Transmission. The first Ford 9N aux tranny offered by Sherman was the Step Up as farmers wanted a faster road speed to get to and from their fields. Time is money. farmers would head out in the morning to farm/work as quickly as possible and then return for dinner (we call it lunch now) in mid-afternoon and then get back out to farm more before dark and head home for supper. We have a lot of info here on the Shermans in our MANUALS and HOW-TO's forums -see LINK for one. Also, the CLYMER/I&T FO-4 Manual has a section on Sherman transmissions and the 53-59 MPC also does too. Frequent member Kirk-NJ knows a lot about the Shermans, has a few, and a has rebuilt a few. Archive search ALL keywords with his name and Shermans and you'll get over 125,000 hits.
