When I went to truck driving school years ago (before everything "shifted" to automatics, & now trucks are emerging that drive themselves lol) we were taught double shifting an unsynchronized, manual transmission:

Pretty much everyone has been made aware Ford 8N tractor has a manual, 4-speed unsynchronized transmission, and manual reads: "The tractor should be started in the same gear in which it is to be operated. Do not shift gears while tractor is in motion as the transmission may be damaged"

This does leave me a bit puzzled, as I don't comprehend why double shifting would not function correctly with Ford 8N manual unsynchronized transmission?
