    13 is easy, you'll get the hang of it in a few minutes.


    For posting a pic you'll have to host it some where else and then link it over here. If you can't figure it out PM me the link and I'll do it.

    pattern

    all most all trans have the same basic H pattern it's how they arrange the gears and the splitters that make the difference. You have to remember you are shifting 1 or 2 or sometimes 3 boxes as we called them in the old days when each one had a stick now they use air to shift part of it. But a basic 10 speed and a 13 pattern are the same the top side is where you get the extra gears. you split each top gear to get the extra gears in it. You will get the hang of it real quick unless you carry allot of real heavy loads you probably want split anything but the top gear anyway until you get comfortable with it then you will split them on the up hill side and the down hill side both. I love a 13 its the best all around transmission there is in my mind.

    13 speed is like a 9 speed but you can split the top gears
