This discussion reminds me of something.

Back when I was a kid, a neighbor had my father do some minor thing to his Super A. He had his son (maybe a year older than me) drive the tractor over while he come over in his truck. The whole trip was under a mile and a half. The father got to our place, said the tractor was on its way, and then everybody waited. From our yard, you could easily see nearly half way to their place. Eventually the tractor came into sight. Then we waited and watched some more. Turned out, he had made the whole trip in third because he couldn't get the tractor started in fourth. We were all bewildered.

When the tractor was ready for the return trip, the son got back on the tractor, put it in third and started out the driveway. My dad took about 3 steps and hopped up on the drawbar, saying "put the clutch down". As soon as the kid recovered from the shock of having somebody yelling straight in his ear, he complied. Dad pulled the shift lever back into fourth, yelled "now go" and stepped back off the drawbar. we never did find out what the kid did when he got to the stop sign two thirds of the way home.
