I was wondering what trannsmissions on what farmalls let you shift will driving i can do it on our super c from 3rd to 4th on the road what other farmall models allow you too do this.
The transmission on the Super C, and most other tractors for that matter, is not syncronized. In other words, you're not supposed to shift while the clutch is engaged or the tractor is moving. You may get away with it some of the time, or even most of the time. But, one day you will grind the gears and possibly damage the transmission. I'd advise not doing it any more.

i know some tractors gears are made do shift but i think only the higher gears like 4th that you cant start out in
Don't no body know how to "Double-Clutch" anymore?

IH's tractors, except some of the "worldwide" utility models, didn't have sychronizers in the tranny. Their big tractors didn't get synchro's until the early 80's! I havent' been around a Farmall that you couldn't go from 3rd to 4th, or 4th to 5th, while rolling if you shift properly. If you're "good," you can double clutch and shift on the go. I have heard of people driving 1066's like semi's--winding them up in a lower gear, let off the throttle, ease it into the next higher gear, and hammer down again, etc. till they are in high gear. Only do that if you're REALLY good.
A little gear grinding is not good, but not the end of the world either. I try to take my time shifting to avoid it. Don't "slam" it in gear. Some of these old tractors require you to "grind em to find em" if there's a "draggy" clutch, etc. Seems like the more used to a tractor I am, the less likely I am to grind gears--if I was to climb onto one of your Cub's, I would probably grind a time or two until I got used to it's "nuances."

Well could one of you guys explain by what you mean isnt it wear you push clutch in take it out of gear then put it in where netrual should be then push clutch back in then shift to the next gear am i right??????????????????????????????????????///
Somewhat, you need to bring your engine almost to an idle before putting it back in gear and the timing of the shift has to be just right. For as fast (or slow) as a Cub goes, by that time you have just about rolled to a stop so you might as well do it right anyway.
