Let me tell you what happens when you put your car in reverse when you are going forward at 10 mph,
the motor spins backwards,bends the valves,breaks the oil pump shaft,strips the distributor gear,breaks the camshaft,stretches the connecting rods,this is what happened to me in a 1975 mercury monarch,460 4 barrel,i bought it for 150 bucks and spent 1700 on a new motor,was it worth it,,,,,no!! will I ever do that again,,,,,no!

Hi.. IN CASE YOU DONT NO THAT A CAR /TRUCK /OR BUS HAS TO COME TO A FULL STOP BEFORE CHANGING GEARS FROM ANY GEAR TO ANY OTHER EVEN STOP.
EVEN AUTO MATIC BOX
THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN CHANGE ON THE GO IS A PRE SELECTOR BOX.
