    Do you really need to use 1st gear in these old trucks?

    Or is it ok to start out in 2nd gear.

    You won't hurt the clutch/trans if you don't use 1st gear will you?
  2. it shoul not, try it and see. you may have to use first on a hill, etc. or a load.

    If you have a farmer four, start in Second unless under a load. If it's a three speed, start in First.
