Were Warford transmissions used on cars as well as well as TT's what is the shifting into neutral problem improper Teckneek or worn parts? Or possibly poor spelling.

Joe, the Warfords were used on cars as well as trucks.
The most common version , the six speed, was designed to be used on TTs, but were also used on cars.
The problem was not shifting into neutral, it was shifting out of neutral. Don't believe it was worn gears or improper shifting. It was the nature of the beast. From what I hear, the new Warfords don't suffer from that problem.

You sort of posted in the wrong area unless you want to purchase a Warford.

The old alum ones like Richard says have no issues shifting but they do just like an old standard tranny like to have the speed of the mating gear matched. This just means that you have to ease up the gas when down shifting and speed up the engine when down shifting. It's easy unless you haven't been driving your T enough. I get out of practice sometimes until about the second shift.
Jumping out of gear might be caused by some adjustment issues or damaged gear teeth. I've never had that happen. I Love mine... I've heard stories about how you have to be careful shifting the new ones so you don't get into underdrive at speed. They're to best new tranny available today.

If you're a Peterbilt driver, you will already be familiar with the shifting procedure Gene Describes. ;)

Sean, LOL... Hey, I try to hide from other drivers when I'm shifting mine but sometimes they can hear me! hee hee. I can tell ya that those gear teeth on the old alum ones are made of some darn Good Stuff!! I don't want them to think I driving a hot rod transmission.
