Boy, if I had a lazy 50 odd grand I'd be on that like a blowfly on the proverbial!
All that and TWO sticks!

I'm a BIG newbie navigating this forum, and I'm not sure just how things work, so it's simpler for me to give a big group thank you to everyone who has commented.
To Dave_64 (nice name by the way), remember that two sticks are not necessarily better than one. Especially if you're doing it all day, as my father did. Must have been exhausting. Just taking the old girl out on the road for a look around keeps you really, really busy. An extra arm or two would help.
To Mrsmackpaul, or anyone who knows anyone interested, please share.
I don't expect to sell her overnight, so I'm not putting her in Just Trucks until the trail runs cold on this forum.
BTW, I forgot that also included are 2 pair of extended leaf springs for Hendrickson RTE suspensions.
Don't know if the #3 hangers are still available though.
Thanks again, and "Keep on Truckin . . ."

Twin sticks are no problem, after a while it’s second nature and you don’t even think about it. Just like turning your blinkers on. You don’t even realise your doing it. Gives me a bit of a chuckle though when I see videos of people doing twin sticks when they only use one hand and doing the change in 2 movements. It’s better using both hands and do both shifts almost at the same time. Much quicker and more clean shift.

Overnight,
I'm with you on the twin stickers, first job when came out of the army was on the coal at Burragorang.
Bloke who got me the job always used to say, " If you miss one, go around the corner and grab another one!"
Believe me, I lost plenty!
Best thing I found after cresting a decent hill and running off the other side, drop 4 gears by simply moving the main up one!
I love them
