yea just curious cuz its on the coloum..wondered if u pushed it away from u for certain gears or pulled towards u 4 others. i don't plan to keep it 3 on the tree. i plan to put it as an auto but until i have the money to do that i wanna make sure i'll be able to drive it. I know how to drive stick so i hope it won't be too diff. I just wonder how stiff the clutch will be

Its the same thing as shifting on the floor only the shifter is turned sideways.

On a 3 speed on the tree, you pull torwards you and push up for reverse. For first gear you pull torwards you and push down, 1st is right under reverse. For second you push it up and forward, then 3rd you just keep it pushed forward and pull it straight down.

Like I said before its the same as on the floor for a 3 speed, same H pattern only its turned sideways.
