Re: Ron Best
Hi, you normally use the D1 next to the low, that way it starts off in first gear.
D2 (next to neutral) starts off in 2nd gear and use for starting in snow conditions.
Starting off in D2 is a little tougher on the bands, so better to use D1 all or most the time. Good idea to maybe get yourself a owners manual and shop manual, usually can get them on ebay....go to parts and accessories and then narrow it down to 63 Ford.
