i was wondering on my 76 its a manual shift but i dont need the clutch for shifting i only need it for take off. i found out by mistake stupid me forgot to push in the clutch from 2nd to 3rd and it was so smooth i was wondering if it will hurt my baby or not, then i was also thinking something might be worn out....... if anyone can help thanks TOM

DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!   VW transmissions are NOT meant to "speed shift" ie... shifting without the clutch. It may work a few times, but pretty soon you will start having the gears grind and then it WILL get a little worse... And after awhile it will grind even with the clutch... And then it will start to pop out of gear. I speak from experience on this you will NOT be happy!  BAD BAD BAD BAD... Did I say BAD!
