We had a 1972 C50 with the vacuum shift rear axle (6.50/8.85) I wouldn't worry about going from lo 4th to lo 1st. You are going to have to slow way down for it to even go in that gear. Second do you know how to split shift? It doesn't shift like a road ranger, you don't run through 4 pull the switch and then run through 4 again. To tell if you are in hi or low just look at the position of the switch. Up is hi, down is low. Easiest way to tell if it is working is to try to use it, if you don't really know what you are doing it will find neutral eventually and it will free rev. Another way to tell is to put a tachometer in it and get another vehicle to lead you (because of the speedometer shifting that just gets messy to use the one in the dash). Have them go a set speed and look at your tach, then try to shift the rear and go the same speed, RPM change on the engine means your rear is working.
