No it did not "shutter" but at the slightest accelaration in 5th or 6th gear it would drop 1 or 2 gears and them sometimes hunt for a gear back and forth. To get it to up shift back up would have to cruise steady or even let off the throttle and coast a bit so it would up shift. When it got real bad it would not up shift to 6th unless I got it up to 80mph then let off the throttle.
Remember not to talk bad about farmers with your mouth full!
