In this system, the driver must select gears manually by operating the gear stick and clutch. The basic function of the transmission is to control the speed and torque of the vehicle in different driving conditions.Basically, the manual transmission works on the principle of gear ratio. Watch the video from Animagraffs:

The gear ratio is the ratio of the number of turns made by the output shaft to the number of turns the input shaft makes once.A manual transmission requires the driver to operate the gear stick and clutch in order to change gearsWhen the clutch pedal is released, the thrust bearing is withdrawn and the diaphragm-spring load once again clamps the driven plate to the flywheel to resume the transmission of power.


Clutches connect and disconnect two rotating shafts drive shafts or line shafts. In these devices, one shaft is typically attached to an engine or other power unit the driving member, while the other shaft (the driven member) provides output power for work.
