We look at how transmission works, why gears are needed, What is a manual transmission, gear train, compound gears, main parts, shaft, clutch, helical cut, Synchronizer sleeve, Synchronizer blocker ring, splines, Synchronizer hub, stick shift, gear stick, reverse gear and much more.

A manual transmission requires the driver to operate the gear stick and clutch in order to change gears. In a vehicle with a manual transmission, the flywheel is attached to the engine’s crankshaft, therefore rotating at engine speed. A clutch sits between the flywheel and the transmission input shaft, controlling whether the transmission is connected to the engine.


When the engine is running and the clutch is engaged (i.e., clutch pedal up), the flywheel spins the clutch plate and hence the transmission.The design of most manual transmissions for cars is that gear ratios are selected by locking selected gear pairs to the output shaft inside the transmission. //wikipedia
