10. Transmissions and power shafts

10.1. Mechanical transmission


The transmission is placed in a case from an aluminum alloy and attached to the left end face of the engine. It consists of a transmission, the main transfer and differential.

The torque from a cranked shaft of the engine is transferred through coupling to primary shaft of a transmission on which the coupling disk is established. From a secondary shaft the torque is transferred to differential and to power shafts.

In neutral situation primary shaft and gear wheels of a secondary shaft rotate freely and do not transfer a torque to differential.

The mechanism of gear shifting is put in action by the lever located on a floor of the car, by means of a switching rod. The mechanism of gear shifting moves the corresponding fork which moves the synchronizer and provides rigid connection of a gear wheel of a secondary shaft with secondary shaft.

Elements are located a heel of transfer under a cover in a transmission end face.

The reverse gear joins at the expense of gearing of an intermediate gear wheel with two pryamozuby gear wheels established on primary and secondary shaft of a transmission.

In a transmission kosozuby gear wheels that reduces level of noise are used and increases wear resistance.
