How Does a Gear Selector Work?

Gear selector cable access to car

In a gear box, the power coming from the engine’s flywheel connects to the crankshaft using one of the gears held by the gear selector forks. When the clutch pedal is pushed, the gear pulls away from the flywheel and crankshaft. The shift lever is pressed forward, making the racketing drum to turn around. Because the grooves cut into the drum are rough, this causes the three gear selector forks to change location, two pull backside while a third moves forward to sit between the crankshaft and the flywheel. The current gear connects with the crankshaft and the flywheel after the clutch pedal is free, returning power to the drive axle, which turns the car’s tires.
