7.2. Mechanical transmission
The transmission is placed in a case from aluminum alloy and attached to the left end of the engine. It consists of the transmission, the main transfer and differential.
The torque from a bent shaft of the engine is transmitted through coupling to a main shaft of the transmission on which the clutch plate is established. A forward part of a main shaft is established on the roller bearing, and a back part – on the ball tight bearing. From a secondary shaft the torque is transferred to differential and to power shafts.
In neutral situation the main shaft and gear wheels of a secondary shaft rotate freely and do not transfer torque to differential.
The mechanism of gear shifting is put in action by the lever located on a car floor 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 a secondary shaft.
