Working of a Manual transmission is explained in an illustrative and logical manner in this video with the help of animation. Here the working of Sliding mesh and synchromesh transmissions are well illustrated. This video also explains the working of a reverse gear.

      Are you sure this is how the manual transmission work or you just come up with turning gears and switching shafts? I’m sure my 1983 Vanagon is not that complicated.

      I have always understood basically the general mechanism of the transmission and gears shifting.
      This is by far the most simple explanation I have watched, so far.
      The automatic transmission that is a different story. I have watched some videos explaining it, but I can't even start to explain it myself even if my life depended on it.

      Some things aren't really clear to me.

      The first question is: How are the gears prevented to move axially on the driven shaft?
      In the video it is stated that these gears can spin freely but it isn't exactly explained how this is done. Is there a bearing between the gear and the shaft? And would the same bearing also prevent axial displacement? For example a double row tapered roller bearing.

      Second question: How is the synchronization ring attached to the shaft? My guess would be since axial movement of the synch ring must be allowed to press it against the conical gear face and a speed mismatch between hub and synch ring has to be avoided. That the solution is a keyed shaft coupling? But then again when the sleeve moves to another gear, the sync ring will initially stay connected to the gear cone. Don't the gear cone and sync ring surfaces slip a lot due to new speed mismatch? Is there some sort of mechanism to disconnect them?

      Insight is appreciated! Thanks in advance.

      It's amazing work but I think there need to be correction. At 00:54 Torque x Speed = Power -> Force x Speed = Power. Thanks for this beautiful footage.

      what about 1st gear? is it synchronised? if so, why is prohibited to shift 1st gear during riding?

      The gearbox per-se won't mind, other than the massive speed/torque differentials you just pushed through the drive train, 1st is so low anyway its pretty useless other than starting from stationary or 'very' low speed in traffic.
      Depends on the gearbox as to whether there is sync or not. (my opinion only)

      wowwww i just learned why my 87 f150 grinds everytime going into reverse when I dont slide it into another gear (1st, 2nd, 3rd) before going into reverse!

      Now I'm more confused than before I watched the video. If you come out with one on automatics I am not going to watch.
