Spinning Levers - How A Transmission Works (1936)

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 10 ก.ย. 2012
  • The transmission in the modern motorcar -- the mechanism that makes it possible to have three forward speeds and a reverse -- is a series of levers, levers that spin.

    I wonder if these guys knew in 1936 that over the next 100 years, no one would beat them in their explanation of how a manual transmission works.

    I'm starting to realise that I think the reason these old videos are so effective is that they explain everything simply from the ground up for people that wouldn't have had any idea what they were talking about unless they did.
    The transition from levers > lots of levers > gears/cogs makes a lot of sense and wasn't really a connection I made before today - I just knew the principle behind changing the gear sizes to get more or less power.

      It's because most people in the 1930s had basically no access to anything. These are like the 1930s version of TH-cam. But more basic because they needed to get straight to the point.

      It wouldn't surprise me if part of the reason for the clarity is the likelihood these reels may have been played in an academic setting - shop classes and the like. Beyond that, I am pretty sure that they were used as marketing to some degree, meant to be shown to the average Joe. "See, look at this modern marvel of mechanics! Amazing, isn't it? Look how convenient it is, and it's so simple. I bet you really want one, huh?"
      After all, automobiles hadn't been widely available and affordable for *that* long (all things considered), and the relative newness of the industry meant that new things were being introduced and it was important to communicate these things as plainly as possible for them to be understood and leveraged as a selling feature & ways to differentiate from competitors or previous models. Not much different than 'explainer' videos for products and technologies that companies put out now-a-days in purpose... they were just smart enough to make it ultra-easy to 'get'.

      @Commissary well by the way he has 40 likes and you don't even have 20 it looks like half to over half of everyone disagrees with you. So you're the stupid one and there's nothing you can do about it. With that out of the way it's always important to remember the words of the smartest among us.

      @Jason Bender i've studied physics in both Italy first and then the UK until 16, where i only had to study the subjects i picked for sixth form. not once in a physics lesson has a teacher told me "gears can be thought of as spinning levers".
      you can come to that conclusion by yourself if you understand torque, but that's one of the most complicated subjects of mechanics, which is why, as a way to dumb it down, the example of spinning levers is so effective.
      dumbing things down to have a more intuitive understanding of it is a good thing; you're taking a concept that someone finds difficult to understand, and you're turning it into a concept that feels like second nature.
      it isn't that people are all stupid or won't put in the effort; everyone's different and needs different examples and explanations to really understand something. quit downplaying the effort of people which are tens of times more studious than me (as an example), and yet still struggle with concepts which i got a grasp of in a few hours. everyone's trying.

      @Jason Bender but the video isn’t about flywheels, clutch pads, clutch joints, universal joints, ect. It’s about the basic inner workings of a transmission and the principles it uses.
      Also keep in mind this was recorded around the 1930s, transmissions will have changed a lot since then. Yet the video still does an excellent job explaining how it works 90 years later.
      (Also for the record, it DID talk about the reverse gear)

      @Jason Bender man, do you realize, that this shows how gearbox works? Not shifting. It shows why you can change gears and what exactly changes in the gearbox. Plus, if you watched carefully, you could've seen that they showed changing gears without clutch... Stop trying to insult everyone, when you're dumb too. 🙃

      That was your takeaway? Technology has not advanced all that much. Basic principles remain; they've just been enhanced. Electronics have developed, but they, too, are based on principles already known then. I would say it's amazing how advanced technology was 100 years ago, not the other way around.

    I think what makes this video so easy to understand and pertinent even to today is the fact that concepts are explained.
    We all know of the sinple machines and the lever being one is employed in our daily life. As complicated as a modern transmission is, breaking it down to simple levers of varying sizes and fulcrum points is almost mind blowing

    I love the explanation. It is sad to see that a lot of explanation videos are made to highlight the teacher rather than the content. The teacher, in order to come across as intelligent, uses a lot of jargon. It also works because a lot of comments under those videos praise how cool or smart the teacher is. The real teacher who cares about the learner gets out of the way of the explanation as much as possible and lets the content to shine.

    Great stuff!!!! We still use the same method today but the complexity has increased a hundred fold. In the 1960s an Apprentice became a motor mechanic after 4 years and he knew how to fix EVERYTHING on your car. But with today's automobiles you need a specialist mechanic for the motor, the gears, the exhaust, the electrics and electronics, etc., etc. No single mechanic can fix everything on a modern car.

    Old GM infomercials just hit different. They start simple by showing a simple concept ie. a lever and tell us briefly how it works before talking about the transmission itself. It allows people who may not fully understand how something works to know how each piece works in a complex machine. I’ve seen TH-cam videos posted by mechanics and engineers taking at least 20 minutes to discuss something and still leave us confused while this add tells us everything by being simple and clear in only under 10 minutes. With everything being so complex nowadays, using simple things like a cork into a bottle or a lever moving something heavy

      When I was a kid an uncle passed away and left me a small library of old books. History, literature, philosophy, natural science, etc. I always felt it was written clearly and efficiently. Later on when I went to college, I got the impression that anything written in the last 100 years or so seemed somehow degraded, mentally foggy, and confused, like IQs had fallen or something. Same goes for movies, talk shows and political debates. Then one day I saw the movie Idiocracy and it all made sense.

    these old videos have their unique charm and literally down to earth explanation of how things work, it goes to show how we take today's technology in vehicles for granted as they have advanced so much since then but the principal is still the same! Its so easy to explain something back then compared to today where you can get so technological with today's explanation but when you simplify something that even a 5 year old could understand it makes more sense!
    that is how i explain things to people on how things work, i simplify it so they can easily understand how things work.

      @Obeme more than you think, america and britian still use the imperial system in machining and tolerances. I have friends on both sides of the atlantic, all use the imperial system when machining and when refering to measurements. I have friends in Germany, the UK, Ukraine and here in the us. All can use it and will use it for say making bearing surfaces and using fasteners. 1/2, 3/4 inch and so on, quite a simple system that works well.

    What a pleasant learning video. Well produced, to the point and memorable. This simplicity really needs to be brought back. Lucky for us, they didn't have any available computers, or we wouldnt see the simple mechanisms purpose built for demonstrations. They also didnt have casting issues, where someone was complaining about not being fairly represented; it focused on the workings of the transmission first and foremost. I cant tell you who was in it, or how many people they showed, but I can now explain how a transmission works!

      I know thats basically a joke about my user/channel name, but I will explain anyway:
      I just like them, and they are getting rarer and rarer since almost everyone is moving to electric. There are only a few manufactures left out of the dozens there once where.
      "Large" scale I can only think of OS and Saito being left, both of them continually reducing their "nitro" portfolio and moving to petrol engines.
      Enya and Laser are still doing limited production runs for enthusiasts. Also there is Yamada with the high performance four-strokes.
      The whole complex of Magnum, ASP, SC and all the manufactures "house brands", which were all made by Sanye in China, is gone.
      But it's nowhere near the volume they once where, and I like them. So I grab them as long as I still can. The old ones from the 70s-90s tend to be of better manufacturing quality, too.

      yup. a (larger) wheel/gear driven by a smaller one is a (continuous) rotary Lever !!! the larger the radius of the driven wheel THE BETTER. because the result is MA that is Inherent, in a 'larger-radius' wheel. MA is mechanical advantage; lever arm. (these are some of the reasons why the radii of wind turbine rotors Never get smaller.) it can be SEEN that it is Simple/easy to convert reduction-MA to Inherent MA. this is the WELL-understood principle of converting 'high rotation rate to torque'. thanks to some ancient dude, humans have developed a GIANT blindspot, regarding the existence of a transient/intermediate, potential energy GAIN in the transform. if interested, see my research. cheers googletranslate

    I've watched this video about 4 times now, and I can't seem to wrap my head around that speed cork-in-bottle clutch thing. I wish they dived a bit deeper in how it worked. Besides that, I love this explanation so much.

    • Noname
      Noname หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      Clutches are considered disposable and a part expected to wear out because they operate using friction. The other comment is a good explanation of how it works but I thought it prudent to add this to it.
      A clutch is basically a part designed to wear out over time sitting between two parts you should never have to replace. When people speak of "burning up" a clutch they're talking about it wearing prematurely. Usually as the result of an operator that rests his foot on the clutch pedal at all times. Thus causing the clutch to be partially engaged at all times. Since constant friction is a great source of generating heat it isn't long before all you're left with is a funny smell and no more clutch material.
      Cork is a good example material. Rubber or any other soft material would also be a good example of explaining how the clutch works. Think about it like this. Imagine you have a gear made of something soft like cork. It connects two other gears made of a harder material like metal. It is partially engaging both metal gears and sacrificing itself anytime the two metal gears are not in sync. When engaged it's always between the two metal gears and when disengaged it's tucked somewhere out of the way and not involved in delivering power at all. Hence the video's "cork in a bottle neck" example. Our cork gear can freely slide between and out of the way of our 2 metal gears whenever we want. We can control how much or little it's engaging with the metal gears.
      Let's suppose your two metal gears are not in sync. Gear #1 is spinning at 8,000rpm while Gear #2 is spinning at 2,000rpm. You want to match the speed between both metal gears before attempting to fully engage them. We can not force them together because they're too far out of sync. If there was no clutch you'd be forced to slow Gear #1 down to 2,000rpm before engaging with Gear #2.
      With the clutch we get another option: We can slowly bring the speed of Gear #2 up to 8,000rpm through partial engagement via the cork's friction. A little bit of cork will be sacrificed and lost to friction every time we do it. Once Gear #1 and Gear #2 are both spinning at 8,000rpm our cork gear is disengaged. It gets out of the way of the two metal gears allowing them to fully mesh up and spin at the same rpm. Our soft cork gear is tucked somewhere out of the way until it's needed again. Giving it a chance to cool down and saving the precious soft material for the next time our metal gears are out of sync with each other. Or if we feel the need to do other fun things like engine braking or upsetting the balance so we can deliver tofu faster.
      Also I should point out that those rpm numbers are just examples. IRL what would happen is Gear #1 would drop from 8,000rpm to about 6,000rpm while Gear #2 was coming up to speed. When both gears were at about 6,000rpm they would engage with each other because they were now in sync. Gear #1 is being robbed of power by the clutch's friction and bring Gear #2 up to speed. Gear #2 would be spinning freely in this example and not generating any power on it's own. At any rate both gears would meet somewhere in the middle, sync/engage then the clutch would get out of the way.
      "Floating" gears is simply matching engine speed to wheel speed (Gear #1 to Gear #2) and engaging the gears together without use of a clutch. In a lot of professional driving jobs (racing and trucking) the clutch is only really used for starting from a stand still. It's easier and faster to match engine and wheel speed manually. The smoothest possible/optimal shift point is always when both of these things are in sync. There are other benefits as well. Left foot braking for example.
      Just think of the clutch as an oddly shaped gear made out of softer material than all the others. I feel like I've rambled on too much. If you still don't understand it and I suggest learning how motorcycle/ATV/small engine transmissions work. They are easier to wrap your mind around than automotive transmissions.

    • staggerbag
      staggerbag 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

      It's the increasing friction due to the cone shape of the cork. When you just barely put the cork into the bottle, it very easily spins because there is little friction between it and the neck of the bottle. When you start putting the cork deeper inside, you're going down that cone shape and increasing the diameter of the cork that touches the neck of the bottle. In essence, you're reducing the air gap between the surface of the cork and the neck of the bottle and by doing so, you're increasing the friction. You do this until the friction is so high that you can't freely move the cork.
      The same thing happens with the synchromesh mechanism. You can see the synchronizer at 7:40 also has a cone shape, the circumference of the left side is bigger than the circumference of the right side. Initially the 2 gears/shafts are spinning at different rates but when you move the synchronizer from one gear into the other gear, you are gradually pushing that cone into a tighter gap and increasing the friction between them, until the friction is high enough that they are basically "locked" together and spinning at the same rate. This gradual increase in friction is what lets you change the gears more smoothly.

      @deezel_fairy it's more that these types of things have become so specialized that most people don't understand them. These older manuals and videos were designed for the layman back when education wasn't readily available or common. There were even PSA's made by the US army around this time that told people they needed to wash with soap because many of their soldiers didn't. So it's not that the artform of making these things has been lost, it's just that the technology discussed is so much more advanced now, and information is easily obtained now, that they don't expect someone to watch the video, or read the manual, unless they already have some sort of prior knowledge or education in the subject. It kind of sucks, but are you gonna spend money on making a video for everyone to understand and maybe not get the whole point across and take up time, or make it for the people with an education in the subject who need all the info in the shortest time possible? I know which choice a company will make.

    Now I understand this gear thing... This video made it very plain and simple to comprehend using Archimede's lever at the beginning!

    They should use this to teach driving. Especially those demo props with the exposed transmission. It really helps learning when you know whata going on when doing what. I remember learning to drive manual the first time and was just so confused, to my understanding I just had to feel it or with practice you eventually get the hang of it. Something so visual can really help you understand it better and have more confident in what you are doing as you are learning.

    2:00 amazing how they made that without CGI, the power of fisically cutting every individual frame of the film is crazy.

    This was great 👍.
    Seeing what is going on in the transmission gives some understanding.

    Some of the best films on learning how to fly an airplane I have ever seen comes from ww2 military training films . Just like this film they made complicated , easy to understand .

    It seems the clutch sleeve is linked to the load shaft that turns rear wheel, it can't spin over the shaft but must turn with it and is able to slide back and forth, thus making the right shaft to the wheel as 'powered.' Since that first gear on driven shaft at 3:30 spins over the shaft, the only way it can get things to happen is that the clutch
    sleeve is engaged in it, now that gear is turning and has power and
    since it is linked to clutch sleeve which is keyed to the shaft, the shaft
    is powered. in 3rd gear the clutch sleeve is allowed to slip to the left
    and directly into gear on the engine shaft. making a 1 to 1 coupling
    with no increase or decrease of torque. I am not a wrencher but it
    seems that once clutch sleeve gears meshed with countershaft there would have to be a keyed or spleened shaft to the clutch sleeve.
