8. Transmissions

8.1. A mechanical transmission

The transmission is placed in картере from an aluminium alloy and attached to the left end of the engine. It consists of a transmission, the main transfer and differential. On all models, except the diesel engine of 2.1 litres, transmission ВЕ3 is established, and on the diesel engine of 2.1 litres transmission ML5T is established. Both types of a transmission are similar and work as follows.

The twisting moment from коленвала the engine is transferred through coupling to a primary shaft of a transmission on which the coupling disk is established. The primary shaft is established on ball bearings. Further the twisting moment is transferred to the secondary shaft which right end is established on the roller bearing, and left on the ball. From a secondary shaft the twisting moment is transferred to differential and to power shafts. In neutral position a primary shaft and gear wheels of a secondary shaft rotate freely and do not transfer a twisting moment to differential.

The gear change mechanism is put in action by the lever located on a floor of the car, by means of a switching rod on transmission ВЕ3 or a cable on transmission ML5T. The gear change mechanism moves a corresponding plug which moves the synchronizer and provides rigid connection of a gear wheel of a secondary shaft with secondary shaft.
