Used gearboxes in South Africa

What is the job of a Gearbox?

An automobile requires high torque when climbing hills and when starting, even though they are performed at low speeds. When running at high speeds on level roads, high torque is not required because of momentum. So requirement of a device is needed, which can change the vehicle’s torque and its speed according to road condition or when the driver needs. This device is known as a gearbox.

     Function of transmission box (gear box) in automobile:


  1. Provide the torque needed to move the vehicle under a variety of road and load conditions. It does this by changing the gear ratio between the engine crankshaft and vehicle drive wheels.
  2. Be shifted into reverse so the vehicle can move backward.
  3. Be shifted into neutral for starting the engine.
