- n. A subsidiary transmission shaft
Sorry, no etymologies found.
On the layshaft are a number of gears, one is permanently connected to the gear on the driveshaft, the other gears are on the other end of the layshaft, and are all different sizes.
The pilot valve F receives a constant reciprocating motion from the eccentric upon the layshaft of the turbine through the lever F
Ford/GETRAG joint venture, essentially consists of two layshaft transmissions working in parallel, each with its own wet-clutch unit.
These gears are connected to inversely sized gears on a differential (if the layshaft gear is big, then the gear on the differential is small).
Often, the lower the gear, the smaller the gear on the layshaft is.
That gear is then connected to a gear on the end of what is known as a layshaft.
The only one that isn't inverted is the reverse gear, who has two equal sized gears, and an inverter gear inbetween them to turn the layshaft and the driveshaft in opposite directions.
