New Drive Lines For New Engines 570007

THE selection of transmissions for trucks, with particular emphasis on how they affect the performance of the vehicle, is covered in this paper—the L. Ray Buckendale Lecture for 1956.
The author also appraises, briefly, the automatic transmission for truck use.
He foresees early progress in this direction for short haul, city, and off-highway units, where shifting and clutch problems are most acute. He expects, however, that it will be some time before they are adopted for highway freight vehicles.
