Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A close-ratio transmission is a transmission in which there is little difference between the gear ratios of the gears. Consequently, note that the word close implies "near," not "shut." The gear ratio numbers are in a smaller numeric range, hence closer together. In the context of close-ratio transmissions, a transmission with large differences between gears is termed "wide-ratio." Close-ratio and wide-ratio are relative terms, with no standardization. Therefore, a transmission that a manufacturer terms close-ratio when paired with a V8 engine with a wide power band may be termed wide-ratio when paired with a high-revving straight-4.show more
