Three hydraulically applied input clutches are used to drive planetary components. The underdrive, overdrive, and reverse clutches are considered input clutches and are contained within the input clutch assembly . The input clutch assembly also contains:

  • Input shaft
  • Input hub
  • Clutch retainer
  • Underdrive piston
  • Overdrive/reverse piston
  • Overdrive hub
  • Underdrive hub

OPERATION

The three input clutches are responsible for driving different components of the planetary geartrain.

NOTE: Refer to ELEMENTS IN USE AT EACH POSITION OF SELECTOR LEVER for a collective view of which clutch elements are applied at each position of the selector lever.

UNDERDRIVE CLUTCH

The underdrive clutch is hydraulically applied in first, second, and third (direct) gears by pressurized fluid against the underdrive piston. When the underdrive clutch is applied, the underdrive hub drives the rear sun gear.

OVERDRIVE CLUTCH

The overdrive clutch is hydraulically applied in third (direct) and overdrive gears by pressurized fluid against the overdrive/reverse piston. When the overdrive clutch is applied, the overdrive hub drives the front planet carrier.

REVERSE CLUTCH

The reverse clutch is hydraulically applied in reverse gear only by pressurized fluid against the overdrive/reverse piston. When the reverse clutch is applied, the front sun gear assembly is driven.
