re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
YouTube is amazing. My dad (he's 77) told me that if he had YouTube when he was younger, he would have taken over the world.

The very first car I learned how to drive had a clutch. 3-on-the-tree.

I actually thought it was really cool. It reminds me of the gigantic cutaway displays of diesel engines I saw at a Workboat Expo. My tiny female brain loves seeing how things work.

Youtube has become the world's largest encyclopedia and how to manual. I love it.

i have tackled vehicle repairs, electrical projects and appliance repairs i would never have DREAMED OF 20 years ago.

its insane how easy some of these repairs are that you'd pay a shop $1,500 to do.

re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
Something about this in gif format with jerky start/end makes it hard to follow.

ETA - To be clear, I learned to drive a 84 Ford Bronco and have a general idea of how a manual transmission works, but I find myself distracted with the gif alone.

Work filters won't allow YouTube. I'm sure it makes sense in that context. I'll check it out on mobile.

ETA - Right side drive.

video is great. shows how the tranny is released when you push the clutch in, how the gears shift (and the torque sweet-spot for each) and how to use the clutch on an incline.

unfortunately it doesn't show the technique we have to use here in TN for getting started on a 20%+ grade..you gotta set the ebrake while engaging the clutch or you will burn it up.

Hell, 2/3 of the posters here can't drive clutch.

I can but my bitch arse still stalls out on the occasional uphill stop.

Nothing wrong with that. I hate car payments and full coverage insurance, so I run mine till they die.
