I need a gearbox

Hello all; I figure if anybody could help me with this, it would be here. I need a simple gearbox to connect a 8hp horizontal shaft gas engine to a propeller shaft, for installation in an 18ft crabbing skiff. I dont think I need any step down or up gears, just forward, neutral and reverse. Again, simplicity is the key. Any lawn tractor or riding mower I have looked at typically have the geabox/trans incorporated into the rear axle, and I don't want all those belts running around my bare feet. Any body got any ideas? Thanks- NHSHARPIE57@YAHOO.com

Why has my 2001 toyota manual transmission become hard to shift into 3rd and 4th?

It is a 5 speed. 1st, 2nd, and 5th shift normally. It feels like 3rd and 4th are going into gear shallow; some times they will pop out imediately after engaging. This condition just started.

Infinitely Variable Transmission?

Ok, so I have been looking at this thing called the D-drive and it inspired me to come up with my own IVT design which was solid gears for max torque handling and still could change speed and direction easily and smoothly. This is what I came up with and I would like to hear your opinions on it.  It starts with input to a differential, one side of which is inverted and the other isn't before returning to a second reverse powered differential.  The two sides are slowed using a fluid braking system which has a rotor powered by the side's drive-line, and a flow limiting valve to apply resistance.  As one side slows the other accelerates.  When there is no brake power on either side you have reached a powered neutral, and when the second side is braked the direction changes and accelerates. So, will it work? How practical is it? Are you going to say it sucks, then steal my idea?

Is it really OK to shift into neutral when coasting downhill? Answered

I drive a 92' Dodge Dynasty with an automatic 4 speed transmission. I've read in almost every "fuel saving" instuctable that if you shift into neutral while going downhill, it'll save gas. I told my dad this, excited at the prospect of getting better mileage, and he said that when in neutral, the transmission fluid doesn't circulate in the transmission and it's like the worst possible thing to do. Dad's worked on cars forever, but he learned to work on older ones. I think maybe what he's saying applies to older transmissions or something. Basically, I figure that if it really will cause damage, someone else would have spoken up by now in comments or something. So, please, settle my nerves. I love my car and don't wanna damage it, but I also want better mileage. Is my dad right or is it safe to shift into neutral?

Automatic transmission "lever" broke off ('03 Ford Explorer).. Help?

Okay, so here's the rundown. I drive an old '03 Ford Explorer. Seeing as I'm 16 and yet live in the humble abode of my parents, I get the chance to share a driveway (and oh what an experience!). One day, I park behind my mother's vehicle, and she needed to get out. I was out with a friend at the time, so she decides to attempt to move it herself -- without the keys. She attempts to jam the car into neutral to roll it out, and lo and behold, the lever for the transmission breaks! I'm in absence of the ability to tow, nor have I had time to call a local mechanic for an estimate. Albeit it's an older car, but I'd love to have it repaired. The lever itself is hanging from a couple cords, and I do have a spare wheel that I can have installed, so I decided to come here with my question. Does anybody have a clue on what I should do, and if possible, a bottom-line price that they could shoot over? Anything will help.. Thanks! (Images will be added VERY soon.)

I'd be glad if anyone could help me out with finding circuit diagrams, kit sets and even links of online resources. I'm fine with the actual building of the hull and superstructure, it's just everything electronic I am having difficulty figuring out. Definite specs: - 2 metres long by 40ish cm wide (6ft by 16 inches I think) - Single hull - Radio controlled, with a 600ft/ 200m transmission range Planned specs: - Preferably two motors (electric) with speed control, as I think one may not be powerful enough to push such a big craft - Servo/stepper motor rudder - Two side thrusters towards the front, one each side (no speed control necessary) - One bow-facing 'turret' with a small wireless camera on - One fixed stern-facing wireless camera - Port and starboard LEDs (on/off switchable) - At least 9 other channels available for other additions required on/off switching such as spotlights and suchlike - 2 more channels for additional servos The actual boat design at this point in time is modular, meaning that one can mix and match features such as turrets or spotlights in the four bays that are available

How can I convert a transmissive to a reflective LCD screen?

Hello everyone, So basically a reflective LCD screen is one that has no backlight, and reflects ambient light off a type of mirror reflector, to allow the image on the LCD to be seen via reflection. An example of a reflective LCD screen is the Gameboy Advance's LCD screen. A transmissive LCD is one that has a backlight that transmits light, but does not reflect light. These are typically 99.99% of the screens out there, such as PC Monitors, Smartphone screens, etc... Now I would like to know how to turn a Transmissive LCD screen, into a Reflective screen, like the GBA screen, without the need for a backlight. The reason I ask this is because I need it for outdoor use (to be sunlight readable), and backlights can't compete with the sun, and having a strong backlight drains battery. I have done a lot of research on this, but can't wrap my head around how the GBA screen works. I have removed the backlight off my computer LCD screen, and added a reflective film beneath the rear polarizer on the LCD screen, but it obviously doesn't make it reflective. I'm obviously missing a crucial step. Is the reflective film in the GBA, 'sandwhiched' somewhere in between the actual LCD screen?

1992 Toyota Paseo (5-speed manual transmission) with difficulty shifting into 1st, 2nd, 5th & reverse?

I have a 1992 Toyota Paseo that's recently started shifting hard into all gears except 3rd & 4th.  We've tried it even when the car's off and it's still having difficulty, so it doesn't seem like it would have anything to do with the clutch.  Weirdly, it doesn't seem to do it all the time. It almost seems like it does it right after it's rained. When it's being difficult, the hardest to shift into is definitely reverse, although 5th isn't always a picnic either. 1st and 2nd are a little tough, but not that bad. 3rd and 4th are smooth as butter. Is it possible for the shift assembly box (or whatever it's technically called) to have some sort of difficulty that could be causing it to stick or be held back in some way? My boyfriend is a mechanic (although he hasn't been able to take it in yet) and he doesn't think it's the transmission, but he's not all that familiar with manual transmission cars. It's got about 160,000 miles on it. Any thoughts?

Wireless Power Transmission

Nikola Tesla's grandest vision was the transmission of large amounts of power without wires. His work in this area was abandoned by his contemporaries, and there is still much debate over if it could or could not work. I would like to hear your opinions on this. Do you think it is possible? Would it require only one transmitter, or several, spread across the globe? Would it be safe? Would it be worthwhile? Could Tesla's original spark gap circuit been sufficient to drive it? Or would it be better to use vacuum tubes or solid state setups? Would the operating frequency be very high or very low? Pictured below is how I think Tesla may have done it, based on the information I've seen. It's a bit over-simplified, but to the best of my knowledge, it covers most of what is needed. Please note that, although the transmitter terminals would be at a much higher elevation than pictured, the receiving terminals could stay at a relatively low elevation. This link is to a YouTube video of someone using a small Solid-State Tesla Coil for wireless power transmission: www.youtube.com/watch Edit: I had orriginally imagined that the system would work by capacitive coupling between the Ionosphere and the coils. Afterwards I realized that electrostatic capacitive coupling will decouple after seperation between two plates is greater than 1/2 the wavelength (or, at least in theory), so I personally abandoned the idea. The only problem is that I can't imagine how power would be sent to airplanes. Also, this is a very good read on the subject, from a very interesting site: www.teslaradio.com/pages/wireless_102.htm
