The center spline on the clutch disc is attached to the?
the center spline of a clutch is the base plate for which the clutch is made. You have a disk usually from 7" to 14" made from treated steel then the clutch material is rivited to the plate / with or without addhesive. Your clutch is a floating disk on the splined input shaft of the transmission, and rides between the flywheel and the presure plate.There is a throwout bearing on the input shaft as well. Your throwout bearing is attached to the motion of your clutch pedal through a forked arm either through hydrolics or simple mechanical leverage setup.

How do you drive a synchromesh gear?
Synchromesh is what's also know as "granny shifting". When you're ready to change a gear, you push in the clutch, push the shifter into the next gear, and let off the clutch. If you're in a heavy duty truck equipped with such a transmission (such as the Volvo with their 14 speed synchromesh transmission), DO NOT try floating these - the synchronizer gears are very sensitive, and you WILL wreck that transmission. Additionally, you only want to push down far enough to allow the shifter to disengage - as with an unsynchronized transmission, pushing the clutch all the way to the floor will engage the clutch brake, eventually causing it to burn out.
