How do you drive a non-synchromesh gearbox?

The technique for driving a vehicle fitted a non-sychromesh is to match the engine speed to the transmission speed by raising or lowering the engine speed.

The technique to change up is this:

  1. Depress clutch (not all the way to the floor, just enough to disengage)
  2. Move gearstick into neutral position
  3. Release clutch
  4. Depress the clutch once the engine has slowed the appropriate amount
  5. Move the gearstick into the higher gear.

The number of revolutions per minute to reduce depends on the normal gap between the gears (usually 600 to 800 rpm), whether the vehicle is speeding up or slowing down

The technique to downshift is

  1. Depress cluch
  2. Move gearstick into neutral position
  3. Release clutch
  4. Increase the engine speed by the appropriate amount
  5. Depress clutch
  6. Move gearstick into the lower gear

Again, the amount to increase depends on the transmission and vehicle acceleration.

There is no real substitute for practice.

If the speeds are not matched, the gears cannot engage, no matter how hard the gearstick is pushed.

If the gear does not engage, then the engine speed needs to be adjusted. Generally a high pitched grind indicates the engine is too fast, and a lower pitched grind indicates the engine is too slow.

If the gear cannot be engaged, the vehicle needs to be stopped as it is very dangerous to let a vehicle coast in neutral while the driver is hunting for a gear.

Why do you use octane in vehicles?

Octane is a measurement of the combustion process. Most commonly you will see "85 87 91" octane ratings on your average gasoline pump, this of course indicates the amount of octane that, that specific product contains.

The only purpose of octane is to resist detonation. What this means is that a higher octane gasoline is actually more stable than a lower rated fuel. When any kind of fuel is subject to high pressure and high heat (just like you'll find on the compression stroke of an average automobile) it becomes unstable and in some cases will spontaneously combust without an ignition source, this is called "detonation" which will make your engine sound like it's "knocking". Vehicles requiring a high octane fuel most often have engines with higher compression ratios which of course cause higher heat and higher pressures. Most common vehicles only require an octane rating of 85, octane ratings of 87 and 91 won't make your car run any better.

What is a Bolt for a girder?

A bolt for a girder is a bolt that is cast in place with the cap. Therefore the bolt is concreted into the cap of the substructure of the bridge. The girder is then set on top of bearing pads, on top of the cap, in between the girder bolts. The bolts are there to keep the ends of the girders from moving side to side.
