A Reverse Shaft is the shaft which rotates in the opposite direction of the engine driver shaft with the help of meshing of gears mounted on it to the gears mounted on engine driver shaft when reverse gear is applied.

The reverse shaft allows the vehicle to move in reverse direction.

Which unit is a sector shaft a part of?

The sector shaft is the secondary or indirectly driven shaft in a manual transmission. It typically houses the "driven" gears along with reverse, although newer transmissions place reverse on its own shaft.

What does it mean when the transmission clicks while it is in reverse?

It could be as simple as a slight imperfection in one of the gears or it could be an indication that the drive shaft or "half shaft" is worn.

1999 Chevy asto van it wont go in reverse or second gear what could cause this?

Can't remember if mine would go into second, but I did have an issue with not going into reverse. The reverse gear shaft/hub was fractured inside the transmission. Had to do a complete rebuild. GM, upgraded the shaft to strenghten this because of this failure. Hope this helps, Mark

What is the differences of direct acting actuator and reverse acting actuator?

When a pressure signal is applied, the valve shaft moves in the direction opposite that of the direct-acting actuator, but it follows the same operating principle. In the reverse-acting actuator, the valve shaft is pulled into the actuator by the application of a pressure control signal.

What causes a manual transmission to grind in reverse on a 1987 gmc S10 5speed?

Bad synchronizer.AnswerI have an '86 S10. When it will not go into reverse or grinds going into reverse, it helps to put it in 2nd then reverse. AnswerMost manual transmissions do not have a sychronized reverse gear. When you try to go into reverse from neutral, the transmission countershaft (which is linked to the pilot shaft) is still turning. The main shaft (which is linked to the tailshaft) is not turning. Therefore, since there is no sychronizer (or clutch brake like on a heavy truck tranny) the sliding cluctch gear (splined to the main shaft) grinds against the main shaft gear (floating over the main shaft but meshing its respecive countershaft gear through the reverse idler). The slider's function is to lock the main shaft gear to the main shaft thereby transmitting power to the rear wheels in the desired gear ratio (depending on which main shaft gear is locked to the main shaft). The way to cure this is to select a forward gear to stop the transmission and then go to reverse, all the while holding the clutch down. If it still won't go into gear you can either slip the clutch ever so slightly to "bump" the gears while gently pushing the stick into reverse (not too hard!! you can bend or break forks!! OUCH!!) or go into neutral, let the clutch all the way out, go into a forward gear and then reverse. If you think manual trannies are complicated, have someone explain an automatic to you!!!! AnswerThe comment above about the lack of syncros(sp) on reverse is correct, however one cause of grinding when shifting into reverse is improper adjustment of the clutch linkage. If the adjustment is correct when the clutch is depressed the gears should stop turning and eliminate the grinding. Make sure there is some free play in the linkage when the clutch is not depressed. Like everyone has stated, syncros, putting in first before reverse and all that, they may be correct. But please save yourself time and money and check the simple things first, is your clutch fluid low? matter fact if it is not at the maximum line, you should put some in it. it takes break fluid in case you didnt know, and if it can be fixed with 2 dollars of break fluid, it beats the hell out of a new clutch or transmition
