Kerst, the first car of my father was a BMW Dixi and this car had conical shaped leather clutches, too. So leather is a real good choice for clutch surfaces on a scale model power shift. Thanks also for sharing the drawings of the Clark power shift. Wonderful craftmanship!

Cheers,
Max

Thanks for the compliments!
I am in self-imposed isolation in my workshop, so lots of time to work on the Clark transmission.
Here a few pictures of progress. i worked on the clutch assemblies today, still not finished though. Lots of little parts.





I will connect the input shaft (top middle ) with a flexible coupling to the motor with reduction case.
The output shaft (bottom middle gets a bolt-on divider to go to both rear axles.

Incredible work Kerst! An interesting Clark note: They were located not far from me in Buchanan, Michigan. They had a testing facility that lives to this day as Clark Testing. I was there just the other day on a work project. Some very large test equipment including many dynamometers for testing these very gear boxes. So if you need to have this one tested, let me know and I'll hook you up!

Keep the pics coming, this is a fascinating build!

Due to the crisis I have lots of time for the gearbox. It slowly comes together. I finalized the input and output sides. I hadn't thought about these at all when I started building the gearbox, so some adjustments needed to be made.
I also had to adapt the whole assembly so it would fit in the truck!





Next are the levers to control the shifting. See how that works out!!
