It is an object of lmy-invention to provide an
improved transmission which is of such con
struction that a suitable number of speed ratios
for driving an automotive vehicle may be ob
tained with a minimum amount of gearing.
It'is another object of my invention to provide
an improved transmission which may be easily
controlled for changing the speed ratio through
the transmission.
,
It is a further object of my invention to pro
vide an improved transmission having low and
intermediate speed >ratios in which, at the will
of the operator, the driven shaft may either free
wheel with respect to the drive shaft or in which
the two shafts may .be positively connected. It
