History 

 

The engine output torque was transmitted and amplified by the torque converter to the transmission. The torque converter was equipped with free wheel stator and lock-up. At certain speeds and load conditions the hydraulic torque transmission was automatically disengaged and the torque was mechanically transmitted. Gear changing was controlled by the position of the gear selector and an electronic unit. Engagement of each gear was made by an electro-hydraulic control system. The transmission had a built in hydraulic retarder.
