Here is a picture of a transmission built by Mercedes. I found a great description of how these babies work at this website.

Tim, I had these transmission terms running around in my mind after reading the back of a Hero Truck trading card I found on the kitchen counter. I think the most gears that a truck can have is 18, and that most have a basic pattern of 9 gears-- the upper ones can then be 'split' into two at highway speed. I can't tell you why my father wanted a pizza from New York City or why they wouldn't deliver.
