Refer to Torque Path in Reverse Range, Converter Drive, No Steer for the action of range gearing in reverse
range. Steer action in reverse is described in the following paragraphs.
As in all steer conditions, counterclockwise rotation is delivered to the right and left steer--clutch drive gears
by the steer gear system. Unlike steer in forward ranges, the steer clutch opposite the side toward which steer is de-
sired must be applied. Thus, for right steer in reverse, the left steer clutch must be engaged. This is because both
the ring gear and sun gear, turn in the same direction in reverse operation.
Thus, the transmission output speed is increased at that side and decreased at the opposite side. Steer is
always towards the side at which output speed is lower, regardless of vehicle direction. The steer flywheel functions
are explained in Torque Path in High Range, Lockup Drive, Left Steer.
Refer to this work package for the gear ratios involved in reverse range steer.
