Abstract: The system is designed for the gear shifter assembly of 4-wheeler. Design of test rig is based on CATIA V5 to give detail dimensional assembly of system. The gear shifter lever is connected to pneumatic cylinder to move shifter as per vehicle routing condition. The water is sprayed on shifter cable with the help of slurry pump at a constant flow of 25 LPM & pressure of 0.1 MPa. This paper provides comparison of force required for gear shifter in Characterization Test Bench before & after testing shifter cable under water.
