  1. Bob P says:

    The input shaft is turned in the same direction as the engine. It is what the clutch is connected to. The reaction shaft or counter shaft is driven by the input shaft. It rotates in the opposite direction. The two shafts are connected by gears. The way that the gears are coupled together determines the counter shaft speed. The countershaft is the output shaft. When you shift the transmission you are coupling different gears together to change the ratio between the shafts.
