Hi CarTalk Community,
I have a bit of a problem here and I hope that my question is not out of place.
I want to construct a Lepelletier automatic 6 speed gearbox. I want to create a 6HP19 with the following (standard) ratios: 4.17 - 2.34 - 1.52 - 1.14 - 0.87 - 0.69 - 3.40 - -3.73
I found the dimensions of the gears on that page: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lepelletier-Getriebe#/media/File:Lepelletier_Gesamt_N.gif
However, as you can see, the short planetary gears are bigger than the long ones, which is a problem because I cannot place the ring gear around them, as it is shown here on page 8: http://www.all-trans.by/assets/site/files/zf/6hp19-26.pdf
So, this question is probably a bit awkward, but I hope someone can help me
