Some parts had to be made from scratch and then custom-fit, like the bearings on the friction clutch. A Texas company said they could make the clutch part, but they'd need a pattern of the casting in order to drill holes for bolts to hold the clutch in.
Parallel Gear Transmissions (PGTs) solve the ride comfort problem of AMTs by adding a friction clutch, enabling parallel torque transfer through the highest gear [25, 28].
