A Brief History:
It wasn’t until 1827 when Frenchman Onesiphore Pecqueur invented the conventional automobile differential. Originally used on steam-driven vehicles, it was a well-known device at the end of the 1800’s when internal-combustion engines arrived. The differential is an arrangement of gears that make it so the engine can divide power equally between a pair of wheels while at the same time allowing them to continue on paths with different lengths. For instance, when you take a turn inside a vehicle, the outer wheel has a further distance to travel as opposed to the inner wheel which takes a shorter route.
This invention revolutionized automobiles of the 19th century and has since withstood the test of time, as it is still one of the most vital components in modern automobiles. Although, being a complicated arrangement of gears positioned between two wheels and attached to each wheel by an axle shaft, any problems, questions, or concerns car owners have in regard to their automobiles differential should be brought to an expert mechanic.
