  • Patent number: 4493403
    Abstract: A parking lock mechanism for a vehicle having a fluid operated clutch or electromagnetic clutch. A select lever is rotatably and axially slidably mounted on a shaft and a link mechanism is provided for transmitting the operation of a shift lever to the select lever for rotating and sliding it. In a transmission of the vehicle, a parking shifter rail provided for parking operation is connected to the select lever by a fork. An interlocking plate is provided to be moved together with the select lever to be engaged with the fork at a parking position of the select lever. A parking pawl is provided to be operatively engaged with the parking shifter rail, and a parking gear is provided in the transmission so as to be engaged with the parking pawl. When the shift lever is shifted to the parking position, the parking pawl is rotated by the movement of the parking shifter rail and engaged with the parking gear, and the interlocking plate engages with the fork for locking the parking shifter rail.
