GENERAL INFORMATION

Check of a condition of a protective cover of the hinge of equal angular speeds of a power shaft

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Lift a back part of the car and fix on supports.
2. Rotating a back wheel, examine rubber protective covers of hinges of equal angular speeds, compressing them for disclosure of bends. Check them on existence of cracks which can lead to leakage of greasing, and also to penetration in water and dirt (see drawing).
3. Also check a condition of fixing collars, examine covers of internal hinges and casings on the other hand. If any damage is found, it is necessary to replace a protective cover immediately.
4. At the same time check the general condition of hinges of equal angular speeds, holding a shaft and at the same time trying to turn wheels. Repeat attempt, holding the internal hinge of equal angular speeds and turning a shaft. Any appreciable люфт points to wear of the hinge, wear in grooves of a shaft or unscrewing of a lock nut of a shaft.
