4.3.5. Check of technical condition

Eccentricity check
Forward shaft. Establish a shaft in the centers and, turning, check a beating which should not exceed:
— on a pipe, at distance of 70 mm from trailer welded seams — 0,55 mm, on the center of a pipe — 0,35 mm, on outer diameters of vents — 0,1 mm.
Back shaft. Establish a shaft in the centers. Turning a shaft, check its beating which should not exceed:
— on a pipe, at distance of 70 mm from trailer welded seams — 0,55 mm, on the center of a pipe — 0,35 mm.
If the beating exceeds admissible limits, correct shaft under a press. At a big beating it is recommended to replace shaft.

Shlitsevy connection
Check a district gap in shlitsevy connection of the sliding fork of the forward driveshaft. A maximum permissible district gap on the average diameter of vents of 0,30 mm.
Check a condition of a holder and an epiploon of the sliding fork. If necessary replace an epiploon, and at damage and I will embrace.

Cardan hinges
Check a condition of cases of bearings, needles, thorns of a crosspiece, epiploons, holders and forks.
If cases of bearings, needles and thorns of crosspieces, and also epiploons or their holders are damaged or worn-out, replace a crosspiece assembled with bearings.
Diameter of an opening of a fork under the needle bearing should not exceed 23,825 mm.

Elastic coupling
Check a condition of rubber elements of the elastic coupling. In the presence of cracks or peeling of rubber from metal inserts replace the elastic coupling.

Flange of the elastic coupling
Check a condition of the aligning plug of a flange of the elastic coupling. At considerable wear or damage of the plug replace a flange assembled.

Intermediate support
Check a condition of the bearing, turning an internal ring in both directions and at the same time pressing it to an external ring. At the same time the internal ring of the bearing has to rotate smoothly, without jammings. Check a condition of sealants of the bearing.
If the bearing is worn-out or damaged, replace it new.
Check whether there are no damages or deformations of an intermediate support, if necessary replace it new.
