12.6. Power shafts


Power shafts transfer a torque from the engine, a transmission and differential to forward wheels. In a transmission case power shafts fasten shlitsevy connections with semi-axial gear wheels of differential. Fixing of a shlitsevy tip of the internal hinge of a power shaft in a semi-axial gear wheel is made by a spring lock ring. At installation the lock ring is compressed, entering into a shaft flute. After the shaft is completely established in a semi-axial gear wheel of differential, the lock ring is unclenched and fixes shlitsevy a tip from axial moving.

External hinges of power shafts fasten to the naves of forward wheels established on bearings. Shaft fastening to a nave is carried out by a nut with a fillet. For an exception of an otvorachivaniye of a nut the fillet of a nut is bent in dredging of a power shaft. Люфт between a nave and a power shaft it is eliminated with an arrangement шлицов. Shlitsa in a nave are located directly, and shlitsa on a shaft are executed at a small angle. Various execution шлицов provides connection with a preliminary tightness, that is the motionless landing excluding everything of adjustment.

Hinges of equal angular speeds (CV JOINTS) are established from two parties of a power shaft. All external CV JOINTS - the Birfield type, and internal - tripoidny type. CV JOINTS of tripoidny type are used for prevention of transfer of vibrations of the engine through power shafts on a car body.

CV JOINTS are necessary for transfer of a torque and compensation of movement of a forward suspension bracket. Also, CV JOINTS allow to change length of a power shaft and to transfer a torque under constantly changing corners.

Use of universal hinges of equal angular speeds is defined by need of compensation of movement of a forward suspension bracket during torque transfer by a power shaft. In process of suspension bracket movement CV JOINTS allow to change length of power shafts and to transfer a torque under constantly changing corners. For the purpose of providing demanded degree of freedom, in CV JOINTS case ball-bearings are used. In connections from tripoidny type three rollers, established on needle bearings and a support of rollers of tripoidny connection are used. In connections of both types the external ring is pierced under the CV JOINT case.

Tripoidnye can be assorted and repaired hinges. Protective covers, external Birfield CV JOINTS are subject to repair only assembled with shaft.
