Check of dustproof caps and gap in heads of cross-section steering draft

Sharnirnye heads on the external end of cross-section steering drafts consist of steel spherical heads which greasings with a small amount are placed in synthetic covers and are not subject to maintenance. Protection of hinges against a dust and dampness is provided with the rubber caps which condition needs to be checked more often:


    Check all surface of dustproof cuffs on existence of cracks. Heads of cross-section steering drafts with the torn cuffs are considered as the defective – replace them. In hinges you can check gap existence on the raised car by wheel rocking concerning its vertical axis or by rocking of the most cross-section steering draft. Other possibility: let your assistant in the car standing on the earth will twist a steering wheel to the left and to the right, and you feel a hand, whether there is in the hinge a gap. At once replace cross-section steering drafts with a gap! By the same way it is checked, whether there is a gap in internal hinges of cross-section steering draft which are screwed together directly with a gear lath of a steering. If the internal hinge has defect, unfortunately, it is necessary to change all cross-section steering draft.
