Check of dustproof caps and backlash in heads of cross-section steering draught

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


  1. Check up all surface of dustproof cuffs on presence of cracks.
  2. Heads of cross-section steering draughts with the torn cuffs are considered defective – replace them.
  3. In hinges you can check up backlash presence on the raised car by rocking of a wheel concerning its vertical axis or by rocking of the most cross-section steering draught.
  4. 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 backlash.
  5. At once replace cross-section steering draughts with a backlash!
  6. By the same way it is checked, whether there is a backlash in internal hinges of cross-section steering draught which are screwed together directly with gear рейкой a steering.
  7. If the internal hinge has defect, unfortunately, it is necessary to change all cross-section steering draught.
