11.7. Coupling (the transmission is removed)


1. Put a label on a flywheel, being combined with a groove in a coupling casing. Gradually in diagonal sequence weaken bolts of fastening of leading knot of coupling, turning each bolt on a turn half until it will be terminated springs and bolts can be unscrewed manually.
2. Remove a leading part of coupling and a coupling disk. Note that the smaller ledge of a nave of a disk of coupling is directed to a flywheel.
3. Check a condition of elements of coupling on signs of wear and damages as it is described in the previous section.


Groove arrangement in a casing of coupling which should be combined with a label on a flywheel

1. It is recommended to establish first of all in the car the engine, and then on the engine to establish coupling.
2. Check that on an overlay of a disk of coupling and a surface of a press disk and a flywheel oil or other greasing did not get. Wipe a surface of a flywheel and a press disk pure rags, and installation of coupling make clean hands.
3. Establish a coupling disk on a flywheel, thus a smaller ledge of a nave of a disk of coupling it should be directed to a flywheel.
4. Establish a leading part of coupling on a flywheel, combining a label on a flywheel with a groove in a coupling casing (see drawing). Screw in six bolts of fastening of a leading part of coupling and tighten them manually so that the disk of coupling was pressed but, nevertheless, it could be moved.
5. Using an opravka, center a coupling disk. As an opravka it is possible to use an old entrance shaft of a transmission.
6. Gradually in diagonal sequence tighten the demanded moment bolts of fastening of a leading part of coupling to a flywheel. Remove an opravka for a centering of a disk of coupling. Apply a thin film greasings on a shlitsa of a disk of coupling. The layer of greasing should be thin and uniform, otherwise at coupling work excessive greasing will be rejected on working surfaces of coupling and can break coupling work.
7. Establish a transmission on the car.
8. Check and, if necessary, adjust a coupling cable.
