11.8. Release bearing

GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

At installation of the directing plug of the release bearing it is necessary to use a new sealing ring.


Removal

Removal of the release bearing from the directing plug

Extraction of an axis of the squeezing lever and removal of a fork of switching off of coupling

Installation of a sealing ring of the directing plug

Installation of the directing plug of the release bearing

Installation of the plastic plug of an axis of the squeezing lever

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For access to the release bearing it is necessary to remove coupling.
2. Unscrew the bolt fixing a fork of switching off of coupling to an axis of the squeezing lever.
3. If the coupling cable is not disconnected from the transmission yet, remove the bracket fixing a carving tip of a cable of coupling to the squeezing lever and remove a cable tip from the squeezing lever.
4. Remove the release bearing from the directing plug. Take an axis of the squeezing lever from a coupling case, at the same time the axis also has to leave a coupling switching off fork (see rice. Removal of the release bearing from the directing plug, Extraction of an axis of the squeezing lever and removal of a fork of switching off of coupling). In the presence take the release bearing from a plastic ring.
5. Believe the release bearing which has to rotate easily, evenly and silently. The working surface of the bearing influencing a press spring has to be smooth, without cracks, local corrosion or development. With defects the release bearing needs to be replaced.
6. At installation of new coupling the release bearing needs also to be replaced.
7. If necessary unscrew three bolts and remove the directing plug of the release bearing. After removal of the directing plug of the release bearing it is possible to replace a sealing ring of an entrance shaft of the transmission. Remove the sealing ring established between the directing plug and a case of coupling. Using screw-drivers as the lever, take a sealing ring from the directing plug. Using a tubular mandrel of the corresponding diameter, install a new sealing ring in the directing plug. Fill space between working edges of a sealing ring lithium lubricant, then install the directing plug with a new sealing ring. At installation of a sealing ring of the directing plug do not use lubricant (see rice. Installation of a sealing ring of the directing plug, Installation of the directing plug of the release bearing).
8. If necessary, replace plastic plugs of an axis of the squeezing lever for what beat out them from a coupling case, using a drift and the hammer. Install new plugs in a coupling case, at the same time the blocking uvulas of plugs have to enter the corresponding grooves in a coupling case (see rice. Installation of the plastic plug of an axis of the squeezing lever).

Installation

Tightening of a bolt of fastening of a fork of switching off of coupling

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Installation is made in the sequence, the return to removal taking into account the next moments.
2. Apply a thin film of lubricant on the basis of a molybdenum disulfide on the internal surface of plugs of an axis of the squeezing lever and the external surface of the directing plug of the release bearing.
3. In the presence install the release bearing in a plastic ring, then install the release bearing together with a fork of switching off of coupling on the directing plug. Insert an axis of the squeezing lever into a coupling case and tighten a bolt of fastening of a fork of switching off of coupling (see rice. Tightening of a bolt of fastening of a fork of switching off of coupling).
4. Establish coupling.
5. Check and, if necessary, adjust a coupling cable.
