5.5. Mechanism of a pedal of coupling


Coupling pedal



3–axis and clamp of a latch,


5–pedal of coupling,

6–spring of a tension of gear sector,

7–gear sector

Ф the iksator of the automatic mechanism can be blocked on gear sector of a pedal of coupling, especially, in the presence of considerable wear. In this case, there will be no free wheeling of a cable that will lead to pro-slipping of coupling and considerably will accelerate wear of slips.

For check of the mechanism it is necessary to open a cowl and sharply to extend a cable cover from a partition that will lead to a tension of a cable and a povorachivaniye of a gear segment. At normal operation of the mechanism clicks from a latch moving on a gear segment are audible, and at an otpuskaniye of a cover of a cable the mechanism occupies a starting position. In case of jamming of a latch to extend a cable cover from a partition it is impossible.

If there was a jamming, to remove a cable of coupling is problematic.
First option of removal of a cable: to make effort the switching-off lever for a cable detachment.

With the second – to cut a cable, however it is necessary to remember that the switching-off lever will come back at once back.

The cable pulling from a forward partition sometimes leads to jamming elimination, however it is desirable to replace the mechanism with the new in this case.
