7. Driveshaft and back bridge



The driveshaft of Ford Sierra cars consists of two parts. In cars with the engine 1,3 of dm3 has one elastic hinge (forward), and also two crosswise hinges, whereas in cars with dm3 engines 1,6 and 2,0 – three crosswise hinges.

The forward part of a shaft after installation is counterbalanced as a single whole. In case of a rassoyedineniye of parts of a shaft at their assembly it is necessary to pay attention to preservation of a relative positioning of adjusting signs (the deepenings executed by a center punch on a shaft, and also wide line on a crosspiece) which should lie on one line. Crosspieces of hinges have the needle bearings condensed for protection against pollution. Crosswise hinges form not folding knot which in case of need it is necessary to replace entirely with shaft.

Zadny Bridge

Zadny Bridge has a rigid suspension bracket, in front on a beam of a back axis, and behind through metallo-rubber elements to a body. The main transfer is gipoidny.

The gear wheel of the main transfer rotates in two conic bearings with the initial tightness realized by means of the being deformed remote plug.

Adjustment of coupling of teeths of the main transfer is made by means of selection of thickness of laying between the internal bearing of a gear wheel and a gear wheel of the main transfer.

Adjustment of a mezhzubyevy gap of the main transfer, and also initial tightness of bearings of differential is made by means of two adjusting flanges with ledges.

Semi-axial gear wheels are established on shlitsa of a semi-axis and fixed by means of a lock ring.
