8.1. A technical characteristics

Kardannyj shaft

The kardannyj shaft of cars Ford Scorpio consists of two parts.

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

Depending on car updating карданный the shaft incorporates to a transmission through elastic муфту or карданный the hinge.

The back bridge

The back 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 гипоидной.

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

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

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

On some models the differential of viscous coupling which works at the expense of the force of shift arising between disks of viscous coupling when angular speed of one wheel differs from angular speed of other wheel is established.

Adjusting data

The moment of resistance of rotation of a gear wheel of the main transfer the bridge 7,5 "and 7":
