14.3. Adjustment of gearing of a reducer


If the big free wheeling of a steering wheel is found or for its turn it is necessary to use the efforts more than admissible, we regulate gearing of a reducer. It is necessary to expose wheels in situation for the rectilinear movement and to be convinced available oils of a reducer.

We remove a protective cap from the adjusting screw. A key "on 17" we weaken a nut so that it was possible to raise a lock washer.

Several times quickly we turn a steering wheel to the left and to the right on a corner about 10 ° and by at the same time shlitsevy screw-driver it is wrapped the adjusting screw (is unscrewed) until a free wheeling and efforts on a steering wheel are not included into admissible limits. It is not recommended to tighten the screw too strongly.

After adjustment we tighten a nut, holding the screw-driver the adjusting screw from a provorachivaniye.
If the axial side play of an axis of the pendular lever is found, then we tighten a nut on the top part of an axis. For this purpose in podkapotny space...

... we take out the forelock from a koronchaty nut...

... a face key "on 19" we wrap it on 60 ° (one side) and again we check a side play.

If the side play did not disappear, then once again we tighten a nut and we install the forelock. If after a nut wraparound the effort necessary for turning of a wheel strongly increases, then we repair the pendular lever (see Replacement and repair of the pendular lever).
