8.4.2. Adjustment of a gap in the steering mechanism
If the gap between a gear wheel and a lath in the steering mechanism is increased, at the movement of the car the steering mechanism publishes knock. Besides the steering wheel has the raised free wheeling that complicates driving. At total absence of a gap (the steering mechanism "is drawn") self-stabilization of steering at the movement on a straight line worsens (the car constantly takes away in any party, the driver should "taxi up" continuously).
Adjustment is carried out at the hung-out forward wheels established in provision of the rectilinear movement.
Steering mechanisms with the hydraulic booster and without him regulate identical receptions.
It will be required to you: a key "on 26", a special key "on 50".
Fig. 8.3. Adjusting knot of the steering mechanism: 1 – case of the steering mechanism; 2 – plunger; 3 – sealing ring; 4 – spring; 5 – adjusting stopper; 6 – lock-nut
2. Weaken a lock-nut of 6 (fig. 8.3) and wrap an adjusting stopper 5 until notable increase of effort.
3. Turn off a stopper on 30-40 ° and check ease of movement of a lath at turns of a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop.
4. Holding an adjusting stopper from a provorachivaniye, tighten a lock-nut the moment of 70 N · m.
5. Establish into place the vacuum amplifier of brakes and check correctness of adjustment on the run. If necessary repeat adjustment.
