17.1. The general data

For a drive of back wheels on the car in addition distributing box, propeller a shaft, the main reverse gear and back shaft of a drive is established. For alignment of speed of rotation of forward and back wheels the interaxal differential which distributes a twisting moment between forward and back axes of the car is used. At proslipping of wheels of one of axes of the car the twisting moment transferred to other axis, automatically increases. Coupling of wheels of the car with a road covering thus improves. Eсли coupling of wheels with a road covering decreases, the twisting moment transferred to this axis therefore stability of the car to lateral drifts increases decreases also. Irrespective of it the interaxal differential supposes rotation of wheels with various speed that is necessary for normal work of antiblocking system of brakes.
The twisting moment from a transmission and the main transfer is transferred to wheels through four shaft of a drive. Each of shaft is inserted into a nave of a wheel and fixed by a nut.
The kardannyj shaft connects a transmission to the main reverse gear.
As propeller the shaft is the balanced knot, sticking to it of a dirt is inadmissible. At a raising of the car for maintenance service it is expedient to clear propeller a shaft and to check up its technical condition. Every time when propeller the shaft acts in film, for prevention of infringement of its balancing it is necessary to establish in the same position.
Malfunction signs карданного a shaft usually are noise or vibration at car movement.
