17.26. Check of a condition of protective covers of power shafts
Annually or each 20 000 km of run
Protective covers of power shafts are very important elements since they protect hinges of equal angular speeds (CV JOINT) from hit on them of dirt, water and other extraneous subjects causing damages. External pollution of protective covers by oil and greasings can lead to premature failure of a material of covers therefore it is recommended to wash periodically covers with water with soap.
|Examine covers on existence of gaps and cracks, and also the weakened collars. In case of detection of signs of cracks or leakage of greasing the cover should be replaced.
