General information

The models equipped with RT, are equipped with coupling of diafragmenny type with a hydraulic drive. The disk of coupling is clamped between a press disk of diafragmenny type and an engine flywheel the pressure created by a spring. The Shlitsevy nave of a disk of coupling rotates on entrance to a transmission shaft; the cover of a press disk is attached by bolts to an engine flywheel.

When squeezing a pedal of coupling in the main cylinder pressure of liquid which forces out a pusher from the executive cylinder is created, actuating the lever of inclusion and vyzhimny the bearing. As vyzhimny the bearing presses petals of a press disk, pressure upon a disk of coupling weakens, disconnecting thereby the engine from transmission.

On the models described in this Management, two various types of disks of coupling, depending on flywheel type are applied. On models with a usual flywheel of disk type the disk of coupling has integral spring and dempfiruyushchy springs. Spring springs - located between frictional surfaces of a disk - break fall at coupling inclusion; dempfiruyushchy springs - help to extinguish an engine pulsation at rotation. On models with the flywheels, consisting their two parts, dempfiruyushchy springs are built in a flywheel.
