3.3.12. Radical bearings and bearings of rods


Causes of wear of bearings
1. Decrease in strength of metal, fragmentary scratches

2. It is incorrectly planted; the bright (polished) strips

3. It is scratched by dirt; dirt ate in a bearing surface

4. Lack of oil; the top layer was wiped

5. Excessive wear; the top layer was wiped on all surface

6. The bearing is deformed; more truly the layer was wiped around


In spite of the fact that at an engine partition old loose leaves of bearings are replaced on new, it is necessary to examine old loose leaves carefully. Survey of the loose leaf can establish the reason of its wear.

Damage of bearings occurs because of a lack of greasing, availability of dirt and other alien particles, an engine and corrosion overload.

Selection of loose leaves

For the correct selection of loose leaves be guided by size of a lubricant gap which it is possible to measure by means of a plastic measuring tape. At emergence of any problems with selection of loose leaves address to experts.
