Design of a power shaft

1 — the External CV JOINT
2 — the Lock ring
3 — the Bandage tape of fastening of a protective cover
4 — the Protective cover
5 — the Power shaft
6 — the Protective cover
7 — Krestovina of tripodny assembly of the external CV JOINT

8 — the Lock ring
9 — the Persistent ring
10 — the External holder of the CV JOINT
11 — the Lock ring
12 — the Vibration damper (a quencher of tortional fluctuations) of the right power shaft
13 — the Bolt with an internal hexagon under a prutkovy key

Transfer of rotation from differential of the main transfer of transmission to driving wheels is carried out by means of two integral shod steel power shafts. The external ends of both power shafts are equipped with the vents interfaced to vents of naves of driving wheels of the car. For fixing of a shaft in a nave the big nut is used. The internal ends of shaft also come to an end with the pins equipped with vents entering interface to side gear wheels of differential. The left shaft is shorter than the arrangement of the main transfer of rather longitudinal axis of the car, right owing to asymmetry. The list of right (longer) included the vibration damper located at distance of 105 mm from edge of a protective cover of the internal CV JOINT, and intended for repayment of tortional fluctuations of assembly during its rotation. The design of a power shaft is presented on an accompanying illustration. After forging power shafts are tempered in a special way that gives them the increased durability.

Since both ends of each of shaft the hinges of equal angular speeds (HEAS) are installed. Hinges provide stability and smoothness of rotation of the drive under any corners of an arrangement of wheels caused by a paving relief and also during commission of turns. As external CV JOINTS separator ball-bearing assemblies are used. Internal hinges have a tripodny design.
