GENERAL INFORMATION

In cars with the mechanical transmission the one-disk dry coupling operated mechanically by means of a cable is used. The leading part of coupling has the central disk spring. The clutch plate has a quencher of tortional fluctuations with screw springs. The release bearing – ball. Adjustment of a free wheeling automatic also happens by means of the ratchet mechanism located about a coupling pedal.
