5.5. Coupling pedal mechanism


Coupling pedal

1 – latch,

2 – spring,

3 – axis and clamp of a latch,

4 – plug,

5 – coupling pedal,

6 – spring of a tension of the gear sector,

7 – gear sector

Ф the iksator of the automatic mechanism can be blocked on the gear sector of a pedal of coupling, especially, with considerable wear. In this case, there will be no free wheeling of a cable that will lead to pro-slipping of coupling and considerably will accelerate wear of slips.

For check of the mechanism it is necessary to open a cowl and to sharply extend a cable cover from a partition that will lead to a tension of a cable and turning of a gear segment. During the normal operation of the mechanism clicks from the latch moving on a gear segment are heard and at a cable cover otpuskaniye the mechanism holds a starting position. In case of jamming of a latch it is impossible to extend a cable cover from a partition.

If there was a jamming, to remove a cable of coupling is problematic.
First option of removal of a cable: to make effort for the switching-off lever for a cable detachment.

The second – to cut a cable, however it is necessary to remember that the switching-off lever at once will come back.

The cable pulling from a forward partition sometimes leads to jamming elimination, however it is desirable to replace the mechanism with new in this case.
