Replacement of a back epiploon of a bent shaft


1. Hang out the unit from above on the winch or a beam and remove the transmission (see the Head the Transmission). Remove a flywheel / a driving disk (see the Section Removal and installation of a flywheel / a driving disk).
2. Having accurately hooked the screw-driver, take an old epiploon from a landing nest in the holder.
3. Grease a pin of a bent shaft and a sponge of a new epiploon with universal lubricant. Landing of an epiploon is carried out by means of a mandrel as which the face head of the corresponding size, or a piece of a pipe of suitable diameter can be used. As a last resort, just begin to knock an epiploon in a nest a stupid drift. Track perpendicularity of landing of an epiploon in a nest.

The epiploon has rather rigid sponges which are easy for damaging, observe extreme care! Landing is carried out not more deeply than aflush with the holder's back.
