4.1.16.1. Check of a cranked shaft

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Check necks of a cranked shaft on a roughness. Any appreciable roughness specifies that a cranked shaft it is necessary перешлифовать or to replace.
2. If the cranked shaft was перешлифован, check agnails round openings for greasing. In the presence of agnails remove them with a small file or a shaber or carefully clear openings and channels of shaving.
3. Using a micrometer, measure diameter of radical and shatunny necks of a cranked shaft and compare results to the data provided in subsection 4.1.1 (for radical necks) and in subsection 4.1.1 (for shatunny necks). Measurement of necks make in several points, both on diameter, and on length of a neck that will allow to reveal ovality and a konusnost if they are present.
4. Check surfaces of contact of oil consolidation on each end of a cranked shaft on wear and other damages. If wear of a neck from consolidation big, that, probably, is required replacement of a cranked shaft.
5. Wear of a shatunny neck is characterized by metal knocks at operation of the engine, especially under loading, on small turns and reduction of pressure of oil.
6. Wear of radical necks of a cranked shaft is characterized by strong vibration of the engine and the metal knock increasing at increase in turns of the engine, and also reduction of pressure of oil.
