Removing and installing the gearbox of a KamAZ car

The gearbox is removed to replace and repair the clutch and repair the gearbox

Two models of gearboxes are installed on KamAZ vehicles: on single vehicles - a five-speed gearbox model 14 on tractor vehicles designed to work as part of road trains - a ten-speed gearbox model 15, consisting of a main five-speed gearbox and a front two-stage gearbox -divider.

The divider has a high and low (direct) gear and, in combination with the main five-speed gearbox, allows you to get ten forward gears and two reverse gears.

The use of a gear divider improves the traction and economic qualities of the car, makes it easier to drive the car, since when it is used, the frequency of shifting gears with the shift lever is reduced.

Upgraded heavy-duty vehicles are equipped with 152 gearboxes, which have the following design differences from the 15 gearbox:

  • - splines of the input shaft of the divider, carriage and synchronizer clutch are reinforced by increasing the height of the teeth;
  • — simplified pneumatic scheme for controlling the gear divider (two air ducts, an air duct fastening block are excluded) due to the use of plastic air ducts from the divider control valve;
  • —keyless connections of gears and an intermediate shaft are used due to an increase in interference;
  • - the locking device in the spline connection is excluded, the synchronizer carriage 4-5 gears - the secondary shaft of the gearbox (in order to increase the durability of the connection);
  • - to prevent self-shutdown of 4th and 5th gears, a four-degree thinning of the teeth of the synchronizer carriage couplings of 4-5 gears (instead of one and a half degrees) and, accordingly, the teeth of the input shaft coupling and gear of 4th gears is applied, and the height of the coupling teeth is also increased;
  • - the bearing of the front support of the secondary shaft of a larger load capacity is installed;
  • —The 4th gear ring gear has been widened to increase the bearing capacity.
