After repairing the crankshaft, as well as the flywheel, clutch or pulley installed on it, it is necessary to balance them

Dynamic balancing of parts mounted on the crankshaft (flywheel, pulley, crankshaft, pressure and driven clutch discs) must be carried out on machines mod. MS-970 or PBM-4. Less accurate static balancing of these parts is carried out on machines mod. 40U-314 (Fig. 1).

Machine mod. 40U-314 for static balancing of the flywheel, pulley, pressure and driven clutch discs

Balancing the crankshaft, as well as the crankshaft with the flywheel and clutch mounted on it, should be carried out in dynamic mode with weights on the connecting rod journals replacing the connecting rod and piston group on the connecting rod journal.

Balancing weight mounted on crankshaft crankpins< /p>

The balancing weight (Fig. 2) consists of two identical half-rings connected by two bolts made of steel 40x (GOST 4543-71), with a hardness of 35.. .40 HRCe.

The outer, inner surfaces of certain diameters and the ends of the load are finally processed after connecting the half-rings with bolts.

The internal diameter of the weight is D+0.025 mm, where D is the diameter of the crankpin.

The displacement of the axes of the bolts relative to the ends and the internal diameter of the load should be no more than 0.05 mm.

The bolts must be of the same mass.

The load is adjusted by weight with a decrease in the outer diameter with an accuracy of +1 g and statically balanced on the mandrel with an accuracy of 2 g/cm so that the center of gravity of the load is on the axis of the load and in the middle of its width.

After that, risks are applied to the outer surface to ensure the assembly of the half-rings in one position.

Balancing weight mounted on clutch disc

The clutch driven disc assembly is balanced relative to the side surfaces of the splines of the hub when one or three weights are installed (Fig. 3), which are attached to the disc with antennae.

After bending them, the immobility of the connection is ensured. Residual imbalance - no more than 25 gcm.

Balancing weights are made of sheet steel 08 with a thickness of 2.0 mm and a weight of 12 g; 1.2 mm thick and 7.5 g.

The clutch pressure plate with casing assembly is balanced relative to the working surface of the pressure plate and two diametrically located holes for fastening the casing to the flywheel by drilling holes with a diameter of 13.8 mm in the bosses under the springs to a depth of no more than 23 mm.

The distance between the bearing surfaces of the disk and the casing should be 9.84-0.1 mm, with a tolerance of non-parallelism of these surfaces of 0.03 mm. Residual imbalance should be no more than 50 gcm.

After balancing, the mounting holes are marked. With any re-installation through the same holes, the imbalance should be no more than 90 gcm.

The crankshaft with flywheel and clutch assembly is balanced relative to the extreme main journals when drilling holes with a diameter of 15 mm (to a depth of not more than 15 mm, with a distance between them of at least 5 mm) at a distance of 184 mm from the axis of the shaft in uncovered clutch casing segments of the flywheel running surface or when drilling holes in the bosses under the clutch pressure plate springs.

Residual unbalance on the clutch (flywheel) side should be no more than 70 gsm.

Before balancing, a weight is put on each crankpin, and the clutch disc is centered relative to the inner diameter of the bearing on the crankshaft flange using the gearbox input shaft or a special mandrel.
