7. Now it is possible to beat out a spring.

If necessary it is possible to replace the Rezinometallichesky plug of a forward eye of a spring. For this purpose the old plug выпрессовывается, and new is pressed. Can be also replaced and other rubber elements of fastening of a spring.


Installation of a spring is carried out as follows:

1. Put a spring in front to the bridge and insert a finger.
2. Establish back fastening of a spring with new rubber plugs. Details of knot are shown on an illustration.
3. Plugs and a cheek grease with greasing for rubber.

Removal and shock-absorber installation at sheet springs does not represent complexity. For this purpose it is necessary to raise the bridge the lift so that shock-absorbers were a little compressed. After that disconnect shock-absorbers in the top and lower part and remove it.

For check of the shock-absorber clamp it vertically for the bottom eye in a vice. Put forward and press the top part of the shock-absorber. Thus resistance should be felt.
