11.5. Cuffs of hinges of a steering trapeze


Defective cuffs should be replaced urgently since the dirt which has got into the hinge puts it out of action for a short time. In doubtful cases the tip of the lever or all steering trapeze assembled is replaced.


1. Remove a steering trapeze.
2. Remove a flat spring ring (3) by means of a screw-driver.
3. Remove a cuff (2) together with a round spring ring (10) up.
4. Instruction: in case of a cuff of the ball hinge between draft and the lever of a trapeze arrive in the same way, but the lever tip before should be unscrewed.


1. Remove greasing and fill the ball hinge about 3 cm3 of multi-purpose greasing, for example, Shell Retinax A.
2. Insert a new spring ring (10) round sections into a rubber cuff.
3. A rubber cuff (2) put on through a hinge pin.
4. A flat spring ring (3) put by means of a screw-driver with the rounded-off edges not to damage a rubber cuff.
5. Put into place a steering trapeze.
