We clamp the mechanism in a vice with the fittings down and drain the remaining oil into the container, turning the shaft of the mechanism with a key by 17

Having pressed the spool shaft with your hand, we swing the bipod

If at the same time axial play of the shaft is felt, adjust the thrust bearings. For this:

Through a drift, we straighten the collar of the adjusting nut, which has been punched into the grooves of the crankcase

With a special wrench, turn the nut clockwise until the gap is eliminated

At the same time, we control the moment of rotation of the shaft, which should be no more than 0.2 kgf.m

To do this, with a dynamometer hooked to the key at 17, we measure the moment of turning the spool shaft

With a lever length of 200 mm, the force should not exceed 1.0 kgf
