6.4.1. Features of a design

Fig. 6.4. Cardan transfer: 1 – fork flange; 2 – needle bearing; 3 – crosspiece; 4 – the sliding fork; 5 – a holder of an epiploon of the sliding fork; 6 – driveshaft pipe; 7 – driveshaft fork; 8 – driveshaft of the forward bridge

Cardan transfer (fig. 6.4) is intended for torque transmission from the transfer case to forward and back leading bridges.
The driveshaft of the forward bridge represents a thin-walled steel pipe, the back driveshaft integral, steel. On the one hand the shlitsevy tip on which the sliding fork of the cardan hinge is established is welded on a pipe. Shlitsevy connection of a shaft and fork is condensed with an epiploon. On the other hand the fork of the cardan hinge is welded on a pipe.
Both cardan hinges are connected to flanges, one of which (from a pipe) is attached to a flange of a reducer of the forward bridge, and another — to a flange of the conducted shaft of the transfer case. Each cardan hinge consists of two forks connected by a crosspiece.
