8.2.7. Utilization of the shock-absorber

GENERAL INFORMATION

Gas pressure in the new gas-filled shock-absorber reaches 25 bars therefore at utilization of the gas-filled shock-absorber be careful and use goggles. It is possible to utilize the shock-absorber by two methods: either having drilled an opening, or having cut the shock-absorber case.

Drilling of the shock-absorber

Places of drilling of openings in the shock-absorber case

And – an opening with a diameter of 3 mm,
In – an opening with a diameter of 6 mm

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Fix the shock-absorber in a vice by a rod down.
2. A drill with a diameter of 3 mm drill an opening in the case of the shock-absorber (A), see rice. Places of drilling of openings in the shock-absorber case.
Prevention

When drilling an opening in the case of the gas-filled shock-absorber gas under pressure will come to light. At gas discharge from the shock-absorber close an opening rags.


3. Continuing drilling, drill an internal pipe of the shock-absorber (about 25 mm).
4. Using a drill with a diameter of 6 mm, drill the second opening (V) in the case and an internal pipe of the shock-absorber.
5. Establish the corresponding capacity under the shock-absorber and, moving a shock-absorber piston rod from an emphasis against the stop, squeeze out liquid from the shock-absorber.
6. After discharge of liquid from the shock-absorber the shock-absorber can be handed over for processing.

Cutting of the shock-absorber

Fastening of the shock-absorber in a vice when cutting the case of the shock-absorber

 

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Fix the shock-absorber in vertical position in a vice, see rice. Fastening of the shock-absorber in a vice when cutting the case of the shock-absorber.
2. Establish on the top part of the case of the shock-absorber труборез and cut the shock-absorber case. At the same time from газонапол the nenny shock-absorber there will be no gas.
3. Take a shock-absorber rod up, at the same time hold an internal pipe of the shock-absorber in the shock-absorber case.
4. Take a shock-absorber rod from an internal pipe.
5. Merge liquid from the shock-absorber in the corresponding capacity.
