Capital repairs of RKPP - the general information

Capital repairs of RKPP demand from the performer of high skill level as it assumes need of exact exposure of a set of gaps by selection of adjusting washers and remote plugs. Besides, it is rather difficult to find internal components of the transmission on free sale, not to mention the high prices of them. In view of told, authors of the present manual recommend to make in case of violations of serviceability of functioning of RKPP replacement it on the new or restored block.

Nevertheless, rather skilled amateur mechanic without effort can execute repair of the transmission by own forces on condition of existence of the special tool and at slow approach to implementation as appropriate of all necessary procedures.

In number of special tools without which use repair of RKPP becomes impossible nippers for extraction of external and internal lock rings, a set of strippers, the hammer with sliding brisk, a set of drifts, the dial measuring instrument of plunger type and, whenever possible, hydraulic press belong. Besides, the workplace has to be equipped with a big strong workbench with a vice.

In the course of dismantling of the transmission it is necessary to fix carefully on paper the adjusting provision of all removed components for the purpose of a guarantee of correctness of placement them at assembly.

Before starting dismantling of RKPP, try to define for yourself the possible reasons of the violations taking place. Some problems are rather accurately tied to functioning of concrete knots of the transmission that allows to reduce significantly time for identification and elimination of defects (see Diagnostics of malfunctions of knots and systems of the car).
