SISTEMAS DE TRANSMISION

PARTE I

What Does a Clutch Do?


The function of a clutch is to connect or disconnect the flow of power from the engine to the driveline
Provides a way to translate engine rotation into transmission rotation, Provides a way to allow the engine to run without the truck moving, Provides a way to break torque to select and change gears.

Que es lo que hace un Embrague? La funcin de un Embrague es conectar o desconectar el flujo de potencia del motor a la lnea de fuerza.
Provee un camino para trasladar le rotacin del motor a la transmisin. Provee un camino para permitir que el motor gire sin mover el camin. Provee un camino para frenar el torque para seleccionar y cambiar la marcha.

How Does it work ? - Engaged


Flywheel Clutch

Disc is clamped by the clutch cover, connecting the engine crankshaft to the transmission input shaft Transmission rotates with the engine

Como trabaja? - Enganchado


Volante Embrague

El disco est fijado por el plato de embrague, conectando el eje del cigueal del motor a el eje de entrada de la transmision.

La transmision gira con el motor.

How Does it work ? - Disengaged


Flywheel Clutch

Pressure plate separates from the disc Transmission is disconnected from the engine

Como trabaja? - Desenganchado


Volante Embrague

La presion del plato separa el disco. La transmision es desconectada del motor.

Clutch - Basic Components

Front Disc:

Rear Disc:

Cover Assembly: An assembly which is mounted on the flywheel, and squeezes the discs against the intermediate plate (in a 2-plate clutch) and the flywheel.

Intermediate Plate: A floating cast iron plate that provides additional clamping surfaces for the discs in a 2-plate clutch.

Disco
Hub: A toothed component that mates with the transmission input shaft, and is the point of torque transfer to the transmission.

Cara Cubo Amortiguador

Facing: Cerametallic friction material which when clamped up between adjacent iron surfaces (pressure plate, intermediate plate, engine flywheel) causes the disc to rotate in unison with these components thereby translating flywheel rotation into transmission input shaft rotation.

Damper: A set of springs radially arranged around the hub to prevent torsional vibrations (generated by the engine) from being transmitted to the hub, and in essence the rest of the driveline.

13

Disco
Cubo: Un componente dentado que se acopla al eje de entrada de la transmision, y es el punto de transferencia del torque a la transmision.

Cara Cubo Amortiguador

Cara: Material de friccion Cerametalico que se adhiere entre la superficie adyacente de acero (plato de presion, plato intermedio, volante del motor) causando que el disco gire al unisono con estos componentes, por eso traslada la rotacion del volante al eje de entrada de la transmision.

Amortiguador: Un juego de resortes alojados radialmente alrededor del cubo previene de vibraciones torsionales (generados por el motor) de ser transmitidas al cubo, y en escensia all resto de la linea de fuerza.

PUSH: Bearing moves towards the engine


PULL: Bearing moves away from the engine

16

Empuje o Jalon
Indica la direccion en la que la fuerza es aplicada al collarin para desenganchar el embrague (Desenganche = pedal de embrague depressed)
EMPUJE: El cojinete se mueve hacia el motor JALON: El cojinete se mueve fuera del motor

Adjustable Manually adjusted, Angle spring type


Internal Adjusting Ring Spring Load System Adjustment threads

17

Clamping force is generated by coil springs and then amplified by the levers. The clamp load remains constant because the springs are periodically repositioned by manual rotation of the adjusting ring.

Adjustable -

18 Threaded adjusting ring is replaced by opposing cam ramps

Automatic, Solo type

The threaded adjusting ring is replaced by two opposing ramp sections (cams) which are spring loaded to provide automatic compensation for facing wear. Therefore, the clamp load remains constant without manual adjustment.

19

Clutch Brake
Clutch Brake Used with non-synchronized transmissions. Used to stop rotation of the input shaft, i.e. clutch discs. Improves shift time when selecting gears from standstill. Is not used for up shifting or down shifting. Influences maintenance requirements for the clutch linkage system.

20

Freno de Embrague
Freno de Embrague Usada con transmisiones no sincronizadas. Usada para detener el giro del eje de entrada, y/o de los discos. Mejora los tiempos de los cambios cuando se seleciona marchas desde el reposo. No es usado para subir o bajar marchas. Afecta los requerimientos de mantenimiento para el sitema articulado del embrague.

49

Clutch Disengaged - Bearing Travel Stabilized


Fully released to Clutch Brake Sleeve restricts pressure plate departure

No separation, therefore No adjustments

50

Stabilized Release Bearing Travel


When no facing wear has occurred and no clutch adjustments are required,

we refer to the release bearing travel as being stabilized


The release bearing travel stabilizes based upon the release travel required to achieve full pressure plate departure, which is set by the four wear

sensors
As the clutch facings wear, the release bearing moves towards the engine, thus reducing yoke free play Therefore, on the next full disengagement (i.e. to the clutch brake), the release bearing travel has increased It is this increase in release travel which causes the clutch to adjust

51

Clutch Engaged - After Facing Wear


Release travel Increased Yoke freeplay Reduced

Clutch Disengaged - After Adjustment


Cam rotates, eliminating the gap created by the facing wear

68

Clutch adjustment

Check/set the clearance between the yoke tips and the bearing wear pads for a minimum 1/8 clearance, the truck linkage is used to increase or decrease the clearance.

69

Clutch adjustment
Insert a .010 feeler gauge between the bearing and the brake, depress clutch pedal to the end of its stroke to verify clutch brake squeeze.

70

Clutch adjustment
The clutch brake will be squeezed if the total pedal stroke exceeds the 1/8 and the 1/2 settings. If not you will need to gain more linkage movement.

71

Clutch adjustment
If the brake is not being squeezed, do not change the 1/2 and 1/8 settings. Check linkage for worn components. Verify linkage is reassembled in correct hole locations. Increase pedal stroke (raising upper and lowering lower pedal stops).

72

Clutch adjustment

104

Transmission Air System


Slave Valve:
The slave valve controls the supply of air to the low and high range sides of the range shift cylinder. A small air line from the shift knob provides a signal pressure to the slave valve.

105

Transmission Air System


Slave Valve Pre-selection System:
This interlock mechanism prevents the slave valve from shifting when the transmission is engaged into gear.

106

The insert valve is a small 1 3/16 diameter self contained switching valve and is located in the Range/Reduction cylinder cover.

108

Transmission-Troubleshooting
Once a problem is identified: Is it coming from the transmission or the drive axle. If we are dealing with a transmission is the noise/complaint :

on coast or pull specifically ?


Grind/howl/growl or rattle ?

Lever jump out ?

109

Procedures to follow
If the noise/complaint is on coast or pull specifically:
This identifies whether we are dealing with a engine or driveline angle induced noise or vibration.

Possibilities:
Broken or compressed clutch damper springs. Improper driveline u-joint working angle (caused by
of the suspension leveling valve). misadjustment

Driveline runout or imbalance.

110

Procedures to follow
If the complaint is a grind/howl/growl or rattle :
Is the grind on a lever shift or a button shift. Is the howl or growl noise in low range or high range,
(low split or high split, deep reduction or direct ?)

Is the rattle coming from the trans shift lever if,you put side to side pressure on the lever does it go away ? Are there any filings in the oil, pieces or sharp chunks ?

111

Procedures to follow
If the complaint is lever jump out :
Identify what lever position the trans. is in at the time of occurrence.

If the complaint is in direct overdrive rail a green detent spring can replace the orange one in the top cover.

To aid in identifying gear sets, both parts are stamped with such information as number of pinion and ring gear teeth, individual part number and matched set number.

120

Power Flow theory of Operation


Power Divider:
In operation the power divider accepts torque from the vehicle driveline and distributes it equally to the two axles. This assembly is of the two-gear design consisting of an input shaft, inter-axle differential, output shaft and two constant-mesh helical gears.

121

Power Flow theory of Operation


Power Divider:
The inter-axle differential compensates for minor variations in speed between the two axles the same way a wheel differential works between two wheel ends. This unit also acts as a central point in distribution of torque to the two axles.

122

Power Flow theory of Operation


Power Divider:
The power divider also includes a driver-controlled, air operated lockout. When lockout is engaged, it mechanically prevents inter-axle differentiation for better performance under poor traction conditions.

Note- the vehicle can be moving when the power divider lockout is engaged but: THERE

MUST BE NO WHEEL SPIN

123

Lube Pump theory of Operation


The front tandem axle is equipped with a lube pump located in the power divider, the pump provides positive lubrication to the inter-axle differential assembly and other power divider parts. This pump is operated by a drive gear engaged with the input shaft splines. The lube pump system incorporates a magnetic strainer screen, to keep any metal particles out of the system.

124

Theory of Operation Power-Flow


Driver controlled power divider is UN-locked.

Torque is transmitted to both axles through inter-axle differential action.

Theory

125

of Operation Power-Flow
Driver controlled power divider is locked.

Torque is transmitted to both axles without inter-axle differential action.

Drive axle Lubrication


Eaton/Dana recommends the use of synthetic oil in all of its drive axle product, however an approved mineral based lube can be used.
If a mineral based lube is used it must be MILL-2105D approved.
If a mineral based lube is used it must have an initial drain at 8,000kms. Never mix oil types or viscosity.

134

Drive axle Lubrication


Eaton/Dana recommended inspection of drive axle lubricant levels.
On Highway applications : Check and inspect for leaks every 16,000kms. On/Off highway applications :

Every 40 hours, check fluid level and inspect for leaks.

135

Drive axle Lubrication


Regular inspection of drive axle lube levels is an essential maintenance procedure:
To check lube level, remove the filler hole plug located in the axle housing cover. Lubricant should be level with the bottom of this hole.
