5 Characteristics of driven plate axial clamping load to deflection take-up Fig. 6 Characteristics of crankshaft torsional vibrations undamped and damped end and to a lesser extent the rear flywheel end (Fig. 6). If the flywheel end of the crankshaft were allowed to twist in one direction and then the other while rotating at certain critical speeds, the oscillating angular movements would take up the backlash between meshing gear teeth in the transmission system. Consequently, the teeth of the driving gears would be moving between the drive (pressure side) and non-drive tooth profiles of the driven gears.
A very small amount of lubricant on the facings will burn off due to the generated heat. This will only slightly darken the facings, but providing polished facings remain so that the grain of the material can be clearly distinguished, it does not reduce its effectiveness. Large amounts of lubricant gaining access to the friction surfaces may result in the following: Fig. 4, which increases the torque capacity of clutches using these driven plates. The capability of operating at high working temperatures of up to 440 C for relatively long periods without showing signs of fade.
Further rearward movement of the tractor towards the trailer will swing the jaw round until it traps and encloses the kingpin. The 26 Fig. 22 (a and b) Fifth wheel coupling assembly jaws on either side.
