|Measuring wheel bearing clearance|
|73||Measure the wheel bearing clearance with a dial indicator|
(applies only to greased hubs).
|Dual wheels bearing check|
|74||Raise the rear end, release the parking brake and check the wheel bearing clearance.|
|Checking axle distance, bogie|
|75||(to be carried out only in connection with tyre wear)|
Raise the front end when checking/adjusting wheel bearing clearance. Turn the wheel back and forth while alternately pushing-pulling it. Clearance should be 0.04-0.12 mm. Wheel removal is recommended in connection with adjustments since this makes it easier to establish the bearing clearance.
Check rear-wheel bearing clearance by prying the wheel up with a crow bar in one of the holes. If play is noticeable, the bearing should be adjusted. Clearance should be 0.04-0.12 mm.
Bogie axle distance must not differ more than 1 mm between the right and left sides of the drive wheel hubs. The distance is adjusted with shims placed next to the rear attachment for the reaction rods.
