Running gear repair

We stored all removed chassis components until further defects detection activities.

We continued detailed defects detection of the dismantled rear axle.

All rubber bushings of the suspension were damaged and required replacement.

We cleaned and tested disassembled components.

We prepared components of the rear axle for sand blasting and powder coating.

Removed components of the front axle we disassembled for detailed inspection.

Races of the front suspension bearings were damaged, so need for replacement bearings was obvious.

Inner races of the needle bearings of the front hubs were damaged.

Seals of the front shock absorbers were disintegrated.

Inner cavities of PV7 were full with greasy mud.

After cleaning inner mechanical structure of the shock dampers, units appeared suitable for overhaul.
