12. Steering

Steering consists of a steering wheel, a steering column, steering tooth rack gearing and steering drafts. The steering wheel is fixed on a shaft of a steering column and transfers effort to tooth rack gearing.

From each party the gear lath of steering transfer is connected by the spherical hinge to cross steering draft. Steering drafts transmit effort through steering rod ends and rotary fists to forward wheels. Such design of steering has the easy course in the absence of a side play at turn of a steering wheel from an emphasis against the stop.

For simplification of turn of a steering wheel establish the hydraulic amplifier of steering consisting of the pump of the amplifier of the steering put in action by a belt from a bent shaft, a tank with liquid, hoses and tubes, and steering transfer.
