GENERAL INFORMATION

Various types of a flywheel

1 – early type – a flat disk;

2 – the flywheel type with deepening which was established on some models since 1992

On all models with the mechanical transmission the one-disk dry coupling consisting of five basic elements is established: frictional disk, press disk, diaphragm spring, casing and release bearing.

Since 1992 on some models the new type of a flywheel with deepening in the center is established. What promotes improvement of work of coupling and noise reduction.
