Installation Guide

1. Installation instructions. The use of steering oil pump: choose the right oil pump according to the vehicle performance requirements and power steering gear basic parameters.

2.  the use of oil should be full of rudder steering system according to standard solution. 26 square millimeter / second gear oil viscosity (temperature 50 degree C), the recommended freezing point is less than -35 degree C. Dexron or Mercon-M and recommended standards. The oil temperature of the power steering device should be at -40 degree C and 120 degree C.

3. filter: net pressure filter.

4. when the power steering gear is installed, it is not used to adjust it.

Note: the tubing should be installed correctly. Do not confuse import and export, otherwise the power steering device will be damaged. Keep the internal cleaning of the power steering gear. The power steering device is driven by the oil pump's automobile engine, so the car can't slide when it is out of fire, otherwise it will cause the steering problem. Drivers can't limit the power steering device to more than 5 seconds. Please take it as your limit, otherwise the oil pump may be damaged. The spool is adjusted to the best condition, and the rest should not be removed. When oil seal and garbage ring are removed, repair should not be used again. Oil refuel should be the same as the original. If the hydraulic system is broken and can't work, the driver should increase the power to turn the car for the time being. When assembling and disassembling the power steering system, please do not strike or be intense. Please keep clean and prohibit any foreign material steering system.

1. Power steering principle.
A hydraulic device that USES the engine to power the steering. Namely according to help the engine driven hydraulic pump, hydraulic and effect on the power cylinder piston, to make the pinion and rack to a support force, the size of the auxiliary power and function is related to the pressure on the piston. Therefore, the need for greater steering force must be increased. The hydraulic change is controlled by a control valve connected to the steering spindle.
2. Power steering function.
Reduce the operating force on the steering wheel when the car turns; Limit the deceleration of the steering system; To provide the necessary assistants when turning in place; The steering sensitivity is high, the control is light, the force of the steering wheel is small, and the labor intensity of the driver is reduced. Limit the vehicle speed to have better steering stability; When the steering device fails, the mechanical steering system can be maintained effectively. It can absorb the impact of the road on the front wheels, and reduce the anti-impact and "hand-to-hand phenomenon" of the steering wheel. (power steering system consists of steering tank, steering pump, steering pipe and power steering.)
3. The power steering is the rotary valve structure (hydraulic directional machine)
It is generally performed by rotating the engine with the engine, and the oil is pumped out of the tank to the power steering valve. When the control valve is in the middle of the normal opening, the oil is directly returned to the steering tank through the control valve.


1. Middle position
Car straight line driving (steering wheel fixed), oil pump to supply hydraulic oil from the oil inlet, after rotary valve of pre-opening gap. Flow around two working chamber, because the rotary valve, thus working hydraulic steering gear two same does not produce power, the hydraulic oil from the oil return back to the tank mouth, see the principle diagram of the gear and rack type power steering gear.
2. Steering process
When turning the steering wheel, the pre-opening gap between the input shaft and the valve sleeve changes, resulting in the oil pressure difference between the hydraulic oil flowing to the two working chamber and the steering resistance. The oil pressure difference is used to push the rack piston on the rack piston to overcome the steering resistance and produce the displacement, thus driving the steering rod to realize the front wheel steering.
3. Return process
When the steering is completed, the force on the steering wheel disappears. Torsion bar within the power steering gear and the car front wheel automatically back to the positive moment, under the action of two poor working oil chamber of hydraulic steering disappear, sports steering wheel to the straight position, until back to the car driving straight position.
4. Road sense effect
The road sense effect is the ability to turn to feeling. When the driver forces on the steering wheel, it also ACTS on the torsion bar on the steering gear to produce torsional deformation; The deformation depends on the steering resistance of the wheel. When the steering resistance is large, the deformation is also increased. Therefore, the driver can judge the change of the steering resistance according to the size of the force on the steering wheel, so as to obtain the "road sense" effect.
Principle of the steering mechanism (as shown in the figure)
The steering gear is pinion, and the back of the gear has an adjusting semicircle, which is pressed against the rack by spring pressure, so that the rack is always in contact with the pinion with appropriate force. The clearance of the steering mechanism is the adjustment of the semicircle and spring automatically on the lower side of the rack.

2) check the oil pressure.
The failure of the power steering system is usually related to the difficulty of steering with no auxiliary force. In this case, if it is to be repaired, the first thing to do is to figure out whether the problem is on the pump or on the case. To do this, a pressure gauge can be used to check the car.

The transmission characteristics of gear rack type steering gear.

The gear rack type steering device has simple structure, convenient manufacturing process, high transmission efficiency and complete sealing device, so it is reliable. It is widely used in early foreign passenger cars, but because of the smaller transmission ratio and limited use, there is more use in the micro cars. In the pinion type steering gear, the steering shaft ends with a helical cylindrical gear, which is engaged with the rack mounted on the shell, and the shell is fixed on the frame. The rack is connected by two ball joints and two separate tie rods, which directly drive the bar and turn the car.
Gear and rack type steering gear in use, when the parts wear a gap, by compensating the spring pre-tightening force of clamp platen, remain the best meshing state to keep the gear and rack, so that the steering wheel in a proper swimming clearance, improve control sensitivity.
5. Advantages of pinion and rack type steering gear.
Adopt gear rack type steering, because do not turn rocker arm shaft and rocker arm and so on parts, the structure is simple, easy to arrange, the craft is convenient, and the service life is long, the transmission is reliable. Therefore, it is widely used in the light and micro cars with the front wheel independent suspension.
Vi. Installation instructions.
1. Use of steering pump:
According to the performance requirements of the vehicle and the basic parameters of the power steering gear, the oil pump is reasonably selected.
2. Working oil:
The steering system should be added to the steering fluid by standard. Suggest a viscosity of about 26 was/S (under the condition of 50 ℃), below the freezing point - 35 ℃, automotive automatic transmission oil with low foam properties. Recommended standard for the oil: Dexron Ⅲ or Mercon - M. The oil temperature in the range of power steering system to 40 ℃ ~ 120 ℃. (with no Dexron or mercon-m oil, you can use no. 8 hydraulic transmission oil instead.)
3. Filter: mesh filter.
4. When the power steering is installed, the steering device itself does not need to be adjusted.

Matters needing attention:
* the inlet and outlet of the steering pipe should not be wrongly installed, otherwise the power steering will be damaged.
* the power steering system must be kept clean.
* the steering gear is powered by a car engine, so the car is not allowed to flameout. Otherwise, it will lead to heavy steering, which is prone to accidents.
* during operation, the steering wheel should be avoided to the limit position, generally not exceeding 5 seconds. At this time, the steering wheel should be rotated slightly, otherwise the oil pump will be easily damaged, affecting the life of the steering system.
* the valve core assembly has been adjusted to the optimum state, and the cylinder pins and other parts shall not be disassembled.
* the sealing parts such as oil seal and sealing ring removed during maintenance shall not be used again.
* when the hydraulic oil is added, the new hydraulic oil should be consistent with the original hydraulic oil brand of the power steering system, and it is strictly prohibited to mix oil.
* if the hydraulic system fails to work properly, the driver will only need to increase his hand power and can still rely on the mechanical steering to realize the steering of the car.
* the maintenance and maintenance of power steering gear should be carried out at our company's service station.
* when loading and removing the steering system, it is strictly forbidden to knock or impact with any force, and should be taken lightly. When assembling, it must be cleaned, and no impurities are allowed to enter the steering system.
Proper use and maintenance of power steering system.
