PIRATE DISCS

UNDER THE TYUMEN VIEW OF FREQUENTLY SELL CLUTCHES, WHICH ORIGIN IS UNKNOWN …

TEXT / MAXIM NET

The most massive fake and, accordingly, the sales leader among the fake transmission parts is the Zhiguli driven disk. It is not difficult to distinguish it from the original. The copy number on the metal part is squeezed out (photo 1), while there is no marking on the factory disk damper for VAZ models. The only identification mark is a green plate with the company logo and the Rostest badge. In addition, the “left” product has a different fastening of the plates connecting the pads and the damper. And the rivets on the discs are different: the original ones are copper, the fakes have brass ones.

The Tyumen plant supplies parts to Izhmash, but this disk for Orbit (photo 2) is unlikely to get on the conveyor - a fake! At the place where the factory data should be, the extruded text - “side of the flywheel” flaunts. A paper plate is also missing … There are traces of a cutter on the damper hub, and the factory part has a smooth surface.

The differences between the “native” and the fake Volga disc are the same as those of the mentioned nodes: marking, processing of the hub. But the rivets on the fake are set roughly (photo 3). A little “ferodo” will be erased - and they will pull up the pressure plate.

Let's move from the driven drives to the leading ones designed for the Togliatti “Samaras”. The impostor has numbers on the balancing weights, the “native” plates are not marked (photo 4).

Counterfeiters very rarely call the manufacturer whose name they are hiding under - usually the origin of the product (supposedly from Tyumen) is only talked about during the sale. On the factory "baskets" the name of the enterprise is squeezed out and the already mentioned company label is glued. True, sometimes a piece of paper is lost along the way from the factory warehouse to the store counter.

A copy of the drive disc for the rear-wheel drive VAZ models is easy to distinguish by similar signs. But they have some individual traits. For example, the heel on which the release bearing rests is mounted at the factory with copper fingers. Handicraftsmen use different technology and other materials, so the pins on the original and counterfeit differ by flaring and color. The damper springs are also unequal - it is not difficult to find out the origin of the product by the shape of the holes between the petals (photo 5).

There are also restored nodes. For example, we wanted to sell the “new” leading disk of Moskvich-412. It is enough to look at the side facing the flywheel to make sure that the sellers are incompetent or dishonest. The pressure plate was inaccurately updated on a lathe, in addition, the flaring and material of the fastening rivets are different from the factory ones. The curved edges of the heel indicate a close acquaintance with the release bearing (photo 6).
