Title:
BRAKE TORQUE PLATE AND INSTALLATION METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2004001253
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A brake torque plate (14) and an installation method for fixedly attaching the plate (14) to an axle tube (11), includes the plate (14) formed with an opening (24) and a continuous cut (25) extending between the plate (14) peripheral edge (23) and the opening (24), wherein the diameter of the opening (24) is smaller than that of the axle tube (11). The cut (25) enables the torque plate (14) to be temporarily expanded for installation on the axle tube (11) by spreading means (26) until the bore diameter is larger than that of the axle tube (11). Upon mounting of the torque plate (14) on the axle tube (11), the spreading means (26) is removed to reduce the diameter of the opening (24), thereby creating an interference fit between the torque plate (14) and the axle tube (11) and minimizing or eliminating the gap between the plate opening (24) and the axle tube to ensure perpendicularity between the axle tube (11) center line and the torque plate inboard (22) and outboard faces (21).
