Hello This will be an overview of my Gear Drive system, also a way for people to get advice and troubleshoot any issue.
The Gear Drive is ship pre-assemble. included are :
2- inner wheel bearing 9.525mm x 28mm
2- 3mm x 3mm by 20mm key 8- M4 x 12mm motor screws 8- M4 washers 3- Wheel hub plates 1- Syringe to use as lube applicator
For lubrication I am using, Finish line premium grease the 3.5Oz. Here Just use 1 Oz of lubricant for each Drive.
Another alternatine can be the archoil Here
Now to install your motor. The first step is to remove the screws holding the cover in place
No need to remove the bearing or spacers.
Next install the motor. The phase wires come out towards the kingpin side of the hanger.
Then install the keyway
And spur gear.
Next is to position the Gears. 1st make sure the gears are aligned properly with respect to each other.
2nd Proper gear Backslash, this will be done with the aid of a strip of paper folded in 2.
Make sure the wheel gear is properly secure see picture, this will prevent deflections by the gear.
Place the paper between the gears and press the motor gear agains the wheel gear.
one of the teeth from the motor gear should be aligned in between 2 teeth of the wheel gear, see pic.
Next press the motor gear against the wheel gear, do not over do it, just push slightly firm so the gears do not have any play when the paper is in between the teeth.
At this point apply blue Loctite to the set screws in the motor gear.
REPEAT THIS STEPS FOR THE OTHER MOTOR AND GEAR BEFORE CONTINUING.
Once both motors are aligned and the backslash is properly place, MAKE SURE TO DO YOUR MOTOR DETECTION.
Next step is to reassemble the gear and cover.
The speed washer is the first thing to be installed.
if your drive came with a 12mm bearing and have an sleeve, install it now.
install the wheel gear and rest of components in this order. Gear—medium spacer — long spacer — O-ring
Apply BLUE LOCTITE to all threaded holes for the cover.
Optional apply a super thin layer of silicone on the edge to the Gear Cover to form a gasket.
Position the cover on the drive and tighten the screws, do not over do it, tighten just firm and let the loctite do its magic.
Now the V-Ring, At this point you will need to apply a tiny loop of lubricant around the Gear Hub.
Make sure the V-Ring is flush with the edge of the Gear Hub, do not push it inward.
Next Lubrication. For this use the finish line premium grease 3.5oz Insert 1 Oz in the provided syringe,Red arrow.
And apply the grease by removing the screw from the lubrication port on the top, press the syringe firmly agains the hole and squeeze the lubricant into the Gear Drive.
Last is to install the wheel Hub plates to the wheels.
- Remove the air from the wheels.
- Remove nuts from wheel screws.
- install the Hub Plate in the place of the screws.
Repeat this steps for the other wheel and you are good to go.
