Introducing the ATV, our constant author S. Pletneva from the city of ocher, Perm territory. Once they built the machine indicative of the increased level of development and skills of its Creator. However, judge for yourself…
A year passed since then, when leaving the garage, tried out your first ATV with rear driving wheels (see “M-K” № 6, 2010). And then came the thought and not whether to make the now all-wheel-drive ATV (from the English. All Terrain Vehicle — ATV; this international designation received a similar machine).
Fortunately, this time turned up a buyer for the buggy (see “M-K” № 1 for 2010), and the money went to a new project.
Year of work for 3 — 4 hours after work and on weekends — and the new machine was ready for testing, there was only a small (and I would say enjoyable) revision: connection of lighting equipment, installation of ignition lock, rear view mirrors and other stuff.
Power unit for my ATV was the engine from the car “Oka” is a 32-horsepower, two-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled. And if for a car of its power was often not enough, for kvadratika should be enough with a vengeance.
The machine frame is spatial, welded. Its basic elements (two pairs of members: upper and lower) are made of circular tubes of the type VGP-25 (water and gas supply tube 25 mm in diameter with a wall thickness of 3.2 mm), minor (struts, crossmember, etc.) of VGT-20. Spars — bent: the lower horizontal, upper — vertical. Bent pipe by bending, “the cold.” Eyelet (pair of ears) for mounting levers and suspension was welded to the frame directly, and various brackets — installation of components and assemblies (“place”).
1 — front wheel (of the car “Chevrolet-Niva”, 2);
2-the engine (from the car “Oka”);
3 — drivetrain front wheel drive;
4 — gear shift (from the car “Oka”);
5 — transmission drive rear wheels;
6 — frame;
7 — rear wheel (from the car “Chevrolet-Niva”,2);
8 — fuel tank (20 litre canister);
9 — rear trunk;
11 —spinal focus of the passenger (the headrest from the car “Oka”);
12 — saddle;
13 — clutch basket (from the car “Oka”);
14 — lever transmission;
15 — body kit (fiberglass);
16 — the wheel (from a motorcycle “Ural”);
17 — instrument panel (from the car “Oka”);
18 — front trunk
Transmission of vehicle — a kind. Although the car is four-wheel drive but transfer case in it. As you know, in “eye” the engine is located transversely, but on the ATV it is installed along. This allowed us to direct the output shafts from the gearbox (transmission) is not on the right and the left wheel (as in car) and the front and rear axles. That’s only the powertrain mated to the basket of the clutch and transmission had to be shifted relative to the longitudinal plane of symmetry a little to the left to decrease the horizontal angle of the longitudinal hinge shaft of the transmission. Well, their vertical angles were thus small.
