Crankshaft bearing

THE Crankshaft of the car is one of the most important components of an engine. It is responsible for converting the linear motion of the pistons into rotary motion that drives the wheels. But have you ever heard of the car's lesser-known cousin, the crankshaft?

Automotive crankshaft bearings are a smaller, auxiliary crankshaft axis used in some engines to drive components such as the alternator, power steering pump and air conditioning compressor. Sometimes also called an auxiliary or secondary axis. This component is usually located above or below the main crankshaft and is driven by a belt or chain connected to the main crankshaft.

Automotive crankshaft bearings are designed to handle the lighter loads of ancillary components, allowing the main crankshaft to focus on powering its engine and wheel movement. Automotive crankshaft bearings come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the design of the engine and the specific accessories it must drive. It is often made of steel or aluminum and is precision machined to ensure smooth and efficient operation.

Crankshaft bearing

The use of automotive crankshaft bearings offers many advantages. First, it reduces stress on the main crankshaft, which can lead to longer engine life and reduced maintenance costs. Second, it allows more efficient use of engine power, as the main crankshaft can focus solely on driving the wheels.

However, using automotive crankshaft bearings is not without its challenges. A possible problem is belt or chain slippage, which can affect the operation of its components accessory. Another challenge is proper alignment, as the rack must be perfectly aligned with the main crankshaft to avoid excessive wear or damage.
