GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

DESCRIPTION: Power trains problem diagnosis and repair.
TAUGHT: Winter (odd years)
CONTENT AND TOPICS: The study of the power train has never been more important than it is today. The agricultural and industrial equipment has some of the most complex power trains in use today. Power trains include the following: clutches, mechanical transmissions, hydraulic assist transmissions, hydrostatic drives, torque converters, differentials, final drives, power take-off, and other special drives.
* How power trains work.
* Why they may fail.
* What to do if they do fail.
* Power trains theory and procedures of complete transmission overhaul and rebuilding.
* Problem diagnosis and testing.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: 1. Obtain a BYU-Idaho permit.
2. Understand the safety of the equipment.
3. Understand and service power trains.
4. Identify major parts and explain the basic functions of clutches, mechanical transmissions, hydraulic assist transmissions, and hydrostatic drives.
5. Explain and identify the parts and operations of torque coverters, differentials, final drives, power take-offs, and special drives.
REQUIREMENTS: A BYU-Idaho driving permit is required before students are allowed to operate University agricultural machinery.
