dc.description.abstract The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a hydraulic hybrid system for delivery trucks. The barrel-valveplate is a component that is frequently changed due to constant tests to the proprietary bent-axis Gen 2 pumps of the hydraulic system. Installation of the barrel-valveplate includes aligning piston-con-rod assemblies into barrel bores, aligning and mating CV joint assemblies, and the installation of a backplate assembly. The CV joint installation is very difficult due to the piston-con-rod assemblies surrounding it. Thus, Dr. Mike Delduca, from the EPA contacted us to design a removable tool that will facilitate CV joint alignment and reduce the alignment time to less than two minutes. en
