10:11. Driving belt of the generator

MAPLE NOT RIDGE BELT

Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Disconnect an air branch pipe and the air filter and an air chamber or the case of a throttle and remove it.
2. The correct tension of a belt provides its long operation. Do not draw a driving belt of the generator as in this case generator bearings can fail.
3. Periodically check a condition of a belt of the generator. If the belt is worn-out, torn or tousled, it needs to be replaced. It is recommended to have a spare driving belt of the generator in the car.
4. On models with the amplifier of steering the driving belt of the generator also puts the pump of the amplifier of steering in action.
5. For removal of a driving belt of the generator on l models 1,8 and 2,0 first of all take off a driving belt of the pump of the amplifier of steering.
6. Weaken bolts and nuts of fastening of the generator so that the generator could be moved to the engine.
7. Take off a driving belt of the generator from pulleys.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Using a belt of the required standard size, establish it around pulleys. Adjust a tension of a driving belt of the generator, moving the generator from the engine, and tighten bolts of fastening of the generator.

Adjustment

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For check of a tension of a driving belt of the generator it is necessary to use special devices, however manually it is possible to define a generator tension approximately. For this purpose, using moderate effort of a hand, press in the middle of the longest branch of a belt of the generator and check that the deflection of a belt makes about 13 mm.
2. Weaken bolts and nuts of fastening of the generator and, using wooden whetstone, take away the generator from the engine before achievement of the required tension of a belt of the generator and tighten nuts and bolts.
3. In the presence establish and adjust a tension of a driving belt of the pump of the amplifier of steering.
4. Establish an air branch pipe.
5. At installation of a new belt in process extra earnings it will stretch therefore it is necessary to check and to repeatedly adjust a belt tension through 400 km of a run.

RIDGE MAPLE BELT

On later models with the amplifier of steering the belt with the automatic machine the chesky mechanism of a tension is established ridge maple. After installation adjustment of a tension of a belt is not required.

Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the air filter and air a zabornik.
2. If the belt is repeatedly established, chalk note the direction of rotation of a belt.
3. Using a wrench, turn a roller of the automatic mechanism of a tension clockwise if to look on the right side of the car, and record it in this situation. After reduction of a tension of a driving belt remove it from pulleys and return the tension mechanism to a starting position.
4. Support by a jack through wooden whetstone the engine.
5. Under the car unscrew the right support of fastening of the power unit from a body.
6. Lower a jack so that it was possible to take a driving belt between an arm and a body.

Installation

The correct arrangement of a ridge maple belt on the engine

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Pass a new belt between an arm and a body and lift the engine in a starting position.
2. Using a tap of the corresponding size, clear a carving for bolts of fastening of a support of the power unit. Apply on a carving of bolts of fastening of a support of the power unit a thin layer of structure, to a prepyatstvo yushchy to unscrewing of bolts, then screw in bolts and tighten them the required moment.
3. Using a wrench, turn a tension mechanism roller counterclockwise and establish a driving belt on pulleys (see the drawing). Correctly place a belt on pulleys and release a tension mechanism roller.
4. Install the air filter and an air inlet.
