GENERAL INFORMATION

Arrangement of the left arm of fastening of the transmission

Arrangement of nuts of fastening of a back arm of the power unit to the lower frame

Arrangement of bolts of fastening of a back arm of the power unit to the transmission

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a weight wire from the accumulator. Remove a cowl.
2. Tighten the emergency brake, then lift a forward part of the car and record on supports.
3. Merge cooling liquid from the cooling system and remove hoses from a radiator, and on models with the automatic transmission also remove hoses from the heat exchanger.
4. Merge engine oil and unscrew an oil filter.
5. Remove the air filter, airpro-waters, the block of a heater of the carburetor or the case of a throttle depending on model. On models with the carburetor remove a branch pipe of supply of the warmed-up air from an inlet collector to the carburetor. On models with the automatic transmission disconnect additional electric sockets and hoses from the carburetor.
6. Remove the generator.
7. On models with the amplifier of steering remove the pump.
8. Disconnect a vacuum hose of the vacuum amplifier of brakes from an inlet collector.
9. Disconnect an accelerator cable from the lever of a butterfly valve and a cable cover from an arm on the carburetor or an inlet collector depending on model.
10. On models with the carburetor disconnect hoses of supply of cooling liquid from the case of the automatic air gate. Disconnect electric sockets from a heater of the automatic air gate and I will corrode from a winding of the gate of system of advance. Disconnect a vacuum tube of the block of a heater from the carburetor.
11. Disconnect a vacuum tube of the sensor of pressure from the carburetor.
12. Remove hoses of supply of cooling liquid from an inlet collector or the case of a throttle depending on model.
13. Disconnect fuel hoses from the fuel pump and a steam separator on models with the carburetor or from топливоп rovod on the right side of a motor compartment on other models. Close the ends of tubes and hoses the corresponding traffic jams.
14. Disconnect an electrical wiring and sockets and remove a plait of wires of system of injection of fuel. Release clamps of electric sockets of fuel nozzles and, having pulled for a casing of a plait of wires, remove it from fuel nozzles.
15. Disconnect hoses of supply of cooling liquid to a heater from the union in a back part of the block of cylinders
16. Disconnect electric sockets from the following sensors and knots:
— starter;
— ignition distributor;
— oil pressure sensor;
— oil temperature sensor;
— sensor of the top dead point;
— oil level sensor;
— detonation sensor;
— sensor of temperature of cooling liquid;
— sensor of the index of temperature of the engine.
17. In conclusion check that all hoses, pipes and electric sockets are disconnected from the engine.
18. Working in a motor compartment, remove the mechanism of the choice of transfers (see the corresponding description in section 12 or in section 13).

On models with the automatic transmission unscrew one of bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer and, using the steel core inserted through an opening under a bolt block a drive plate.
27. Access to a pulley of a bent shaft is most convenient from under an arch of the right forward wheel after removal of a wheel.
28. Disconnect the internal ends of power shafts from the transmission (see the corresponding description in section 14). At a detachment of power shafts leak of oil from the transmission therefore the sootvetstvo needs to use a yushchy container is possible and to close openings for power shafts traffic jams. Using a soft wire, tie the internal ends of power shafts to a body.
29. Hook on the engine captures of the load-lifting mechanism and raise so that the weight of the engine was perceived by the load-lifting mechanism.
