9.11. Check and adjustment of turns of idling

GENERAL INFORMATION

For check and adjustment of turns of idling it is necessary to use the tachometer working at a photo cell. The tachometer has to react to light reflected by the aluminum foil pasted on a pulley of a bent shaft.

Measurement of a gap between the adjusting screw and a control lever of the fuel pump on the engine of 1,7 l

Adjustment of a gap
For adjustment of a gap weaken a lock-nut and rotate the adjusting screw.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Warm up the engine up to the working temperature, check turns of idling and cool the engine.
2. On the cold engine check a gap between the screw of adjustment and a control lever of the fuel pump. At a temperature of cooling liquid of 20 °C the gap has to be ranging from 0,8 to 1,1 mm. For adjustment of a gap weaken a lock-nut and, rotating the adjusting screw, establish the required gap then establish a lock-nut (see rice. Measurement of a gap between the adjusting screw and a control lever of the fuel pump on the engine of 1,7 l, Adjustment of a gap).
3. Start the engine and check idling turns. If turns of idling differ from demanded, weaken a lock-nut and, rotating the adjusting screw, establish the required turns then tighten a lock-nut.
4. Warm up the engine and check idling turns. In the course of warming up of the engine the gap between the adjusting screw and a control lever of the fuel pump has to decrease gradually before full contact of the screw with the lever. Otherwise there is a damage to system of cold start of the engine, and it is necessary to make repair at a maintenance stage.
