Removal and installation of the pallet of a case

L engines 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8

See. Removal and installation of the pallet of a case — models with the cast pallet.

Pay attention that on l models 1.4 and 1.6 the pallet is established through laying which at assembly is subject to replacement without fail.


At installation on l models 1.4 and 1.6 hermetic is put on an interfaced surface of the block of cylinders in regions of a pristykovka of the case of the oil pump and a cover of the back radical bearing.

On models of 1.8 l the hermetic pillow in thickness should be imposed about 2.5 mm on all interfaced surface of a stykovochny flange, in a place of a pristykovka of a cover of the fifth radical bearing the thickness of a pillow should be increased to 3.5 mm.

Engines of 2.0 l

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Execute procedures — see. Removal and installation of the pallet of a case — Removal — after an electroconducting detachment from the sensor of level of oil release a clamp and push the sensor in the pallet.
  2. Turn out bolts of fastening of the bottom section of the pallet to the main cast section. Remove the bottom section and its sealing laying — try not to damage sensor electroconducting.
  3. For removal of the main section of the pallet it is necessary to remove before the oil filter (see. Head Routine maintenance).

At installation it will be reasonable to replace the filter.

  1. On models from RKPP disconnect from a box the right power shaft (see. Head Coupling and power shafts). For the purpose of ensuring adequate access remove from a box case a flange of the bearing of the right shaft.
  2. Turn out bolts of fastening of a landing flange of the pallet to a transmission case.
  3. Turn out bolts of fastening of a maslozabornik to the bridge of covers of radical bearings and to the oil pump.
  4. In stages evenly weaken, then turn out bolts of the main section of the pallet to the block of cylinders / to the oil pump. If the pallet "became attached" and does not give in, slightly обстучите it from sides a hammer with soft the brisk. Lower the pallet and take it from under the car assembled with a maslozabornik. Remove and will throw out sealing laying — at assembly laying is subject to replacement without fail.

Installation

Bolts of fastening of the pallet are subject to replacement without fail.


 PERFORMANCE ORDER

  1. Carefully smooth out interfaced surfaces of the pallet, a maslozabornik and the block, having completely removed from them dirt and oil traces. Carving openings in the pallet clean from traces of old anaerobny hermetic.
  2. Replace a sealing ring of a maslozabornik.
  3. Make sure of absoluteness of purity and dryness of interfaced surfaces of the main section of the pallet and the block of cylinders, remove traces of anaerobny hermetic from a carving part of fixing bolts.
  4. Put a hermetic layer on an interfaced surface of the block of cylinders round the case of the oil pump and a cover of the back radical bearing.
  5. Lay new laying on the main section of the pallet and put some drops of anaerobny hermetic on a carving part of fixing bolts.
  6. Press pallet assembly with a maslozabornik and sealing laying to the block and acquire fixing bolts. Moving from the center to edges in diagonal sequence, gradually tighten bolts of fastening of casting with demanded effort. Also with demanded effort tighten bolts of fastening of a maslozabornik.
  7. Tighten with demanded effort bolts of fastening of a flange of the main section of the pallet to a transmission case.
  8. Establish a reception pipe of system of production of the fulfilled gases (see. Head of the Power supply system and release). Establish a flange of the bearing of a power shaft.
  9. Establish a power shaft (see. Head Coupling and power shafts).
  10. Make sure of absoluteness of purity and dryness of interfaced surfaces of the bottom and main sections of the pallet, lay on the bottom section new laying and press assembly to the main assembly, - do not forget to establish a new sealing ring on the socket of the sensor of level of oil and to plant the socket in the main section of the pallet.
  11. Acquire new bolts of fastening of a bath of the pallet, then, moving in diagonal sequence from the center to edges, tighten bolts with effort of the first stage. Further in the same order hold on fixture on a corner of a stage 2.
  12. Establish the new oil filter.
  13. Connect electroconducting to the sensor of level of oil.
  14. Lower the car and fill in fresh impellent oil (see. Head Routine maintenance).
