2.2.4.1. Auxiliary driving belts

GENERAL INFORMATION

In view of features of use and a material of which driving belts are made, they are subject to wear eventually therefore they are necessary for checking regularly.

Check

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. When the engine is muffled, examine driving belts on all length on existence of cracks or stratification. It will be necessary for you to turn a cranked shaft of the engine (by means of the clockwork handle) to shift belt sites from pulleys and carefully it to examine. Overwind a belt to examine both parties of a belt. Also examine a belt on availability of raspletenny fibers and the used-up places which look as glossy spots. Check pulleys on existence of cracks, deformation or corrosion.
2. If the driving belt is worn-out or damaged, it is necessary to replace it.
3. Check a tension of all driving belts and if it is necessary, adjust.

Replacement

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Turn off fixing bolts and remove a protective guard from below the engine.

DRIVING BELT OF THE GENERATOR

Removal and installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove the fan of cooling of a radiator, being guided by the instructions provided in subsection 4.3.
2. Remove a driving belt of the pump of system of the hydraulic booster of a steering or the compressor of central air of air.
3. Turn off the bottom fixing bolt of the generator and a lock-nut of an adjusting bolt, then turn off an adjusting nut to weaken a tension of a driving belt. Remove a driving belt from pulleys and remove it from the engine.
4. Establish a new belt on a place and establish it on pulleys. By means of an adjusting nut adjust a tension of a driving belt so that when pressing by a thumb on a driving belt in the middle of the longest site it caved in no more than on 10 mm. After the driving belt will be correctly tense, tighten the bottom fixing bolt of the generator till the demanded moment of an inhaling, then tighten a regulator lock-nut till the demanded moment of an inhaling.
5. Establish a driving belt of the pump of system of the hydraulic booster of a steering or the compressor of central air of air into place.
6. Establish the fan of cooling of a radiator, being guided by the instructions provided in subsection 4.3.

DRIVING BELT OF THE PUMP OF SYSTEM OF THE HYDRAULIC BOOSTER OF THE STEERING

Removal and installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. If it is necessary, remove a driving belt of the compressor of central air of air.
2. Turn off fixing bolts of the pump of system of the hydraulic booster of a steering and turn off a nut and a bolt, fixing an adjusting clip to a pump arm.
3. Turn off a lock-nut, then turn off an adjusting nut to remove a tension from a driving belt. Remove a driving belt from pulleys and remove it from the engine.
4. Establish a new driving belt on a place and establish it on pulleys.
5. Establish a driving belt of the compressor of central air of air (if it is necessary) and pull it.
6. Pull a driving belt, having twirled an adjusting nut so that when pressing by a thumb on a driving belt in the middle of the longest site it caved in no more than on 10 mm. After the driving belt will be tense, tighten a coupling bolt and fixing bolts of the pump till the demanded moment of an inhaling, then tighten a lock-nut till the demanded moment of an inhaling. Establish a protective guard of the engine and reliably tighten its fixing bolts.

DRIVING BELT OF THE COMPRESSOR OF CENTRAL AIR OF AIR

Removal and installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Turn off fixing bolts of the compressor and weaken a bolt, a fixing clip of an adjusting nut to the compressor. Turn off a lock-nut, then turn off an adjusting nut to remove a tension of a driving belt. Remove a driving belt from pulleys and remove it from the engine.
2. Establish a new driving belt on a place and establish it on pulleys. Pull a belt, having twirled an adjusting nut so that when pressing by a thumb on a driving belt in the middle of the longest site it caved in no more than on 10 mm. After the driving belt will be correctly tense, tighten a coupling bolt, bolts of fastening of the compressor and a lock-nut till the demanded moment of an inhaling. Check and if it is necessary, adjust a tension of a driving belt of the pump of system of the hydraulic booster of a steering. Establish a protective guard from below the engine and reliably tighten fixing bolts.
