2.11. Check, adjustment of a tension and replacement of a driving belt


Examine driving belts on all length from both parties on existence of cracks or wear tracks.

Wear of a maple belt
1. Wear of a lateral surface

2. Strong istirany surfaces

3. Cracks

4. Stratification

5. The polished surface

6. Pollution by oil

7. Gap

Wear of a ridge belt

1. Admissible wear

2. Cross-section cracks on belt edges

3. Inadmissible wear

4. There are no adjacent sites of edges of a belt in length more than 1 cm

5. Cracks parallel to edges of a belt

Measure a tension of belts by means of special measuring tools and compare the obtained data with technical characteristics. If you have no special tool, check a tension, having pressed on a belt in the middle between two pulleys and having measured a belt deviation. The belt should deviate on 6 mm if the distance between centers pulleys makes 18–28 see. The belt should deviate on 12 mm if distance between centers pulleys 30–40 see.

Measurement of a deviation of a belt by means of a ruler

1. Belt deviation

2. Check, that the ruler was perpendicular to a lath

Tension adjustment

1. For adjustment of a tension of the driving generator and the compressor, weaken a sharnirny bolt (And) the generator in the left forward corner of the block of cylinders. Weaken a lock bolt and turn an adjusting bolt (In) clockwise to pull a belt or counter-clockwise, to weaken. Measure a belt tension. If necessary carry out repeated adjustment.
2. For adjustment of a tension of a driving belt of the pump of system of hydrostrengthening of a steering, weaken an adjusting bolt and turn the pump towards the engine or on the contrary to weaken or increase a belt tension respectively.


Weaken a tension of a driving belt and remove it from pulleys. If one belt demands replacement, it is recommended to replace other belts also.
