3.1.7. Gas-distributing belt and asterisks


Gas-distributing belt

1. Top cover of a gas-distributing belt
2. Camshaft asterisk
3. Top intermediate pulley
4. Spring
5. Top intermediate pulley
6. Asterisk of the oil pump
7. Asterisk of a cranked shaft
8. Directing a gas-distributing belt
9. Gas-distributing belt
10. Bottom cover of a gas-distributing belt
11. Pulley of a cranked shaft


1. Disconnect a wire of the minus plug of the accumulator.
2. Block back wheels and put the car on the hand brake.
3. Lift and fix a forward part of the car.
4. Remove the right forward wheel and laying of an arch of a wheel.
5. Remove a broad tank of system of cooling of the engine.
6. Unscrew candles and remove driving belts.
7. Remove the generator and its arm.
8. Establish a support under the engine, remove the right support of the engine and draft regulating engine shift.
9. Unscrew screws of the top cover of a gas-distributing belt and disconnect from it wires. Remove the top cover and laying.
10. Establish the N1 piston in the top dead point. Check, that the small hole in an asterisk of a camshaft was combined with a sinkhronizatsionny label on a cover of the first bearing of a shaft.
11. If you are going to reuse a gas-distributing belt, make adjusting labels (arrows) on it and on asterisks. Designate the direction of rotation of a belt.
12. Weaken a bolt of the top intermediate pulley (shooter) and remove a spring. Remove a belt from a camshaft asterisk. The belt is not obligatory for removing from an asterisk of a cranked shaft if you are going to replace an epiploon of a camshaft or to remove a head of cylinders.
13. If the asterisk of a camshaft is worn-out or damaged, uncover heads of cylinders, stop a camshaft of inlet valves a wrench and unscrew an asterisk bolt. Remove an asterisk.
14. Uncover a viewing opening of a flywheel, and stop a flywheel or a leading disk by means of a big screw-driver. Weaken a bolt of a pulley of a cranked shaft.
15. Unscrew a bolt and remove a pulley.
16. Unscrew bolts (shooters) and remove the bottom cover of a gas-distributing belt and laying. Remove directing a belt from an asterisk of a cranked shaft.
17. If you are going to reuse a gas-distributing belt, make adjusting labels (shooter) on it and on an asterisk.
18. Remove a gas-distributing belt. If the asterisk of a cranked shaft is damaged or worn-out or it is necessary for you to replace a forward epiploon of a cranked shaft.
19. Remove an asterisk. She should act in film freely.
20. If an asterisk jammed, remove it by means of the special tool.


Damages of a gas-distributing belt

1. Stratification

2. Lack of a teeth

3. Wear of a surface

4. Curve of a lateral part

1. Remove intermediate pulleys and examine their bearings on existence of wear and damages. Examine a spring, check, whether there corresponds its length to technical requirements.
2. If the gas-distributing belt tore, the reason, probably, there was that it was too strongly tense or polluted.
3. If a teeth of a belt cracked or is absent in some places, whether it is necessary to check jams camshafts or water and oil pumps.
4. If the surface of a belt is strongly worn-out or covered with cracks, check, whether there are no scratches or an agnail on surfaces of intermediate pulleys.
5. If the belt is worn-out or damaged only on the one hand, check directing disk of a belt and correctness of installation of asterisks.
6. If necessary replace a belt, previously having eliminated all malfunctions.


1. Carefully clean a forward part of the engine.
2. Establish intermediate pulleys and a spring.
3 whether. Check sinkhronizatsionny labels of cranked and distributive shaft are combined.
4. Put on a belt an asterisk of a cranked shaft, an asterisk of oil and water pumps and on intermediate pulleys. If you put on an old belt, combine labels made on a belt and on asterisks during removal.
5. Establish directing a belt on a cranked shaft (in drawing. the directing disk of a belt) is shown.
6. Establish the bottom cover of a belt and a pulley of a cranked shaft.
7. Put on a belt a camshaft asterisk. Pull a forward part of a belt.
8. Weaken a bolt of the top intermediate pulley on a turn floor, slowly turn a cranked shaft clockwise on 1 and 7/8 turns so that the label on a pulley of a cranked shaft was displaced on 45 ° concerning a label intended for installation of the first piston in the top dead point and located on the bottom cover of a belt. Tighten a bolt of an intermediate pulley.
9 whether. Turn a cranked shaft on two turns and check sinkhronizatsionny labels are combined.
10. Establish new laying from pressurizing structure on covers of a gas-distributing belt.
