Alternative versions of schemes of recovery repair of the engine

During independent performance of capital repairs of the engine the reader will face need of a choice of the scheme of actions which is the most acceptable for it determining the total amount and nature of the forthcoming work. Need of replacement of the block of the engine, shatunno-piston groups and a cranked shaft is defined by a set of various factors the main thing from which is the condition of the block. Time and material inputs, existence of necessary spare parts, and also own qualification of the owner of the car as mechanics belong to number of the other parameters defining a choice of structure of the forthcoming works.

It is possible to allocate the following main schemes of carrying out capital repairs of the engine:

Repair and replacement of components - If the condition of the block and the main internal components of the engine in the course of survey is found in an individual order the satisfactory, most reasonable decision there will be a carrying out their service in an individual order. Thus it is necessary to check carefully a condition of the block, a cranked shaft and shatunno-piston groups. Even at very insignificant degree of wear of the block, a mirror of its cylinders without fail are subject to a honingovaniye.

Use of the reduced engine block set – the Reduced set includes the block of cylinders with already established in it by a cranked shaft and shatunno-piston groups. Thus all bearings of a cranked shaft are completed with new inserts, and their working gaps are precisely adjusted. Further such set is equipped additionally with the camshafts removed from the old engine, components of the valvate mechanism, a head of cylinders and hinged units without any global mechanical works.

Use of an expanded set of the block of the engine – the Expanded set represents the reduced set, plus the oil pump, the case pallet, a head of cylinders with a cover, a camshaft, components of the valvate mechanism and the GRM drive (cogwheels with a gas-distributing belt) with covers. All installed bearings, epiploons and laying are new, gaps are adjusted. It is necessary only to connect to the block the inlet pipeline with a final collector and hinged units.

Before stopping the choice on any of the listed schemes of performance of capital repairs of the engine and to start acquisition of the corresponding replaceable components, consult with specialists of car service, representatives firm service center of the company manufacturer of your car and more skilled motorists.
