Automatic натяжитель a gear belt

And – ledges on the water pump and the block of cylinders,
In – the index натяжителя is combined with a cut in an arm натяжителя,

2. Unscrew a bolt натяжителя a belt and turn the lever натяжителя to weaken a belt tension. Fix натяжитель in such position, having tightened a bolt. Remove a gear belt.
3. Check up, that the ledge on a flange of the water pump has been combined with a corresponding ledge on the block of cylinders. If necessary adjust position of the water pump (fig. Installation of a gear belt see).
4. Pull a gear belt, having weakened a bolt натяжителя and having turned the lever натяжителя counter-clockwise against the stop. Tighten a bolt натяжителя.
5. Turn a cranked shaft on two complete revolutions and check up that adjusting labels are combined with indexes.
6. Again ослабьте a bolt натяжителя also turn the lever натяжителя so that to combine the index натяжителя and a cut in an arm натяжителя (see fig. Automatic натяжитель a gear belt). Tighten a bolt натяжителя.
