2.6.4. Drive belt


1. Belts of a drive of the generator, the pump of the power steering and the conditioner which sometimes simply call "ventilyatorny" belts, are on the right side of the engine on a car course. Operation of all engine very strongly depends on a condition and the correct adjustment of a tension of a belt of a drive of the generator as a whole. Because of constant loadings over time there is a pulling of belts and their condition worsens. Therefore, belts should be checked periodically.
2. The quantity of the belts established on the car depends on type of the engine and from a car complete set. One of belts is intended for a drive of the generator and the pump of cooling liquid. If the car is equipped with the conditioner and the power steering, for a drive of these units two more belts are added.
3. Stop the engine and, having opened a cowl, find drive belts. Examine, having shined with a small lamp, each belt. Check existence of an otsloyeniye of the rubber pasted slip on both parties of a basis of a belt, a basis anguish on end faces of a tape of a belt, hardening of a basis, a separation or damages of separate paths of a rubber slip, damages of all ridge structure of a surface of a belt (cracks, a separation and wear of paths).
4. Check also existence of wear and a steklovaniye of a material of a belt owing to which on a belt luster is observed. To examine a belt follows from both parties for what it should be overwound. If the surface of a belt is inaccessible to survey, the condition can be tested to the touch. At detection of any of above-mentioned defects a belt replace.
5. For check of a tension of a belt the next way is recommended. Strongly press a belt a thumb approximately in the middle between pulleys and check depth of a deflection of a belt. Measure by a ruler size of a deflection of a belt which should be about 6,0 mm at distance between centers pulleys from 170 to 280 mm, or about 13,0 mm if distance between centers pulleys from 300 to 400 mm.

Adjustment of a tension and replacement

1. Two ways are applied to regulation of a tension depending on the belt location. On all cars for adjustment of a tension of a belt of a drive of the generator it is necessary to weaken assembly and adjusting bolts, to shift the generator on the necessary distance a hand, or rotating an adjusting bolt then to check a belt tension in the way described above. Upon termination of adjustment tighten assembly and adjusting bolts.
2 whether. For regulation of a tension of other belts at first check there is on a belt course a roller of a natyazhitel. If the roller is provided, weaken a lock-nut of a roller and rotate an adjusting bolt. Check a belt tension in the way described above. Achieve the correct tension of a belt then tighten a roller lock-nut. If the roller is not provided, the tension of a belt is regulated by shift of the case of the pump of the hydraulic booster. Release a bolt of fastening of the pump in an arm groove, displace the pump from the engine (if the belt has to be pulled, or towards the engine if the belt has to be weakened). Upon termination of adjustment tighten a bolt.
3. For replacement of a belt execute the procedure described above for belt adjustment, remove a belt from pulleys. That remove a belt from the car it can to be necessary at first to remove that belt which is located outside. As degree of wear of belts is approximately identical, for elimination of such inconvenience it is expedient to change all belts at the same time. Before removal put labels on pulleys and on belts to facilitate installation of new belts on their appointment.
4. At acquisition grasp with itself the removed belts to pick up new belts on length, width and a profile.
5. At replacement be convinced that paths of a new belt precisely came into pulley flutes. The belt should settle down strictly on the pulley center, shift is not allowed to the periphery of a pulley.
6. Adjust a belt tension in the way described above.
