3.3.4. Capital repairs of the engine – an alternative


At independent performance of capital repairs various options are possible. The decision on replacement of the block of cylinders, conrod and piston group and a bent shaft depends on a number of factors from which the most important is the condition of the block of cylinders. Other reasons are the repair cost, a possibility of access to the equipment of workshops of car service, existence of spare parts, time planned for work, and also personal experience.

Here some of options of performance of capital repairs.

Acquisition of separate spare parts

If check shows that the block of cylinders and the majority of details are in satisfactory condition and can be used further, then the most expedient from the economic point of view is purchase of separate spare parts. The block of cylinders, conrod and piston group and a bent shaft should be surveyed especially carefully. Even if insignificant wear of the block of cylinders is found, cylinders are subject to an obligatory honningovaniye.

Block of cylinders of an incomplete complete set

The block of cylinders of an incomplete complete set contains the block of cylinders with installed by the krivoshipno-conrod mechanism and piston group. All interfaced details are picked up for dimensional groups, all gaps meet standards. On the block the cam-shafts which are not a part of this remkomplekt, the valvate mechanism, a head of the block of cylinders and hinged units are separately mounted. Costs of machining are minimum or are not required absolutely.

Repair engine (block of cylinders of a full complete set)

The repair engine delivered in the spare part contains all set of the block of cylinders of an incomplete complete set, and also the oil pump, the oil pallet, a head of the block of cylinders, a cover of a head of the block of cylinders, a cam-shaft, the valvate mechanism, cam-shaft drive gear wheels, a gear belt and covers of a belt. All details are established with new bearings, consolidations and laying. On a set only the soaking-up and final collectors and hinged units are mounted.

Carefully think over what of alternatives best of all suits you, before purchase or before execution of the order for spare parts consult in a local workshop of car service, with suppliers of spare parts, and also with specialists in restoration of engines.
