Phases timing
The prevention

Phases timing are resulted at a working backlash of valves (0,20 mm for the inlet valve and 0,25 mm for the final valve).

The engine
1,6 дм3 LSD
1,8 дм3 REB
22 before ВМТ
24 before ВМТ
54 after НМТ
64 after НМТ
64 before НМТ
64 before НМТ
12 after ВМТ
12 after ВМТ
OZD and ZZD – accordingly opening and closing of the inlet valve
OZW and ZZW – accordingly opening and closing of the final valve


Axial люфт a shaft in the engine 1,6 дм3 LSD
0,09 – 0,10 mm
Height of cams:
  – The engine 1,6 дм3 LSD
36,056 – 36,272 mm
  – The engine 1,8 дм3 REB
36,26 – 36,60 mm


Tension check

The new way of check – can be used for all engines.


The prevention

Before check the engine should work not less, than 1/2 hours.

1. To turn (in a direction of working rotation, holding for a pulley bolt) a cranked shaft on two turns and to establish the piston of 1st cylinder in ВМТ.
2. To turn a cranked shaft on nearby 60 in the opposite direction.
3. By means of the adaptation 21.113 to measure a tension of a gear belt between pulleys of a cam-shaft and an intermediate shaft which should make 4–5 units of a scale of the adaptation.
