2.11. Check, adjustment of a tension and replacement drive a belt


Examine приводные belts on all length from both parties on presence of cracks or wear tracks.

Deterioration клинового a belt
1. Deterioration of a lateral surface

2. Strong истирание surfaces

3. Cracks

4. Stratification

5. The polished surface

6. Pollution by oil

7. Rupture

Deterioration of a ridge belt

1. Admissible deterioration

2. Cross-section cracks on belt edges

3. Inadmissible deterioration

4. There are no adjoining sites of edges of a belt in length more than 1 sm

5. The cracks parallel to edges of a belt

Measure a tension of belts by means of special measuring tools and compare the obtained data to technical characteristics. If you do not have special tool, check up a tension, having pressed on a belt in the middle between two pulleys and having measured a belt deviation. The belt should deviate on 6 mm if the distance centre to centre pulleys makes 18–28 the Belt see should deviate on 12 mm if the distance centre to centre pulleys 30–40 see

Measurement of a deviation of a belt by means of a ruler

1. A belt deviation

2. Check up, that the ruler was perpendicular рейке

3. Рейка

4. A ruler

Tension adjustment

1. For tension adjustment drive the generator and the compressor, ослабьте шарнирный a bolt () the generator in the left forward corner of the block of cylinders. Loosen the a lock bolt also turn an adjusting bolt () clockwise to pull a belt or counter-clockwise, to weaken. Measure a belt tension. If necessary spend repeated adjustment.
2. For tension adjustment drive a belt of the pump of system of hydrostrengthening of a steering, ослабьте an adjusting bolt also turn the pump towards the engine or on the contrary to weaken or increase a belt tension accordingly.


Loosen the a tension drive a belt also remove it from pulleys. If one belt demands replacement, it is recommended to replace other belts also.
