3.2.3. The top dead point (ВМТ) piston N1

The highest point which reaches piston N1 at the moment of a compression step is accepted to the top dead point.

Piston N1 is located in a forward part of the right number of cylinders from outside газораспределительного a belt.


1. Disconnect a wire of the minus plug of the accumulator and if necessary unscrew spark plugs.
2. Remove an external cover газораспределительного a belt.
3. Turn a cranked shaft so that синхронизационные labels of asterisks of camshafts have been directed upwards and combined with cuts in a cover газораспределительного a belt. On each asterisk is available two labels (see the table of the Label of a camshaft).
4. For piston installation in ВМТ connect a special measuring instrument of pressure in a spark plug aperture.
5. Combine a cut in a pulley of a cranked shaft with a mark a zero (arrow) on a plate with синхронизационными labels. When labels are combined, piston N1 is in ВМТ at the moment of compression.
