Removal and installation of a flywheel / driving disk



1. The car also establish to Poddomkratta it on props. Remove transmission (see the Head the Transmission).

The engine should be hung out from above on the winch or a beam.

2. On models remove coupling assembly from RKPP (see the Head Stsepleniye and power shafts). At once check a condition of components of coupling and the directing bearing.
3. On models with AT it will be a high time to check a state and to replace a forward epiploon / a sealing ring of the pump.
4. Mark with a marker or paint the provision of a flywheel / a driving disk concerning an end face of a bent shaft.

5. Turn out bolts of fastening of a flywheel / a driving disk to a bent shaft. If in the course of weakening of bolts the shaft begins to be turned, jam the screw-driver or mount between teeths of a wreath of a flywheel (RKPP), or pass a long drift throughout one of openings of a driving disk, having rested it against a ledge on the block (AT).

6. Remove a flywheel / a driving disk from a bent shaft.

The weight of assembly of a flywheel / a driving disk is very considerable, - it will be reasonable to resort to the help of the assistant. Put on working gloves not to cut a hand about keen edges of teeths of a wreath of assembly.

7. Carefully wipe a flywheel with the rags moistened in acetone, having completely removed from it traces of oil and lubricant. Check a working surface of a flywheel for existence of cracks, the furrows left heads of rivets of a frictional clutch plate, traces of an overheat and zadir. Minor defects can be eliminated by means of a fine-grained emery paper. Check a gear wreath for existence of cracks and chips of teeths. Lay a flywheel on a flat surface for the purpose of assessment of its planeness (use the planeness measuring instrument). In case of need give assembly to a pro-point.
8. Wipe the interfaced flywheel surfaces / a driving disk and a bent shaft. If signs of development of leak of oil through a back epiploon of a bent shaft take place, make its replacement (see the Section Replacement of a Back Epiploon of a Bent Shaft).



1. Establish a flywheel / a driving disk on a bent shaft, - track correctness of combination of the landing tags put in the course of dismantle of assembly.

On some engines the directing pin is provided, or fixing openings are located asymmetrically that guarantees unambiguity of landing of assembly. Before rolling fixing bolts, grease their carving part with the fixing sealant.

2. Having blocked a flywheel / a driving disk from a provorachivaniye, tighten new fixing bolts with the required effort in a diagonal order.

Bolts of fastening of a flywheel / a driving disk are subject to replacement without fail.

3. Further installation is made as it should be, the return to an order of dismantle of components.
