4.1.10. Pistons and rods

4.1.10.1. Removal of pistons and rods

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a head of the block of cylinders, the oil pallet and the oil pump.
2. New covers of rods are not marked, therefore check existence on them of labels and, at their absence, put them, beginning numbering from a drive.
3. Unscrew bolts of fastening of covers of rods and arrange them so that at installation they rose on the places.
4. Remove covers of rods from rods.
5. If necessary take shatunny loose leaves from a rod and rod cover. Have loose leaves so that at installation they rose on the places.
6. Pistons with rods are necessary for taking through the top part of the engine, pushing out them the hammer handle. If there is a deposit in the top part of the cylinder, remove it with a scraper from a soft material. Step existence in the top part of the cylinder testifies to excessive wear of the cylinder and need of boring of cylinders of the engine.
7. It is not recommended to separate needlessly pistons from rods. Because the piston finger is pressed in a rod, for its removal and installation use of the special equipment is necessary.
8. If pistons are necessary for removing from rods, put on the pistons of a label located from the same party, as a label on a rod.
