8.1.3. Adjustment of a gap and the closed condition of contacts of the breaker

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Unscrew two screws and uncover the distributor of ignition and a distributor rotor.
2. Clear an internal surface of a cover of the distributor of ignition and check its condition.
3. If the internal surface of contacts of a cover of the distributor of ignition strongly scorched, replace a cover.
4. If on contacts there is an insignificant deposit, using a screw-driver, clear it.
5. Pressing the central coal contact in a cover, check smoothness of its moving and a contact vystupaniye from a cover which at least 6 mm should be.
6. Using a screw-driver edge, unclench contacts of the breaker and check their condition.
7. If contacts are worn-out, it is necessary to replace them.
8. If contacts of the breaker are in a satisfactory condition or new contacts are come into, it is necessary to adjust a gap between contacts to edge use щупа.
9. Mark and remove from spark plugs high-voltage wires, then unscrew spark plugs.
10. At the released hand brake and the included transfer move the car forward and watch the ignition distributor while the lever of contacts of the breaker will not be on a ledge of one of four cams of a shaft of the distributor of ignition.
11. An edge щупа check a gap between breaker contacts. At gap check an edge щупа and contacts of the breaker should be pure and dry.
12. If the gap does not correspond to demanded values, weaken the screw, fixing a plate of contacts and, moving a plate, establish a demanded gap. The plate can be moved a screw-driver inserted between a label in a plate of the breaker and two adjacent ledges of a basic plate of the distributor of ignition.
13. After installation of a gap of contacts of the breaker fix a plate the screw and repeatedly measure a gap between contacts.
14. Establish a rotor of the distributor of ignition, a cover, spark plugs and high-voltage wires.

In the presence of a measuring instrument of duration of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker, the most exact method of installation of a gap between contacts of the breaker is a measurement and installation of duration of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker.

The corner of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker is a corner on which the cam of the distributor of ignition while contacts of the breaker remain closed turns. Advantage of this method is that any wear of a shaft of the distributor of ignition and a contour of cams is considered, and also measurement errors are excluded when using щупа.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For check of duration of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker uncover the distributor of ignition and a rotor.
2. Connect щупы a measuring instrument to contact + (15) and to contact - (1) coils of ignition.
3. The assistant should include ignition and turn a cranked shaft of the engine a starter.
4. At this time on a measuring instrument read a corner of the closed condition of contacts. Fluctuation of an arrow of a measuring instrument testifies that the cranked shaft of the engine is turned insufficiently quickly.
5. In this case unscrew spark plugs and repeat check.
6. If a corner too small, a gap between contacts too big, and on the contrary if the corner of the closed condition of contacts big, means, a gap between contacts the small.
7. Adjust a gap between breaker contacts.
8. After adjustment of a corner of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker disconnect a measuring instrument and establish a rotor of the distributor and a cover of the distributor of ignition.
9. Check installation of a corner of an advancing of ignition.
