 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Remove a head of cylinders, the pallet of a case and the oil pump (see. The repair procedures which are not demanding extraction of the engine from the car - the petrol engines or Repair procedures which are not demanding extraction of the engine from the car - diesel engines).
2. With noticeable step wear in the top part of cylinders it should be removed by means of a special vertical drill in order to avoid damage of pistons in the course of pushing out them from the engine. Considerable height of a step testifies to wear of cylinders.

3. By means of a center punch or paint mark rods and covers of their lower heads according to their belonging to the cylinders and to each other. Let's remind that the cylinder, next to the GRM drive, is considered the first.

5. Give nuts of fastening of a cover of the lower head of a rod of the piston of the first cylinder. Uncover and take from it the lower insert of the conrod bearing. If bearings are in good repair, and will be used further, enclose an insert back in a cover and fix it by an adhesive tape.

6. In order to avoid injury of necks of a bent shaft and a mirror of the cylinder pull couple of pieces of the rubber or plastic hoses suitable on diameter on hairpins of fastening of a cover of the bearing.

7. Having rested the wooden handle of the hammer against the top insert of the bearing of the lower head, push out conrod and piston assembly at the top of the cylinder outside from the engine. At emergence of resistance immediately stop extraction of assembly and check completeness of removal of step wear in the top part of the cylinder. Fix a bearing insert in a rod head by means of an adhesive tape.
8. Establish a cover back on a rod, and freely screw fixing nuts.
9. Working in a similar manner, remove conrod and piston assembly of the fourth cylinder.
