4. The engine

4.1. Engine OHV (with a camshaft in the block of cylinders)

The engine with four cylinders, established cross-section in a forward part of the car. Coupling and a transmission are located on the left side of the engine.

The cranked shaft leans against three radical bearings. Persistent half rings of a cranked shaft are established on the central radical bearing.

In the bottom heads of a rod are established шатунные loose leaves. Pistons fasten to rods piston fingers which are motionlessly fixed in an aperture of the top head of a rod. Pistons from an aluminium alloy also have three piston rings – two sealing and one маслосъемное.

The camshaft put in action by a chain from a cranked shaft, operates коромыслами through cams and short pushers. All inlet and final valves are closed by one spring and work in directing, запрессованных in a head of the block of cylinders. Valves are put in action directly коромыслами.

Engine greasing is made under the pressure created by the oil pump. Oil is sucked in through the mesh filter located in маслоприемнике, and then arrives through the filter in channels of the block of cylinders, therefrom oil arrives to a cranked shaft and a camshaft. Bearings of the bottom head of a rod are supplied with oil through internal drillings in a cranked shaft. To bearings of a camshaft oil also moves under pressure. Camshaft and valve cams are greased with the sprayed oil, as well as all other mobile details of the engine.
