Cranked shaft

The cranked shaft is shaped together with counterbalances and leans on five radical bearings.

The axial gap is regulated by thickness of persistent half rings on the average the radical bearing.

Diameters of radical necks
The nominal:
  – sign yellow
54,980-54,990 mm
  – sign red
54,990-55,000 mm
Reduced (a sign green)
54,730-54,750 mm
Radial gap in radical bearings
0,011-0,048 mm
Axial gap of a cranked shaft
0,090-0,300 mm
Thickness of persistent half rings:
  – the nominal
2,301-2,351 mm
  – repair (sign yellow)
2,491-2,541 mm
Diameter of shatunny necks:
  – the nominal
50,890-50,910 mm
  – reduced (a sign green)
50,640-50,660 mm

Radical loose leaves

The semi-loose leaves located in the block of cylinders, have an opening and a flute for oil.

Internal diameter of loose leaves after installation in the block of cylinders:
  – the nominal
55,001-55,038 mm
  – repair-0,05
54,951-54,988 mm
  – repair-0,25
54,751-54,788 mm
  – repair-0,50
54,501-54,538 mm
  – repair-0,75
54,251-54,288 mm


Rods are shaped from steel and have dvutavrovy section of a rod and a straight line of the socket of the bottom head. The opening serves in the bottom head of a rod for oil dispersion in the piston for its cooling and greasing, and also for cooling of a piston finger and a rod head. Rods depending on weight are divided into four groups (And, In, With, D). Rods in the engine should belong to one group.

Diameter of an opening of the bottom head
53,890-53,910 mm
Diameter of an opening of a head
20,589-20,609 mm
Radial gap in shatunny bearings
0,006-0,060 mm

Shatunnye loose leaves

Internal diameter of loose leaves after installation in a rod:
  – the nominal
50,916-50,950 mm
  – repair-0,025
50,891-50,925 mm
  – repair-0,25
50,666-50,700 mm
  – repair-0,50
50,416-50,450 mm
  – repair-0,75
50,166-50,200 mm
  – repair-1,00
49,916-49,950 mm
Axial gap of a rod (on cranked to a shaft)
0,090-0,310 mm


Pistons are cast from an easy alloy, have a full shirt and the shifted axis of an opening of a piston finger.

Installation method: the arrow should be at the bottom directed towards a drive of system of a gazoraspredeleniye.

Nominal diameters of pistons:
  – group 1
85,970-85,980 mm
  – group 2
85,980-85,990 mm
Repair diameters of pistons:
  – the standard
85,980-86,000 mm
  – repair +0,15
86,130-86,150 mm
  – repair +0,50
86,470-86,490 mm
Piston gap in the cylinder:
  – the nominal
0,020-0,040 mm
  – the repair
0,010-0,040 mm

Piston rings

Each piston has three rings:

  – first (top) – sealing barrel-like;
  – second (average) – sealing conic;
  – third (bottom) – maslosjemny (from three parts with a spring ekspander).

Gap of the lock of rings (placed in the cylinder):
  – the first sealing
0,30-0,60 mm
  – the second sealing
0,50-0,80 mm
  – maslosjemny
0,40-1,50 mm

Piston fingers

The fingers made of steel, are pressed in a head of a rod and rotate in piston naves.

Installation method: after heating of a rod to temperature 260 °–300 ° Page.
