Cleaning of the block of the engine


1. Remove the bridge of covers of radical bearings (Civic) or the bridge and covers (Integra) and take from the beds in covers and the block loose leaves of bearings. Mark loose leaves by means of an adhesive tape on compliance them to the beds (bearing No., a block/cover) and put them aside.

2. On the Integra models equipped with VTEC system отболтите also remove from the block masloraspylitel (see an accompanying illustration). Diameter of a nozzle of a spray equals 1.27 mm and in it the drill of 1 mm should be passed freely. Enter into an inlet opening of a spray a shaft of a drill and wring out them a control ball. The ball should move freely and at an otpuskaniye to come back to a starting position at the expense of the effort developed by a spring. In case of identification of signs of weakening of a spring, submit to an inlet opening the compressed air. The ball should, overcoming effort developed by a spring, to depart from a saddle at pressure not less than 1.96 kgfs/cm 2, otherwise the spray is subject to replacement.

3. Scratch out from an interfaced surface of the block all traces of a material of old laying – try not to leave задиров.
4. Remove from the block all covers and carving caps of oil galleries. Caps are usually tightened very hardly therefore, quite probably, they should be drilled with the subsequent restoration of a carving in an opening. At assembly of the block of a cap it is necessary to replace new.

5a. Now it is necessary to take vyzhimny jams of a water shirt from the block. By means of a hammer and a stupid drift wrap one edge of a stopper in the block, then grasp the turned-out opposite edge nippers...

5b.... take a stopper from the engine (see accompanying illustrations).

Try not to hammer casually a stopper in the engine. Take all jams.

6. At strong external pollution of the engine it is necessary to deliver it in a car-care center workshop for steam cleaning or heat treatment.
7. After block return from a workshop once again carefully clean all its oil openings and galleries – for this purpose special cylindrical brushes of a special form (ask in shops of automobile accessories) are issued. Wash out cavities and channels warm water – continue washing until from the opposite side of the block pure water will not start to follow. Carefully dry up the block, then slightly grease all pierced surfaces with liquid oil for protection them from corrosion. In the presence of access to a source of the compressed air use it for acceleration of process of drying of the block and a purge of remote cavities and channels.

At work with the compressed air do not forget to put on goggles!

8. At strong pollution or a zashlakovyvaniye of the block it is necessary to resort to shchetochny cleaning by hot water with soap. It is not necessary to try to save time at the expense of the negligent relation to block cleaning. Regardless of the chosen way, track care of pro-cleaning of remote cavities, channels and openings. In summary dry the block and grease the pierced surfaces with liquid oil for protection them from corrosion.

9. Banish all boltovy openings in the block a tap of the corresponding size (see an accompanying illustration) for the purpose of a guarantee of compliance of indications of the indicator of a dinamometrichesky key to really developed efforts of a tightening of fixture at engine assembly. Whenever possible, blow then openings the compressed air, having removed from them all small garbage and shaving. Having finished processing of openings, walk a lerka by a carving part of bolts.

10. Establish to the place of a cover of radical bearings, having by hand tightened their fixture.

11. Grease surfaces of new vyzhimny jams interfaced to the block with hermetic (Permatex No. 1 type) and plant them perpendicularly in the engine. For landing of vyzhimny jams special adaptations any of which can be successfully replaced with a replaceable face head suitable on the size (see an accompanying illustration) are issued. The head should enter into a stopper rather densely.

12. Grease with not stiffening hermetic a carving of new caps and закупорьте them openings of oil galleries. Track durability of a tightening of caps.
13. If are not going to start immediately engine assembly, place the block in a big plastic bag for protection of its pollution.
