Removal and installation of valves

All models

If elements of the mechanism of distribution are used again, they need to be established on former places. For an exception of an error of detail it is necessary to store as appropriate.


1. Remove a head of cylinders, address the Sections Removal and installation of the inlet pipeline and Removal and installation of a head of cylinders.
2. Remove the camshaft, address the Section Removal and installation of the camshaft.

3. Press a plate of the valve and remove crackers. For compression of valvate springs it is possible to use standard adaptation. Address an accompanying illustration.

4. Unclench a spring and remove a plate from above, spring and a plate from below.

5. Special pincers remove a maslootrazhatelny cap. It is possible to use the tool 791-5 or a stripper to this purpose 791-2 HAZET. On an illustration the BMW tool is shown. Address an accompanying illustration.

6. Take out the valve from a head of cylinders from the combustion chamber.
