Engine classic Vase (2101 -2107) is very reliable and durable unit, easy to operate and easy to maintain. However, he has his own “Achilles heel” — the camshaft, it is highly suffering from the so-called oil “starvation”, which occurs sometimes in well-warmed-up engine in two cases: when the oil is thoroughly liquefied, or when badly worn out oil pump and other components.
There is a good way to eliminate the oil “starvation” is to equip the machine working independently of the engine by an oil pump supplying the system smeeky the oil from the sump. However, to make and to mount in Matousec this unit is quite difficult. There is a more simple system for additional lubrication of levers and camshaft Cams, I want to tell the readers of the journal.
First of all let me remind you about how the lubrication of the camshaft. When the engine oil pump supplies oil to the Central support of the camshaft and then through the annular groove in the bearing journal — to the working surfaces of Cams and levers. Further, a part of oil is on the levers, and the part under the action of centrifugal forces splashes falling on the inner surface of the camshaft housing, and it flows down to the engine head.
This part of the oil can be directed to additional lubrication Cams camshaft, if the inner surface of the housing to install the melolabial partitions, between which the engine oil will first accumulate and then drip directly on the Cams of a camshaft and levers of valves.
In serial engine motor oil flows through the bearing housing of the camshaft.
The tin strip with a number of discrete partitions.
Engine oil is delayed furniture partitions and runs down the levers and the Cams of the camshaft.
Installing the device-a liner for extra lubricant to the engine can practically every motorist. This will require any sheet metal with a thickness of about 0.5 mm (I, in particular, partitions — galvanized sheet with the thickness 0.4 mm). Before bending the workpiece along the lines of markup to apply good risks a sharp awl or Scriber, then the fold line is smooth and clear.
The ready “concertina” (they are on the engine you will need four pieces) is secured by four small aluminum rivets on the housing of the camshaft.
