1.
caution
  • Turn the crankshaft clockwise.
  • Never turn the crankshaft after the cylinder No. 1 or No. 4 is set to the top dead centre of compression.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise to align the timing mark of the balancer shaft sprocket with the timing mark of the balancer shaft and oil pump module, and set the cylinder No. 1 or No. 4 to the top dead centre of compression.
2.Put paint marks on the balancer shaft sprocket timing mark and balancer chain.


3.
caution Securely install the plunger of the balancer chain tensioner. Otherwise, it may pop out.
Press the balancer chain against the balancer chain tensioner, compress the plunger of the balancer chain tensioner and insert L-shaped hard wire (piano wire of Φ1.5 mm) or L-shaped hexagon wrench (1.5 mm) to the plunger fixing hole of the balancer chain tensioner from under the timing chain case, and fix the plunger of the balancer chain tensioner.

4.Use a wrench to remove the mounting bolt at the lower side of the balancer chain guide shown in the figure so that the balancer chain guide is unrestricted.
5.Support the balancer shaft and oil pump module with a hand, and remove the balancer shaft and oil pump module mounting bolt.

6.Remove the balancer shaft and oil pump module from the rudder frame with the balancer timing chain attached, and move it to the centre of the engine.
7.Remove the balancer chain from the balancer shaft and oil pump module, and remove the balancer shaft and oil pump module.

8.
caution When the tooth jump of the balancer timing chain from the crankshaft sprocket occurs, the timing between the balancer shaft and the oil pump module becomes off, resulting in the abnormal engine vibration. Be sure that the tooth jump will not occur.
After the balancer shaft and oil pump module is removed, using a cable band, tie the balancer chain at the protrusion of the rudder frame to prevent the tooth jump of balancer chain from the crankshaft sprocket.

INSTALLATION SERVICE POINT



>>A<< BALANCER SHAFT AND OIL PUMP MODULE INSTALLATION




1.When installing the new balancer shaft and oil pump module, apply oil to the oil pump in the balancer shaft and oil pump module and the balancer shaft bearing as follows.
(1) Clean the inside of the removed engine oil pan, and put the balancer shaft and oil pump module into the engine oil pan with its oil inlet port facing up.
(2) Pour new engine oil until two-thirds of the balancer shaft and oil pump module is soaked.
(3) Fill the engine oil (approximately 50 mL) into the balancer shaft and oil pump module from the oil inlet port.
(4) Turn the balancer shaft sprocket of the balancer shaft and oil pump module clockwise four rotations or more to apply the engine oil to the entire area of the oil pump and the balancer shaft bearing.
2.Remove the cable band installed to prevent the tooth jump of the balancer chain from the crankshaft sprocket from the balancer chain.

3.Regarding the prevention of the tooth jump of the balancer chain, install the balancer shaft sprocket to the balancer chain with aligning the paint marking of the balancer shaft sprocket (the timing mark of the new balancer shaft and oil pump module) with that of the balancer chain.
4.With the paint marking of the balancer chain aligned with that of the balancer sprocket (the timing mark of the new balancer shaft and oil pump module), install the balancer shaft and oil pump module to the rudder frame. Securely bring the balancer shaft and oil pump module into contact with the rudder frame mounting area.
5.Apply an adequate and minimum amount of engine oil to the threads and bearing surfaces of the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts.

6.Tighten the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts to the specified torque 20 N·m in the order of number shown in the figure.
7.Tighten the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts again to the specified torque 44 N·m in the order of number shown in the figure.
8.Loosen the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts fully in the reverse sequence to that shown.
9.Tighten the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts to the specified torque 20 N·m in the order of number shown in the figure.


10.After tightening to the specified torque, tighten the balancer shaft and oil pump module bolts to 135 degrees, using special tool angle gauge (MB991614), in the order of number shown in the figure.
11.Tighten the mounting bolt of the balancer chain guide lower with the standard torque.
Tightening torque: 10 ± 2 N·m
12.Remove the plunger of the balancer chain tensioner using the L-shaped hard wire (Φ1.5 mm piano wire, etc.) or L-shaped hexagon wrench (1.5 mm).
