Greetings, dear readers! The machine I have for four years, I thought I knew everything about it, but always open for something new, so decided to share supervision.
Deconstructing dowry, discovered this
Material cardboard or fiber - I do not know how to correct, absolutely made for the factory fold one edge trimmed with metal bracket, there are three slots for allegedly fixing. I thought something of the interior, however, the assembly did not find there room for these elements did not throw - postponed until better times.
Once opened early directory section of the radiator, and saw a figure very similar details
Actually here:. PANEL radiator sealing .
And then I saw the M400 in the logbook Aleks-444 , honestly copied the photos, I hope the owner will not against.
in the photo, as well as on index figure shows how the plates are attached to radiaoru.
I decided to turn to literature. Thanks StepanM401 , helped to find all of the most essential issues.
Books for repair M400, M401 and parts catalog in 1954.
That's so different drawings in books repair in the sections devoted to the cooling system.
in the earlier book The above figure from the catalog M400, and later this one:
From the 1954 edition of the catalog. The difference is obvious ...
Open "products related industries" section, look for the appropriate sub-section
And do not find in it these items ...
Machine, overlooking its radiator, also suggests that they were not. On the radiator frame no hint of fixing these details.
Here's a puzzle ... I certainly Shields as he could recover. Clean. From a suitable piece of restored detached Area, painted metal bracket, now look smart, but not Novodel.
There was only one question as they were in the box with the details of my cars. Worried former master, he, of course, such nuances are not remembered, but it's safe to say that no donor radiators or donor Moskvich 400 he did not. All that was in a single bunch of parts, it was removed from the machine. The argument is weak, so I want to appeal to the owners of the Muscovites, on your machine it? And it was attached?
catalog, of course, a piece stubborn ... But not once encountered cases of fundamental differences of reality, and it would seem, the truth ... Just recently, for example, men in the comments here , found that broken off vertical moldings lining, not broken off, and components.
Or this detail.
None of the directory is not present, and it is. Got me accidentally spare hood, b / y, is removed from the machine with all prichendaly, including this "belt". The edge which is sewn loop, hung on the eyelet wiring harness, and without loops klёpkoy fastened to the edge of the hood rigidity. Also thought the farm, but the confused material - one in a seal bonnet, and then drew attention to his hood
riveting in the rib stiffness remained, so she was. , and with the plant. But the original copy of the photo, which shows how it should be.
