  1. CONSTRUCTION


    1. Oil Pump Assembly


      1. The trochoidal type oil pump assembly is driven by the crankshaft, and fits compactly inside the oil pan.

      2. A relief valve has been provided on the oil pump assembly, thus, any excessive pressure rises are restrained and friction loss is reduced.

    2. No. 1 Oil Nozzle Sub-assembly


      1. No. 1 oil nozzle sub-assemblies for cooling and lubricating the pistons are provided in the cylinder block sub-assembly.

      2. These No. 1 oil nozzle sub-assemblies contain a check ball to prevent oil from being fed when the oil pressure is low. This prevents the overall oil pressure in the engine from dropping.

    3. Oil Filter Element


      1. A replaceable oil filter element is used. The oil filter element uses a high-performance filter paper to improve filtration performance. It is also combustible for environmental protection.

        Tech Tips

        The engine oil maintenance interval for a model that has an oil filter with a replaceable oil filter element is the same as that for a conventional model.
