Description

  The present invention relates to a power unit in which a power unit is supported by connecting a mount bracket elastically supported by a mount insulator and a unit bracket provided on a power unit (a drive unit configured to include an engine and a transmission). This relates to the support structure.

  Conventionally, when a power unit is mounted on a vehicle body in a vehicle assembly conveyor composed of an upper line and a lower line, first, the power unit is pushed up into the engine room from below the vehicle body suspended on the upper line conveyor. Thus, the mount bracket 16 elastically supported by the mount insulator 11 on the vehicle body side is installed on the unit bracket 22 provided on the power unit side (see FIG. 7).

  At this time, the first through-bolt insertion hole 19 provided in the mount bracket 16 and the two second through-bolt insertion holes 27 and 27 provided in the unit bracket 22 are disposed substantially side by side in a substantially coaxial manner. 16 provided in the unit bracket 22 and the first vertical bolt insertion hole 21 provided in the first bracket 16 (the first vertical bolt insertion hole 21 is provided more distally than the first through bolt insertion hole 19 from the mount insulator 11). The second upper and lower bolt insertion holes 25 are configured so as to be vertically arranged substantially coaxially.

Then, the through bolt 18 is inserted into the first through bolt insertion hole 19 and the second through bolt insertion holes 227 and 27 to temporarily fix the power unit. In this state, the vehicle body and the power unit are conveyed to the conveyor on the lower line. The upper and lower bolts 20 are inserted into the first upper and lower bolt insertion holes 21 and the second upper and lower bolt insertion holes 25 from above the vehicle body to connect the mount bracket 16 and the unit bracket 22 to each other.
In addition, although it is actually implemented regarding the mounting operation | work to the vehicle body of such a power unit, the appropriate patent document which mentioned this point is not found.

However, as shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, in the above-described mounting operation of the power unit, after the through bolt 18 is attached on the upper line and the power unit is temporarily fixed to the vehicle body, the upper and lower bolts 20 are attached on the lower line. In addition, the power unit is suspended through the mount bracket 16.
As a result, the unit bracket 22 is lowered together with the power unit, and the mount bracket 16 tries to rotate counterclockwise in FIG. 7 with the through bolt 18 as a fulcrum. When the pressing force of 16a acts on the unit bracket 22, the unit bracket 22 and the mount bracket 16 may be deformed (in FIG. 8, the base 23a of the inner member 23 in the unit bracket 22 is deformed). Deformation is shown).

  The present invention has been made in view of the above circumstances, and an object of the present invention is to provide a power unit support structure that can prevent deformation of a unit bracket and a mount bracket that may occur in a power unit mounting operation during vehicle assembly.
