The truck IFA W50 was issued inA GDR, from 1965 to 1990. For this period of time more than half a million cars of this brand was issued. Number 50 in an abbreviation of the name of the car designates nominal load-carrying capacity inA centners. Release of trucks happened on \"ErnstA Grube\" automobile works in ofA Verdau. The unique serious upgrade ofA IFA W50L endured in 1967 then was issued without special changes up to consolidation of Germany in 1990 when the plant switched over to production of the trucks Mercedes-Benz.A
IFA W50L were issued more than in 120 modifications. TheA onboardA machine a?? both with regular, and with a cabin with a berth is most widespread. All-wheel driveA IFA W50LA meets also. Almost there was noA IFA W50L/S truck tractor of dump trucksA IFAW50L/K, and a?? in general a rarity. But still it is possible to meet very convenient for operation inA IFA W50L/LB city a?? the car with a back loading board on two hydraulic cylinders. Developed taking into account requirements of military, they differed increased reliability and a number of original constructive decisions.A
The cabin atA IFA is located over the engine, but thusA doesn\'t lean back forward therefore access to the motor is possible only from salon. And it very much complicates servicing and repair. And in a cabin it is a little place even for two, a lot of place are taken by the engine. If to judge to measures of the 1960th, inside it is rather convenient and comfortable. Especially as there is a heater and adjustments of a driver\'s seat, including on height. But at present the metal panel with a minimum of devices looks the obsolete.A
At first onA IFA W50L line 4-cylinder atmospheric diesel by capacity of 110 h.p. from the truckA IFA S4000-1 which was issued inVerdauA was put, but this engine practicallyA doesn\'t meet now. In 1967 to it the modernized option came to change a?? with the direct injection, developing 125 h.p. TheA valvateA mechanism a?? with the lower camshaft which drive is performed by torque sensing. The liquid cooling system quite allows to apply water. Here only it is inconvenient to fill in it: the stopper of a radiator is located too highly, and on a narrow bumper it is inconvenient to stand.A
The engine has one interesting feature a?? on small turnovers, for example, in case of warming up, 2 cylinders that is provided with the fuel delivery regulator work only. On a plan of designers, such work shall promote economy of fuel. However thus the machine thoroughly shakes. And as a result over time there can be cracks on a cabin in places of its fixture to a frame.A
On allA IFA it is established 5-step stick shift with synchronizers on the II-V transfers. It has no oil leakage, than, by the way, even newer trucks of other brands quite often suffer. Thus it is fixed on a frame separately from the engine and connected with it intermediate shaft whichA doesn\'t create problems, but at the main driveshaft crosspieces of hinges quickly enough wear out.
