Abstract:

The Ural-375 K is a modification of the basic Ural-375 V motor vehicle, modified for operation in polar climatic conditions. Modifications included motor pre-heaters, polyurethane foam curtain in front of radiator, independent window heaters, heated battery storage compartment, freeze proof tires and other rubber articles, freeze proof electrical insulation, and special oils and lubricants designed to operate at down to -60C. It was found in tests that the vehicle could be started after 30 minutes of preheating, and that operating temperatures stabilized at normal levels within 35 to 40 minutes of operation.
