Fill the cooling system to the proper level. If the cap will not come apart easily, leave it in place without the bolts. Install the timing belt covers and the valve cover. If the battery is cracked, it should be replaced immediately. Withdraw the air filter element from the housing and if it is too dirty, discard it.
Luckily, many of the measuring devices which are available today will have two scales so the Standard or Metric measurements may easily be taken. Tilt the gauge back to remove it from the bore. Install the right hand cover under the engine. If a new belt has been installed, always recheck the tension after a few hundred miles of driving. Coat the bearing cap bolts with clean engine oil. Lightly lubricate the valve stems and insert them into the cylinder head in their numbered order. Depending on the particular circumstances, you may save 40 to 60 percent of the cost doing these yourself.
Use a micrometer to measure the camshaft journals If the diameter is not as specified, check the oil clearance. Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between terminals 1 and 2. After the piston and connecting rod assemblies have been installed, check the connecting rod side clearance on each crankshaft journal. Although the readings from built-in hydrometers found in sealed batteries may vary, a green eye usually indicates a properly charged battery with sufficient fluid level. Alternately loosen and remove the bearing cap bolts on the No.
Reverse Steps 8b through 8d, then start over from Step 8b. Camshaft bearing caps in 2 stages: A. A stack of washers the same thickness as the measured protrusion may help the installation process. Camshaft bearing caps in 2 stages: No. A small magnetic tool or screwdriver will aid in removal. These wrenches are often preferred because they tend to be compact, easy to read and have a great degree of accuracy.
Wipe away all traces of the grinding compound and store the valve to maintain its lapped location. Check and adjust valve clearance. However, your particular engine may not have everything worn out. Clean the cable clamps and the battery terminal with a wire brush, until all corrosion, grease, etc. Alternator belt tension on all other engines is adjusted by means of a tension adjusting bolt with is usually a 12mm or 14mm. Hold the camshaft with a wrench while removing the sprocket bolt-1.
Replace the exhaust manifold and the five retaining nuts. However, certain models may not have enough open space around the spring for the standard tool and may require you to use a C-clamp style compressor tool instead. Page 47 If the camshaft cannot be removed straight and level, install and tighten the No. Be sure to use the proper alignment marks on the gears. Cylinder head To install: 1 Page 68 Fig. Start the engine, check for leaks, and check the ignition timing.
Check to see that the point marks on the camshaft sprockets are facing each other, if not, rotate the crankshaft 1 full revolution. Retighten the idler pulley lockbolt. Repeat the checking procedure with the straightedge placed along both diagonals of the deck surface. Again, you will tilt the gauge back to remove it from the bore. A complete rebuild or overhaul of an engine involves replacing all of the moving parts pistons, rods, crankshaft, camshaft, etc. Apply sealant to the front bearing cap. Install the bearing caps in their original positions.
Install the intake camshaft, as follows: A. Remove the valve spring and retainer from the cylinder head 1. Sprockets and valve timing controller assembly, aligning the knock pin and hole. Intake camshaft removal and installation positioning-2. If necessary for safety reasons, the hazard lights on both vehicles may be operated throughout the entire procedure without significantly increasing the difficulty of jumping the dead battery. Apply a light coat of clean engine oil to the camshaft bearing cap bolts and install the four bearing caps. Alternately loosen and remove the bearing cap bolts on the No.
Make sure the terminals on both batteries are clean and free of corrosion or proper electrical connection will be impeded. Be sure not to apply force rapidly. If the lifters are to be reused, store them upside down in a sealed container. If a new belt has been installed, always recheck the tension after a few hundred miles of driving. An ideal method of rebuilding the cylinder head would involve replacing all of the valves, guides, seats, springs, etc.
