CYLINDER BLOCK ASSEMBLY REPAIR - CONTINUED
CLEANING AND INSPECTION - CONTINUED
Check cylinder block deck (22) for flatness with straightedge and thickness gage.
Because camshaft is mounted in cylinder head, resurfacing of block and/or head affects position of camshaft
in relation to adjustable idler gear and gear train. Limit resurfacing on cylinder block to maximum of 0.01 in
(0.25 mm). Limit resurfacing on block and head to combined total of 0.03 in (0.75 mm). If limits are
exceeded, replace cylinder block.
Check front-to-rear flatness, next to cylinder liner flanges on both sides, and side-to-side flatness between liner flanges,
as shown. Deck must be flat within 0.005 in (0.127 mm) front-to-rear and 0.003 in (0.076 mm) side-to-side. If not,
resurface cylinder block.
Spray machined surfaces with engine lubricating oil if cylinder block is not to be used immediately. Spray or dip cylin-
der block in corrosion preventive compound for extended storage.
