INSPECTION

PROCEDURE

1. INSPECT NO. 1 VALVE ROCKER ARM SUB-ASSEMBLY

(a) Turn the roller by hand to check that it turns smoothly.

If the roller does not turn smoothly, replace the No. 1 valve rocker arm sub-assembly.


2. INSPECT VALVE LASH ADJUSTER ASSEMBLY

NOTICE:

  • Keep the adjuster free from dirt and foreign matter.
  • Use only clean engine oil.

(a) Place the valve lash adjuster assembly into a container full of new engine oil.

(b) Insert the tip of SST into the lash adjuster plunger and use the tip to press down on the check ball inside the plunger.

SST: 09276-75010

(c) Squeeze SST and the lash adjuster together to move the plunger up and down 5 to 6 times.

(d) Check the movement of the plunger and bleed air.

OK:

Plunger moves up and down.

NOTICE:

When bleeding air from the high-pressure chamber, make sure that the tip of SST is actually pressing the check ball as shown in the illustration. If the check ball is not pressed, air will not bleed.

(e) After bleeding the air, remove SST. Then try to quickly and firmly press the plunger with your fingers.

OK:

Plunger is very difficult to move.

If the result is not as specified, replace the valve lash adjuster assembly.

3. INSPECT CAMSHAFT OIL CLEARANCE

(6) When the camshaft timing exhaust gear assembly moves to the most retarded position, release the air pressure from the advance side path, and then release the air pressure from the retard side path.

NOTICE:

Be sure to release the air pressure from the advance side path first. If the air pressure of the retard side path is released first, the camshaft timing exhaust gear assembly may abruptly shift in the advance direction and break the lock pin or other parts.

(f) Check for smooth rotation.

(1) Turn the camshaft timing exhaust gear assembly within its movable range (19 to 21°) 2 or 3 times, but do not turn it to the most advanced position. Make sure that the camshaft timing exhaust gear assembly turns smoothly.

NOTICE:

When the air pressure is released from the advance side path and then from the retard side path, the gear automatically returns to the most advanced position due to the advance assist spring operation, and locks. Gradually release the air pressure from the retard side path before performing the smooth rotation check.

(g) Check the lock at the most advanced position.

(1) Make sure that the camshaft timing exhaust gear assembly locks at the most advanced position.

(h) Remove the vinyl tape and rubber pieces from the No. 2 camshaft.
