Rocker Arms and Shafts Disassembly/Reassembly

6-16  

NOTE:

  • Identify parts as they are removed to ensure reinstallation in original location.
  • Inspect the rocker shafts and rocker arms, refer to the '01 Civic Shop Manual on this CD (see page 6-38).
  • The rocker arms must be installed in the same positions if reused.
  • When removing or installing the rocker arm assembly, do not remove the camshaft holder bolts. The bolts will keep the holders, springs and rocker arms on the shaft.
  • Prior to reassembling, clean all the parts in solvent, dry them and apply lubricant to any contact points.
  • Bundle the rocker arms with rubber bands to keep them together as a set.
