Cylinder Head Installation


Install the cylinder head in the reverse order of removal:

  1. Clean the cylinder head and block surface.
  1. Install the new cylinder head gasket (A) and dowel pins (B) on the cylinder block. Always use a new cylinder head gasket.

  1. Set the crankshaft to TDC. Align the TDC mark (A) on the crankshaft sprocket with the pointer (B) on the cylinder block.

  1. Install the cylinder head on the block.

  1. Measure the diameter of each cylinder head bolt at point A and point B.

  1. If either diameter is less than 10.6 mm (0.42 in.), replace the cylinder head bolt.
