Cam Chain Installation

NOTE: Keep the cam chain away from magnetic fields.

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

 

2.Set the camshafts to TDC. The punch mark (A) marked with an arrow on the variable valve timing control (VTC) actuator and the punch mark (B) on the exhaust camshaft sprocket should be at the top. Align the TDC marks (C) on the VTC actuator and exhaust camshaft sprocket.

 

3.Install the cam chain on the crankshaft sprocket with the colored piece (A) aligned with the punch mark (B) on the crankshaft sprocket.

 

4.Install the cam chain on the VTC actuator and exhaust camshaft sprocket with the punch marks (A) aligned with the two colored pieces (B).

 

5.Install the cam chain guide A and tensioner arm (B).

 

6.Install the auto-tensioner.

 

7.Install the cam chain guide B.

 

8.Remove the pin or lock pin (P/N 14511-PNA-003) from the auto-tensioner.

 

9.Check the chain case oil seal for damage. If the oil seal is damaged, replace the chain case oil seal.

10.Remove all of the old liquid gasket from the chain case mating surfaces, bolts, and bolt holes.

11.Clean and dry the chain case mating surfaces.

12.Apply liquid gasket, P/N 08C70-K0234M, 08C70- K0334M or 08C70-X0331S, evenly to the cylinder block mating surface of the chain case and to the inner threads of the holes.

 

13.Apply liquid gasket to the cylinder block upper surface contact areas (A) on the chain case and lower block upper surface contact areas (B) on the chain case.

14.Apply liquid gasket, P/N 08C70-K0334M or 08C70- X0331S, evenly to the oil pan mating surface of the chain case and to the inner threads of the holes.

NOTE: Do not install the parts if 4 minutes or more have elapsed since applying liquid gasket. Instead, reapply liquid gasket after removing the old residue.

 

15.Install the new O-ring (A) on the chain case. Set the edge of the chain case (B) to the edge of the oil pan (C), then install the chain case on the cylinder block (D).

NOTE:
  • When installing the chain case, do not slide the bottom surface on the oil pan mounting surface.
  • Wait at least 30 minutes before filling the engine with oil.
  • Do not run the engine for at least 3 hours after installing the chain case.

 

 

16.Install the side engine mount bracket.

 

17.Install the upper bracket (A), then tighten the bolt/nuts in the numbered sequence shown.

 

18.Install the ground cable (B).

19.Install the VTC oil control solenoid valve.

20.Connect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor connector (A) and VTC oil control solenoid valve connector (B).

 

21.Install the crankshaft pulley.

22.Install the cylinder head cover.

23.Install the drive belt.

24.Install the splash shield.
