the set screw in the bottom knurled nut
(a) Install the lower adapter plate with its
and tighten the nut by hand to remove
adjusting screw facing up and positioned
shaft end play. Retighten set screw when
in the cutout section of the tool bearing
desired adjustment is obtained.
(e) Install the tool holder and tool bit (fig.
(b) Install the upper adapter plate to the tool
housing so its adjusting screw is facing up
(2) Preparation of Cylinder Block for Checking and

line with the lower adjusting screw and in
the cutout section of the tool bearing
(b) Thoroughly clean upper and lower sleeve

rust, and carbon so upper and lower
(c) Assemble the spring loaded extension
adapter plates and their adjusting pins
between the upper and lower adapter
Failure to thoroughly clean bores

(c) Measure the present depths of the sleeve
the front and rear of each counterbore,
and record. The specified original depth
of the counterbore for cylinder sleeve is
.460 inch to .462 inch.
Cylinder block top decks, especially
on older engines, are not necessarily
square with the sleeve bores.
(3) Installation of Tool in Block.
(a) Loosen the two small set screws (fig.
108) which secure the tool bit
in the tool
holder and retract the tool bit into the tool
holder by turning the tool bit "T" handle
counterclockwise as far as possible by
hand. This will raise the tool bit to a safe
position so its cutting edge cannot be
damaged while installing tool assembly in
cylinder block sleeve bores.
(b) Retract the centralizing pins in the lower
and upper adapter plates.
