block is very important.
The allowable standout is
0.002 to 0.005 inch. Measure cylinder sleeve stand-
out as follows:
(a) Using a depth micrometer, measure
depth of cylinder sleeve counterbore in the cylinder
block (measure at two more locations). The depth
should be 0. 315 to 0. 3165 inch.
(b) Using a micrometer, measure width of
cylinder sleeve flange (measure at three or more
The width should be 0.3185 to 0. 320 inch.
(c) Subtract counterbore depth from width
of cylinder sleeve flange.
The result is the cylinder
sleeve standout. If the standout is not within 0. 002 to
0.005 inch, install a cylinder sleeve shim of the prop-
er thickness in the sleeve counterbore to bring the
standout within the allowable limits.
shims are available in 0.005-, 0. 010-, 0. 010-,
0.015- and 0. 020-inch thickness.
If shimming will
not correct the cylinder sleeve standout, reworking
of the counterbore will be necessary.
(6) To double check the cylinder sleeve standout,
insert sleeve with shims into the cylinder block. To
hold flange of sleeve firmly against the counterbore
seat in the cylinder block, make up a bar similar to
the one illustrated in figure 14-44. Place bar across
top of sleeve and secure in position with 9/16-12 cap-
screws and flat washers.
Tighten capscrews evenly to
60 foot-pounds torque.
Using a depth micrometer,
measure the distance between the top of the block and
top of the sleeve flange at three or more locations.
Make certain the standout measurements are made
from the top of the cylinder block to the top of the
sleeve flange and not on the firewall.
(7) Remove sleeve.

a. Cylinder Sleeve Installation.
(1) Two packing rings are used on each cylin-
one black on water side, one red on oil
Rubber packing rings are easily damaged.
Use extreme care in handling and install-
ing them in order not to cut or shear them.
Rings swell and expand after short contact
with petroleum products and certain types
of permanent anti-freeze.
them to drop out of their cylinder sleeve
grooves and their installation in the cylin-
der block becomes impossible. Do not
pre-soak or apply lubricant to a ring.
(2) Thoroughly clean the packing ring grooves
in the cylinder sleeve.
Stand sleeve on a clean work
bench with packing ring end up. Install black on
bottom groove; install red on top groove. The rings
must be installed dry without lubrication of any kind.
New cylinder sleeve packing rings must be
used at each installation of a new or used
Make certain rings are not twisted.
(3) Brush a light coat of vegetable or mineral
oil in lower sleeve bore in cylinder block. Be ex-
tremely careful so packing rings are not cut on sharp
edges of bore in block when installing.
Do not use any other lubricant except vege-
table or mineral oil; doing so prevents
proper installation and operation.
(4) Install cylinder sleeve as follows:
(a) Insert cylinder sleeve installer tool in
Brush bore of tool with a light coat
of vegetable or mineral oil.
(b) Position cylinder sleeve with packing
(c) Carefully force the cylinder sleeve into
the sleeve lower bore of the cylinder block.
b. Crankshaft Installation.
(1) Install the upper halves of
shells in position with tang of bearing
