Repeat steps a through h, above, for each cylinder head to be installed.
Using driver ST-1 319, drive the water transfer tubes (22) into the rocker arm housings (20), and install the
k. Starting at the center of the rocker arm housing (20) cross-tighten the capscrews (1 8) in three stages to a final
torque of 60 to 70 pound-feet (81 to 95 newton-meters).
Install the push rods in the same holes from which they were removed.
Install the fuel injectors in accordance with paragraph 6-18.
Install the rocker arms and crossheads as follows: (1) Install adjusting screws (10, Figure 9-1) and locknuts (9) in

intake rocker arm (14). Install locknuts (15) on the adjusting screws. Do not tighten the locknuts at this
Install the rocker arms (12, 13, and 14) on the rocker arm shaft (11), so that the counterbore in the shaft
will fit over the ring dowel (24) in the rocker arm housing (20).
Tilt the rocker arms so that the ball-ends of the adjusting screws (16) enter the push rod sockets, and install
the assembly so that the counterbore in the shaft (11) fits over the ring dowel (24).
Check to be certain that the ball-ends of the adjusting screws (16) remain in the push rod sockets; adjust
the screws (1 6), if necessary, to keep the ball-ends in the sockets.
Using washers (10), install capscrews (8 and 9) through the shaft (11) into the rocker arm housing (20).
Cross-tighten capscrews (8 and 9) in three stages to a final torque of 60 to 70 pound-feet (81 to 95 newton-
Adjust the injector travel and rocker arm clearance in accordance with the Operator and Organizational
Using a new gasket (7), install the rocker arm cover (6) with plain washers (2), capscrew and lockwasher
(1), two lockwashers (4), two plain washers (5), and hexagon head capscrews (3).
Cross-tighten the capscrews and lockwashers (1) and hexagon head screws (3) in three stages to a final
torque of 30 to 35 pound-feet (41 to 47 newton-meters).
Install the fuel manifolds in accordance with paragraph 6-26.
