  • FIG : Fig. 14: Tighten the cylinder head bolts in the sequence shown to ensure proper cylinder head sealing image


    Apply clean engine oil to the camshaft bearing surfaces. Apply silicone sealant to the mating surface of bearing cap No. 6. The camshaft bearing caps are marked with their position numbers (No. 1 is the foremost cap, and No. 6 is the rearmost bearing cap). Install bearing cap No. 1 first, then install the remaining bearing caps. Oil the camshaft bearing cap bolt threads, then tighten all of them first to 24 inch lbs. (2.7 Nm), then to 48 inch lbs.
