Hi. Engine on excavator Caterpillar 321BLCR
Valve Lash Setting with Stopped Engine (Cold)Inlet and Exhaust Valve ... 0.25 mm (0.010 inch)Turn the crankshaft in a counterclockwise direction until the No. 1 piston is at the top center on the compression stroke. The rotation of the crankshaft is viewed from the rear of the engine. The alignment mark on the pulley assembly will be in alignment with the timing pointer.Note: The crankshaft may be turned by using a socket wrench on the bolt in the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft may also be turned by turning the alternator. This will turn the belt and this will turn the crankshaft pulley.3066 Engine: Adjust the valve lash on the inlet valves for cylinders 1, 2, and 4. Adjust the valve lash on the exhaust valves for cylinders 1, 3, and 5.
Turn the flywheel for 360 degrees in the direction of engine rotation. The No. 4 piston (four cylinder) and the No. 6 piston (six cylinder) will be at the top center (TC) on the compression stroke.
