E: INSPECTION

1. INTAKE VALVE ROCKER ASSEMBLY

1) If the roller or valve contact surface of valve rocker arm is worn or dented excessively, replace the valve rocker assembly.

2) Check that the valve rocker arm roller rotates smoothly. If not, replace the valve rocker assembly.

2. EXHAUST VALVE ROCKER ASSEMBLY

1) Measure the inner diameter of valve rocker arm and outer diameter of valve rocker shaft, and confirm the difference (oil clearance) between the two values.

Clearance between arm and shaft:
Standard
0.020 - 0.054 mm (0.0008 - 0.0021 in)

2) If the oil clearance exceeds the limit, replace the valve rocker arm or shaft, whichever shows the greater amount of wear.

Rocker arm inside diameter:
Standard
22.020 - 22.041 mm (0.8669 - 0.8678 in)

Rocker shaft diameter:
Standard
21.987 - 22.000 mm (0.8656 - 0.8661 in)

3) If the roller or valve contact surface of valve rocker arm is worn or dented excessively, replace the valve rocker arm.

4) Check that the valve rocker arm roller rotates smoothly. If not, replace the valve rocker arm.
