SERVICE BULLETIN Step

Procedure

6

This will relieve the pressure from both hydraulic tappets. Now the rocker arm shaft (9) may be easily pulled out. Lift out both rocker arms (10) and (11).

7

Replace only affected parts as per section 2.3). See also Fig. 3.

8

Apply KLÜBER ISOFLEX TOPAS NB 5051 (16) on both push-rod ball sockets and contact areas of rocker arm and slide push-rod into the oil return tube (20).

9

Check bushing and rocker arm shaft according to latest Maintenance Manual Heavy.

10

Put oil on the rocker arm bushing.

11

Place rocker arm left (10) and rocker arm right (11) in cylinder head, apply KLÜBER ISOFLEX TOPAS NB 5051 (16) on rocker arm shaft (9) and insert it into its bearing support.

12

Loosen valve spring loading jig and support plate.

13

When removing the valve spring loading jig , make sure the adapter rings (15) do not jam on the valve spring retainer.

14

NOTE:

15

Only when you have an Criterion B) Spare parts affected engine and only if engine is equiped with collar cap nuts M8 wrench size 13: Mount collar cap nut (6) according to latest Maintenance Manual Heavy or SI-912-025/SI-914-026/SI-912 i-010.

Lubricate all moving parts in the rocker arm space with engine oil or equivalent.

3.1.4) Install valve cover See Fig. 2. Step

Procedure

1

Clean the sealing surface of cylinder head and valve cover with a suitable lint-free cloth or equivalent.

2

Insert new O-ring (4) 105x2.5 and O-ring (5) 6.4x1.8 into the valve cover (3).

3

Fit valve cover.

WARNUNG m NOTICE

Between the valve covers a gap of min. 0,1 mm (.004 in.) must remain. The covers must not touch each other.

Step 4

Procedure Tighten the new Allen screw (1) M6x30 with washer (2) to 10 Nm (89 in.lb). Carefully inspect the length of the valve cover screw. Inspect whether thread is damaged. If the screw is loose or the valve cover leaking, the oil will not return into the oil tank by ”blow-by gas” and the oil system will not properly function. Improper installation of the valve cover could lead to loss of crankcase pressure.
