dinarily they should be in good condition. Replace
defective oil seals.
(g) Inspect the hardware for bad threads, rust,
or damage incurred during removal. If the screws have
bad threads, replace the screws. Repair the mounting

(b) Inspect the camshaft for alinement, scoring,
and roughness on the cams and journals. Repair any
slight roughness, or replace a badly scored camshaft.
(c) Measure the camshaft journals and cams.
Replace the camshaft if either the journals or cams are
worn beyond the limits of allowable wear. The no. 1
camshaft journal should be between 1.8725 and 1.8730
inches. The smaller no. 2 journal should be between
1.2475 and 1.2480 inches.
(d) Measure the camshaft journals and the
camshaft bores in the crankcase. If the difference in
diameters exceeds 0.0035 inch, and the camshaft is
within the wear tolerances, replace the crankcase. If
the difference in diameter is less than 0.002 inch, ream
and hone the crankshaft bores.
