Machining the cylinder head mating

Checking cylinder head for distortion

Using a feeler gauge and ruler or straight edge, check the cylinder head mating face for distortion.

Admissible distortion of the mating face: 0.05 mm

Distorted cylinder heads may be repaired by machining the mating face. Admissible distortion after machining: 0.03 mm.

Machining the cylinder head

Reface cylinder head mating face only until the surface is level. Max. wear limit: 146,6 mm

Note for refacing the mating face: Max. roughness = 0,015 mm

If the new-dimension tolerance is exceeded during machining, a cylinder head gasket with a thickness of 1.4 mm must be fitted.

New dimension A = 147 ±0.1 mm Wear limit A =146.6 mm
