POSITIVE CLOSED-TYPE CRANKCASE
Do not attempt to clean the crankcase ventilation
regulator valve; it should be replaced at the specified
maintenance interval. The oil filler cap and oil separator
should be cleaned at the proper maintenance interval.
Remove the cap and the oil separator and wash them in a low-

Replace the head if it is cracked. Do not plane or grind
more than 0.010 inch from the cylinder head gasket
surface. Remove all burrs or scratches with an oil stone.
REAMING VALVE GUIDES
If it becomes necessary to ream a valve guide (Figure 23)
to install a valve with an oversize stem, a reaming kit is
available which contains the following reamer and pilot
diameter pilot, a 0.015-inch OS reamer with a 0.003-inch OS
pilot, and a 0.030-inch reamer with a 0.015-inch OS pilot.
When going from a standard size valve to an oversize
valve always use the reamer in sequence. Always reface the
valve seat after the valve guide has been reamed, and use
a suitable scraper to break the sharp corner (ID) at the top
of the valve guide.
REFACING VALVE SEATS
Refacing the valve seat should be closely coordinated
with the refacing of the valve face so that the finished seat and
valve face will be concentric and the specified interference fit
will be maintained. This is important so that the valve and seat
will have a compression-tight fit. Be sure that the refacer
grinding wheels are properly dressed.
