CRANKSHAFT, MAIN BEARINGS, FLYWHEEL & CRANKCASE
Figure 14. - Checking the Concentricity of the Flywheel
Housing Bore in Relation to the Axis of the Crankshaft.
Inspect the Crankcase as follows:
Check the crankcase deck for "PULLED" thread
holes which may interfere with the head and
gasket fit. Lightly file these areas to restore
NOTE: DO NOT resurface the block. Any defects in
necessitates crankcase replacement.
Threaded holes with damaged threads may be
salvaged with "Heli-Coil Repair." 3.400
Only: Inspect the lower cylinder sleeve pilot bore
for erosion. If a possibility exists that water
leakage may occur from erosion, machine the
lower bore as follows:
Rework the crankcase as shown in Fig. 15.
Adhere to specified dimensions.

block, and around the O.D. of the repair
When the primer is dry (approximately 30
seconds) apply "Loctite Bushing Mount" to
the O.D. of the repair insert.
NOTE: DO NOT wipe off any primer since it is a
catalyst that insures the proper curing of the
