• Do not tap the areas protruding around the pipes, brackets or tank ribs.
• The dotted circles shown in the illustration and parts of the oil cooler near the dotted circles cannot be tapped with the SST. Use pliers or similar objects and be careful not to damage the core plates.
(g) Check the lock plate height (H) after completing caulking. Plate height (H): 7.40 to 7.80 mm (0.2913 to 0.3071 in.)
If not within the specified height range, adjust the stopper bolt of the handle and caulk again.
