1. CLEAN CYLINDER BLOCK
A. Remove gasket material
Using a gasket scraper, remove all the gasket material from the top surface of the cylinder block.
B. Clean cylinder block
Using a soft brush and solvent, thoroughly clean the cylinder block.
2. INSPECT TOP SURFACE OF CYLINDER BLOCK FOR FLATNESS
Using a precision straight edge and feeler gauge, measure the surfaces contacting the cylinder head gasket for warpage.
Maximum warpage: 0.05 mm (0.0020 in.)
If warpage is greater than maximum, replace the cylinder block.
3. INSPECT CYLINDER FOR VERTICAL SCRATCHES
Visually check the cylinder for vertical scratches.
If deep scratches are present, rebore all the four cylinders. If necessary, replace the cylinder block.
4. INSPECT CYLINDER BORE DIAMETER
HINT: There are three sizes of the standard cylinder bore diameter, marked "1", "2" and "3" accordingly. The mark is stamped on the top of the cylinder block.
Using a cylinder gauge, measure the cylinder bore diameter at positions A, B and C in the thrust axial directions.
Standard diameter: STD Mark "1"
87.000 - 87.010 mm (3.4252-3.4256 in.) 87.010-87.020 mm (3.4256-3.4260 in.) 87.020 - 87.030 mm (3.4260-3.4264 in.)
Maximum diameter STD
If the diameter is greater than maximum, rebore all the four cylinders. If necessary, replace the cylinder block.
5. REMOVE CYLINDER RIDGE
If the wear is less than 0.2 mm (0.008 in.), using a ridge reamer, grind the top of the cylinder.
