3-164.1. CYLINDER HEAD - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (Continued).

fer to para-
If the cylinder head is to be disassembled for re-
conditioning of the exhaust valves and valve seat
inserts or for a complete overhaul, remove fuel pipes
and injectors at this time. See paragraph 3-147 for
removal of the injectors.
Check the torque on cylinder head bolts and stud nuts
(if used) before removing the head. Then remove bolts
and nuts and lift the cylinder head from the cylinder
block. If interference is encountered between the rear
end of the right-back cylinder head and any of the
flywheel attaching bolts, loosen the bolts. Checking the
torque before removing the head bolts and examining
the condition of the compression gaskets and seals
after the head is removed may reveal the causes of any
cylinder head problems.
When placing the cylinder head assembly on a bench,
protect cam followers and injector spray tips, if the
injectors were not removed, by resting the valve side of
the head on 2 inch (5.08 cm) wood blocks.
Remove fourteen bolts.
