Dry cleaning solvent P-D-680 (safety or Stoddards solvent) is potentially dangerous. Avoid repeated and
prolonged breathing of vapors and skin contact with the liquid. Do not use near open flame, arcing
equipment or other ignition sources. Always wear eye protection and protective clothing. The flash point
of P-D-680 is 100 to 138 deg. F (30 to 59 deg. C).
Death or serious injury could occur if compressed air is directed against the skin. Do not use compressed
air for cleaning or drying unless the pressure is/has been reduced to 30 psi (2.11 kg/cm2) or less. When

Use a small wire to clean out the drilled od passages in the rocker arms and rocker shaft bolts.
Inspect the rocker arm shaft and rocker arm bushings for wear. A maximum shaft to bushing clearance
of 0.004 in. (0.10 mm) is allowable with used parts. Service replacement bushings must be reamed to
size after installation.
Inspect the rocker arms for galling or wear on the pallets (valve or Injector contact surfaces) If worn, the
surface may be refaced up to a maximum of 0.010 in. (0.25 mm). However, proceed with caution when
surface grinding to avoid overheating the rocker arm. Maintain the radius and finish as close to the
original surface as possible. Also inspect the valve bridges for wear.
