ENGINE DIVISION SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 ENGINE is  square  with  the  cylinder  wall.    Check  the  space  or  gap between  the  ends  of  the  ring  with  a  feeler  gauge,  Figure  99. See specifications for proper ring gap. NOTE: Extreme  care  should  be  taken  during  this operation. Fig. 99 Checking Ring Gap 1. Piston ring 2. Feeler Gauge If the gap on the compression rings is less than the limit, try the next size smaller ring. Each ring should be fitted and  checked  in  the  cylinder  in  which  it  is  to  be  used  and marked accordingly. Piston rings should be checked for side clearance in the  groove  of  the  piston  on  which  they  are  to  be  installed. This is done by placing the outer edge of the ring in the piston groove, rolling the ring entirely around the piston to make sure the ring is free in the groove.  With a feeler gauge check the side clearance Fig. 100  Checking Ring-to-Groove Side Clearance with Feeler Gauge 1. Feeler Gauge 2. Piston ring of   each   ring   in   its   respective   groove,   Figure   100.      See specifications for proper clearance. Assemble the rings on the pistons to which they were fitted by using a piston suitable ring expander tool.  This type of  tool  is  recommended  to  avoid  over-expanding  and  also  to expand the ring to a true circle to avoid distortion, Figure 101. General  practice  is  to  stagger  the  ring  gaps  when  installing piston  rings.    For  further  information  refer  to  the  instructions furnished with the service ring sets.

The   cylinder   heads,   as   removed   from   the   engine, contain the valve mechanism. The rocker arms were removed prior to removing the heads.  Position the cylinder head on the intake  manifold  surface  on  a  clean  work  bench  or  install  the cylinder    head    in    holding    fixture    SE-1939    to    protect    the machined surfaces during cleaning and disassembly operations. With  the  valves  installed  to  protect  the  seats,  clean the carbon deposits from the combustion chambers and valve heads   with   a   wire   brush   and   scraper.   Wash   the   heads   in cleaning  solvent  to  remove  dirt  and  grease  from  all  surfaces and dry thoroughly.  Check all water passages to make sure they are clear and open. Examine the cylinder heads for water leaks or cracks in  the  combustion  chambers,  exhaust  ports  and  around  the valve seats.  Inspect the machined or gasket CGES-210  Page 37 PRINTED IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
