Series 60 Service Information
The cylinder liner protrusion specification has been updated in the Series 60 Service Manual.
Details & Reason
It has been validated that the former specification of 0.000-0.076 mm (0.000-003 in.) can be increased while still maintaining sufficient clamp load on the gasket, also considering the recent increase in the compression ring wire diameter and head bolt torque specification. The new liner protrusion specification is -0.0127-0.0762 mm (-0.0005-0.003 in.) listed in Table 1.
|Engine Part (Standard|
