kgcm2) or less. When working with compressed air always use chip guards, eye protection, and
other personal protective equipment.
If a new camshaft is to be installed, steam clean camshaft to remove rust preventive.
Blow out camshaft oil passages and dry camshaft with compressed air.
After camshaft has been steam cleaned, do not touch machined surfaces with bare hands. This will

around the camshaft, do not use the camshaft. Gear movement on camshaft may
Replace camshaft (1) if excessive damage is present.
Measure camshaft in gear mounting area using micrometer. The outside diameter must be between
1.8005 and 1.8010 inches (45.733 and 45.745 mm).
