BobCat E35 – CYLINDER HEAD – Cylinder Head Top Clearance

Install the cylinder head gasket. Put the piston (Item 1) [Figure 60-80-23] being checked at T.D.C.

Put three pieces of 1,5 mm (0.06 in) diameter solder (Item 2) [Figure 60-80-23] on the top of the piston. Use grease to hold them in position.

NOTE: Put the solder in position so they do not touch the valves.

Turn the piston to bottom dead center.

Install the cylinder head and tighten to the correct torque in the correct sequence. (See Cylinder Head Removal And Installation on Page 60-80-4.)

Turn the crankshaft until the piston exceeds T.D.C. Remove the cylinder head.

Remove the solder (Item 3) [Figure 60-80-23] and measure it.

If the measurement exceeds the specifications, check the oil clearance of the crank pin journal or the piston pin.
