Cylinder Head Cover Removal Note

1. Remove the purge solenoid valve installation bracket with the evaporative hose still connected and set it out of the way.


2. Loosen the cylinder head cover bolts in the order shown in the figure.


Crankshaft Pulley Lock Bolt Removal Note

1. Rotate the crankshaft in the direction of the engine rotation and remove the cylinder block lower blind plug when the No. 1 cylinder is at the point prior to top dead center (TDC) of compression, then install the SST

.


2. Rotate the crankshaft in the direction of the engine rotation so that the No.1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke. (Until the counterweight contacts SST

and stops.)

3. Hold the crankshaft pulley by using the SSTs

.


No.3 Engine Mount Removal Note

1. Remove the air cleaner..

2. Install the SST

using the following procedures.


CAUTION:

a. Remove the installation bolt for the bracket securing the lower radiator hose.


b. Set the bracket securing the lower radiator hose aside to prevent it from interfering with the front shaft of the SST

(right side).

c. As shown in the figure, set the rear shafts of the SST

to the left and right shock absorber bolts.


d. Install front foot No.2 to the left/right front shaft of the SST

, then align the groove of the front shaft of the SST

with the folded up part of the vehicle as shown in the figure.


e. Adjust the positions of the SST

side bars so that they are the same height (left and right) and horizontal. Make sure each joint is securely tightened.


Chain Tensioner Removal Note

1. Using a thin screwdriver, hold the chain tensioner ratchet lock mechanism away from the ratchet stem.

2. Slowly compress the tensioner piston.

3. Hold the tensioner piston using a 1.5 mm {0.059 in}

wire or paper clip.


Oil Pump Sprocket Removal/Installation Note

1. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley and crankshaft pulley lock bolt to the crankshaft, and lock the oil pump against rotation as shown in figure.


2. Remove/install the oil pump sprocket, and then remove the crankshaft pulley and crankshaft pulley lock bolt.
