TESTING AND ADJUSTING
Install test plug (17) and check the adjustment of
rocker arm (10). The roller on the rocker arm must just
clear (be just above) the top of test plug (17) when the
rocker arm is moved to either the extended or retracted
If an adjustment is needed, see
MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURES in
Special Instruction, Form No. SEHS7788. While test
plug (17) is still in position, check the tester for leaks.

around it, and is then sent to test pressure valve (9),
through sight tube (1). It then returns to the reservoir in
the base of the tester.
When test pressure valve (9) is in the "CLOSED"
position, test fluid cannot go back to the reservoir c when
handle (4) is operated. This causes high pressure in
injector holding block (5), and in the injector. This high
pressure is used to test the injector for external (outer)
leakage and leakdown rate (amount of time for pressure
drop between the specific pressure limits).
