REPAIR The procedures for repair will be similar for most components and parts that make up the engine. Any repair procedure that is peculiar to a specific part or component is covered in the paragraph relating to the item. After repair, clean all parts thoroughly to prevent metal chips or abrasives, that may accu- mulate during repair, from entering moving parts of engine. CASTINGS 1. Replace  all  cracked  castings. 2. Replace  all  castings  that  do  not  meet  specifications  given  in  paragraph  relating  to  that  item. 3.
