Make sure packing is not twisted, otherwise poor sealing and equipment damage will occur.
FIGURE 3-166. Location of Cylinder Liner Square Packing
Slide packing down firmly against shoulder on liner.
Coat liner packings (A and B, FIGURE 3-165), sealing area of the cylinder liner and engine block packing
(A, FIGURE 3-166) with liner lubricant.
Carefully place cylinder liner, with packing installed, into cylinder block bore. Do not scuff packing across
When OD of liners are pitted or eroded, but still within the acceptable service limit, rotate liners 90
degrees from their removed position. Rotate pitted section of liner either toward front or rear of
engine. If liners are not pitted or eroded, rotation will not be necessary. Install liners with mark
toward the front of engine.
A resistance will be felt when cylinder liner is aligned in pilot bore.
Seat liners (9, FIGURE 3-143) with wood block and hammer.
Cylinder liner (9) will protrude over top of cylinder block more than normal due to uncompressed packings.
If you suspect that a packing may have sheared or displaced while installing liner, remove and
examine liner and packing assembly. If no damage is found, check packings for proper position,
relubricate packings and reinstall liner assembly.
With liners installed, hold in place with large flatwashers and capscrews, refer to FIGURE 3-140. Turn
capscrews snug but do not tighten.
