      Minimum overall length
      109.90 mm (4.3268 in.)

      If the overall length is less than the minimum, replace the exhaust valve.

  4. INSPECT INTAKE VALVE SEAT


    1. A0019FYE01
      *1 Width

      Apply a light coat of Prussian blue to the valve face.

    2. Lightly press the valve face against the valve seat.

      Tech Tips

      Do not rotate the valve while pressing the valve.

    3. Check the valve face and valve seat.


      1. Check that the contact surfaces of the valve seat and valve face are in the middle area of their respective surfaces, with the width between 1.1 to 1.5 mm (0.0433 to 0.0591 in.).

        If not, correct the valve seat.

      2. Check that the contact surfaces of the valve seat and valve face are even around the entire valve seat.

        If not, correct the valve seat.

  5. INSPECT EXHAUST VALVE SEAT


    1. A001A1NE01
      *1 Width

      Apply a light coat of Prussian blue to the valve face.

    3. Check the valve face and valve seat.


      1. Check that the contact surfaces of the valve seat and valve face are in the middle area of their respective surfaces, with the width between 1.1 to 1.5 mm (0.0433 to 0.0591 in.).

      If the deviation is greater than the maximum, replace the spring.

  7. INSPECT VALVE GUIDE BUSH OIL CLEARANCE

      Maximum oil clearance
      Item Specified Condition

      1. Install the bank 1 camshafts.

      2. A001E4I

        Using a dial indicator, measure the thrust clearance while moving the camshaft back and forth.

        Standard thrust clearance
        0.08 to 0.13 mm (0.0031 to 0.0051 in.)
        Maximum thrust clearance
        0.15 mm (0.0059 in.)
