Note:It is critical during installationto ensure the bearing rear cap and cylinder head alignment is correctand the mating surfaces are flush.

Ensure that all sealing material has been removed fromthe components, and the sealing surfaces are clean and free of contaminationprior to applying the sealer.Install and align the rear cap within 20-minutesof applying the sealer.

Note:Apply the sealer to all locations centrallylocating the bead on the rail.

Run bead to 5.0-mm, dimension a, as shown.Where the cap ends on the perimeter rail, extend beadapproximately 4.0-mm beyond edge of cap.Run bead, dimension c, 32-mm from the edge of thecylinder head as shown.Run beads, dimension b, 20-mm from edge of cylinderhead as shown.Apply a 2.5-mm bead of sealer to the cylinder head atthe number 6 intake camshaft rear cap mating surface. Refer toAdhesives, Fluids, Lubricants, and Sealers.Install the number 6 intake camshaft rear cap.Tighten the cap bolts evenly to 5-Y(44 lb in).Tighten the cap bolts evenly to 10-Y(89 lb in).Back the cap bolts out 120-degrees.Tighten the cap bolts evenly a final pass to 10-Y (89-lb-in).
