Examine wear plate (15, fig. 3-60). Circular patterns burnished on the surface of the
cam plate are normal, If the circular patterns on the wear plate are extensive and can be felt with the
fingernail or if angular scratches are evident, the plate must be discarded. (Refer to fig. 3-79.) Install
new dowel pin (9, fig. 3-60), if previously removed, by tapping in with a light weight hammer.
Figure 3-79. Inspecting Cam Wear Plate.
Match up dowel pin (9) with hole in wear plate (15) and seat plate (17). (Refer to fig.
3-80.) Check for proper seating by pushing down on first one edge then the other in a rocking motion.
If any looseness is felt, remove wear plate (15, fig. 3-60) and clean the cam assembly and wear plate to
remove any foreign particles from beneath the wear plate (15). Reposition wear plate (15) and again
check for proper seating. If wear plate (15) still does not seat properly, check wear plate (15) for flat-
ness and replace if necessary.
