Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not
exceed 30 PSI. Use only with effective chip guard-
ing and personal protective equipment (goggles/
shield, gloves, etc.).
Inspect the cover (35) bronze face for signs of cavitation, excessive wear, contamination
or other damage. (Refer to fig. 3-90.) If circular wear patterns cannot be felt with a fingernail and if
there are no nicks, scratches, or other damage, one or two passes over 500 grit emery paper on a lap
table, will put the bronze face in like-new condition. If scratches or the wear patterns can be felt, pass
across 500 grit emery cloth as described above until scratches can no longer be felt. Every effort must
be made to remove any scratches that cross the lands on either side of the kidneys. Degrease the cover
in a commercial degreaser, such as tricholoroethylene and blow dry with compressed air. Check the re-
worked cover (35) against tolerances in figure 3-91. If the cover (35) does not fall within tolerance
limits, it must be discarded.
If cover roller bearing (41, fig. 3-60) was removed from the cover (35) during disassem-
bly, install cover roller bearing (41) in cover (35) using an arbor press and plug of proper size. It is
important that the cover roller bearing (41) be replaced as a set only.
Fill pistons (16) with new transmission oil allowing a small excess to spill over the face
of the cylinder block assembly (23).
Place a new gasket (28) on housing (28) and position cover (35), utilizing reference
marks in housing (28) and cover (35). Install six capscrews (36) and lockwashers (6) and torque bolts in
an opposite pattern to 38 lb-h (52 Nm). (Refer to fig. 3-92.)
