Х
Thoroughly clean all parts to be assembled.
Х
Always use a new cylinder head and manifold gasket.
Х
Always use new cylinder head bolts. Cylinder head bolts are toque-to-yield bolts designed to be permanently elongated beyond the state of elasticity when torqued, so if the bolts are removed and reused, it may cause the bolts to break or fail to maintain clamping force.
Х
The cylinder head gasket is a metal gasket. Take care not to bend it.
Х
Rotate the crankshaft, set the No.1 piston at TDC.
1.
Install the cylinder head assembly.
(1)
Before installing, remove the hardened sealant from the cylinder block and cylinder head surface.
(2)
Before installing the cylinder head gasket, apply sealant on the upper surface of the cylinder block and reassemble the gasket within five minutes.

  
Refer to the illustration for applying sealant.

Width : 2.0 ~ 3.0mm(0.0787~0.1181in.)
Position : 1.0 ~ 1.5mm(0.0394~0.0591in.)
Specification : TB 1217H or LOCTITE 5900H

(3)
After installing the cylinder head gasket on the cylinder block, apply sealant on the upper surface of the cylinder head gasket and reassemble in five minutes.
2.
Place the cylinder head carefully not to damage the gasket.
3.
Install the cylinder head bolts with washers.
(1)
Tighten the 10 cylinder head bolts, in several passes, in the sequence shown.

Tightening torque :
29.4Nm (3.0kgf.m, 21.7lb-ft) + 90∞ + 90∞

  
Always use new cylinder head bolts. Cylinder head bolts are toque-to-yield bolts designed to be permanently elongated beyond the state of elasticity when torqued, so if the bolts are removed and reused, it may cause the bolts to break or fail to maintain clamping force.

Perform the following :
Х
Refill engine with engine oil.
Х
Refill a radiator and a reservoir tank with engine coolant.
Х
Inspect for fuel leakage.
-
After assemble the fuel line, turn on the ignition switch (do not operate the starter) so that the fuel pump runs for approximately two seconds and fuel line pressurizes.
-
Repeat this operation two or three times, then check for fuel leakage at any point in the fuel line.
Х
Bleed air from the cooling system.
-
Start engine and let it run until it warms up. (until the radiator fan operates 3 or 4 times.)
-
Turn Off the engine. Check the level in the radiator, add coolant if needed. This will allow trapped air to be removed from the cooling system.
-
Put radiator cap on tightly, then run the engine again and check for leaks.
