1 /16 inch
(4) Measure the runout of the valve seat using a dial
indicator. Total runout should not exceed 0.002 inch.
(5) Check the valve seat with Prussian blue to deter-
mine where the valve contacts the seat. To do this, coat the
valve seat lightly with Prussian blue then set it in place.
Rotate the valve with light pressure. [f the blue is transferred
to the center of the valve face, contact is satisfactory. If
the blue is transferred to the top edge of the valve face, lower
the valve seat with a 30-degree stone. If the blue is transfer-
red to the bottom edge of the valve face, raise the valve seat
with a 60-degree stone.
(6) When the seat is properly positioned, the width of
intake seats should be l/16 to 3/32 inch. The width of the
exhaust seats should be 3/64 to 1/16 inch.
e. Testing Valve Springs. Test the valve springs when-
ever the valves have been removed for inspection, recondi-
tioning, or replacement.

tone device. Then pull on the torque wrench until you hear
the tone device ping. The reading on the torque wrench at
this instant should be 88 to 96 ft-lbs (equivalent to 177 to
192 pounds of pressure).
(2) Exhaust valve springs. Use the compression testing
procedure for intake valve springs, but set the table to the
1-5/16 inch mark. When the tester's tone device pings, the
torque wrench reading should be 90 to 97 ft-lbs (equivalent
to 180 to 194 pounds of pressure).
