(4) Measure the valve stem guide clearance as follows:
(a) Install sleeve tool C-3973 over the valve stem
the valve at the correct height for a dial indicator.
(d) Slowly turn the reamer by hand and clean the
guide thoroughly before installing a new valve.
Do not attempt to ream the valve guides
from standard directly to 0.030 inch. If it
is necessary to go to 0.030 inch, use a
step procedure of 0.005, 0.015, and 0.030
inch so the valve guides may be reamed
true in relation to the valve seat.
