3304 VEHICULAR ENGINES
Face Runout (axial eccentricity) of the Flywheel Housing:
1. Fasten a dial indicator to the crankshaft flange so the anvil of the
indicator will touch the face of the flywheel housing.
2. Put a force on the crankshaft toward the rear before reading the
indicator at each point.
3. With dial indicator set at .000 in. (0.0 mm) at location (A), turn the
crankshaft and read the indicator at locations (B), (C) and (D).
4. The difference between lower and higher measurements taken
all four points must not be more than .012 in. (0.30 mm), which is
the maximum permissible face runout (axial eccentricity) of the
