Crankshaft Runout Inspection

Measure the crankshaft runout.
Set the crankshaft in a flywheel alignment jig or on V
blocks.
Set a dial gauge against the points indicated.
Turn the crankshaft slowly to measure the runout. The dif-
ference between the highest and lowest dial gauge read-
ings (TIR) is the amount of runout.
If the measurement exceeds the service limit, replace the
crankshaft.

Crankshaft Main Bearing Insert/Journal Clearance
Inspection
Measure the bearing insert/journal clearance using a
plastigage.
Split the crankcase and wipe each bearing insert and jour-
nal surface clean of oil.
Cut strips of plastigage to bearing insert width, and place
a strip on each journal parallel to the crankshaft so that the
plastigage will be compressed between the journal and
the bearing insert.
Install the lower crankcase half, and tighten the case bolts
to the specified torque.
Torque - Crankcase 8 mm Bolts: 27 N·m (2.8 kgf·m, 20 ft·lb)
Crankcase 6 mm Bolts: 12 N·m (1.2 kgf·m, 104
