Repair Time Schedule


The total labour allowance will be a maximum of one and a half hours.

Solution
Inspect the nuts in order to determine if the nuts are secure. Inspect the rocker shaft and associated
components for wear or for damage.
If there is no wear or damage, ensure that the nuts that secure the rocker shaft are tightened to the correct
torque. Refer to Disassembly and Assembly (KENR6226), ‘Rocker Shaft and Pushrod - Install’ for the correct
torque value.
