sleeves in contact areas if scratches or grooving is present.
Inspect crankshaft (4) for deep scores, signs of overheating, and other abnormal marks. If scarred
deeply, showing signs of overheating, or abnormally marked, use oversized bearings during
Inspect ring dowel (6) for damage. If damaged, replace ring dowel (6).
