CLEARANCES AND TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS
Clearances of new parts and wear limits on used parts are listed in tabular form at the end of each section
throughout the manual. It should be specifically noted that the New Parts clearances apply only when all new
parts are used at the point where the various specifications apply. This also applies to references within the
text of the manual. The column entitled Limits lists the amount of wear or increase in clearance which can be
tolerated in used engine parts and still assure satisfactory performance. It should be emphasized that the
figures given as Limits must be qualified by the judgement of personnel responsible for installing new parts.
These wear limits are, in general, listed only for the parts more frequently replaced in engine overhaul work.
For additional information, refer to the paragraph entitled Inspection under General Procedures in this section.
Bolt, nut, and stud torque specifications are also listed in tabular form at the end of each section.
