Figure 1. Camshaft and Related Parts

Note: The Series 60G camshaft has no injector lobe on the cam.

The camshaft is supported by seven bearing assemblies, consisting of precision-type, replaceable bearing shell inserts that are split at their center lines. Current non-tin-plated production bearing shells are identified by their shiny aluminum color. Current tin-plated service bearing shells have a dull gray sheen. The lower bearing shell is positioned in a saddle that is integral with the cylinder head. The upper bearing shell is held in place by a machined camshaft cap. Upper and lower bearing shells are identical and have locating tangs and oil holes. Only the upper bearing shell oil holes index with oil supply holes in the camshaft caps. See Figure "Camshaft and Related Parts" . These camshaft caps are precision line-bored after assembly to the cylinder head. Caps are NOT interchangeable once the head is finished. Caps are numbered and must NOT be interchanged with other caps of the same part number from stock or from a different cylinder head.‪

Figure 8. Rear Camshaft Access Cover

Vertical oil passages at the front and rear of the cylinder head deliver oil from the cylinder block front and rear oil galleries to the No. 1 and 7 lower camshaft bearing saddles. From there, the oil is directed up ward ( through the enlarged stud hole) to the No. 1 and 7 upper bearing caps. A drilled passage in each of these caps exits at the rocker arm shaft seat area, where it indexes with a hole in each rocker arm shaft. The rocker arm shafts have internal oil passages that deliver oil to the rocker arm bushings and intermediate upper camshaft bearings. Some of the oil supplied to the rocker arm bushing passes through the oil hole in the bushing to the rocker arm. The rocker is drilled to supply oil to the camshaft follower, roller pin, and bushing. The rocker is also drilled to supply oil to the valve adjusting screw, valve button, retainer clip, intake, and exhaust valve stems and the fuel injector follower. The No. 4 camshaft cap is “Y” drilled, forming an oil path connection between the front and rear rocker arm shafts, to ensure complete lubrication.

    NOTICE:

    Do not apply oil to the number 1 or number 7 camshaft bearing shells. These shells must be clean and dry for proper sealant application. Applying oil to the number 1 or number 7 shells may result in oil leakage from the camshaft bearing caps. NOTE: The camshaft will still have adequate clearance from the number 1 and number 7 shells due to the oil film thickness on bearings 2 through 6.‪

  7. Coat the number 2 through number 6 bearing shells with clean engine lubricating oil.
  8. For engines built after May 1999, a race track seal is used on the Number 1 bearing cap. For bearing cap Number 7, use one rubber O-ring in the counterbore in the cylinder head. Before assembling the camshaft cap to the cylinder head, ensure the O-ring is in place on the cylinder head.
  9. For engines built prior to May 1999, install the two rubber O-rings to the counterbores in the cylinder head at the Number 1 and 7 camshaft cap locations. Before assembling the camshaft caps to the cylinder head, ensure the two O-rings are in place on the cylinder head.

    NOTICE:

    For proper adhesion, assemble parts while RTV is wet. So not allow RTV to form a skin. Gasket Eliminator must be kept from the bearing shell sets and bearing surfaces. Gasket Eliminator cures with the absence of air. The length of time between installation of the Number 1 and 7 camshaft caps, and torquing the camshaft cap bolts and nuts should be kept to a minimum or improper lubrication will result causing engine damage.‪

  10. Clean and dry the camshaft bearing cap joint face surfaces as well as the portions of the cylinder head face that mate with. These areas must be clean and dry for proper sealant adhesion. Use LPS®, Permatex®, or an equivalent non-filming degreaser.
  11. Apply a continuous 1.6 mm (1/16 in.) bead of DDC gasket eliminator part number 23523064, or equivalent, to the joint face surfaces of the No. 1 and 7 camshaft caps. The bead must extend to the front edge of both caps. See Figure "Gasket Eliminator Application" .

  16. Working through the camshaft drive gear access hole in the front of the gear case, tap the center of the camshaft drive gear with a fiber mallet or plastic hammer to move the camshaft thrust plate, hub and camshaft drive gear rearward in the gear case until the camshaft thrust plate bolts can be started in the cylinder head and No. 1 camshaft cap.

    NOTICE:

    Use care to ensure that the camshaft dowel is not disengaged during this step or damage to engine may result.‪

    NOTICE:

    Use care to prevent dropping thrust plate mounting bolts into the gear case. If not removed, fasteners dropped into the gear case may cause severe engine damage during start-up.‪

  17. Install the thrust plate mounting bolts through the thrust plate and into the cylinder head and No. 1 camshaft cap. Using a 13 mm socket and ratchet, tighten the bolts alternately and progressively to draw the thrust plate straight into the gear case. Torque the bolts to 30-38 N·m (22-28 lb·ft).
  18. Coat the threads and underside of the head of the camshaft drive gear-to-camshaft bolt with International Compound #2 (or equivalent). Install the bolt to the camshaft, finger-tighten.

    Note: The camshaft should be held in place while starting the camshaft drive gear-to-camshaft bolt, to prevent disengaging the camshaft dowel from the thrust plate hub and requiring disassembly and timing of camshaft.

    NOTICE:

    Only retaining tool (J–35652–B) should be used to hold the camshaft drive gear stationary while loosening or tightening the camshaft drive gear-to-camshaft bolt to prevent component damage.‪

  19. Insert retaining tool (J–35652–B) through a lightening hole of the camshaft drive gear.
  20. Bar the engine over slightly to position the camshaft drive gear holding tool so that the bolt holes in the holding tool align with the access cover bolt holes in the gear case cover using the 3/4 in. square hole in the center of the crankshaft pulley to bar the engine over.
  21. Install two of the access cover bolts to secure the tool to the gear case.

  11. Turn the crankshaft slowly in the direction of engine rotation until the indicator hand just stops moving. Continue turning the crankshaft until the indicator hand starts to move again.
  12. Reset the dial to zero.
  13. Turn the crankshaft until the indicator reading is 0.254 mm (0.010 in.).
  14. Scribe a line on the vibration damper in line with the end of the pointer.
  15. Slowly turn the crankshaft opposite the direction of engine rotation until the indicator hand just stops moving. Continue turning the crankshaft until the indicator hand starts to move again.
  16. Reset the dial to zero. Then turn the crankshaft in the same direction until the indicator reading is 0.254 mm (0.010 in.).
  17. Scribe a second line on the vibration damper in line with the end of the pointer.
  18. Scribe a third line half way between the first two lines. This is top dead center for the cylinder selected when the pointer is lined up with it.
  19. Remove the dial indicator and base from the engine.
  20. Install the injector that was removed. Refer to "2.3.5 Installation of the N2 Electronic Unit Injector" .
  21. Install the rocker arm assemblies. Refer to "1.3.3 Installation of Rocker Arm Shaft Assembly" .
  22. Turn the crankshaft opposite the direction of engine rotation while watching the injector rocker arm cam follower for the cylinder selected. Turn the crankshaft until the cam follower is on the base circle of the injector lobe of the cam.
  23. Install a magnetic dial indicator base on the cylinder head. Install a dial indicator so that the spindle rests directly on the injector cam follower roller for the cylinder selected.

    Note: The spindle should be on the center line of the injector cam follower roller pin in order to get an accurate measurement of cam lift.

  24. Turn the crankshaft slowly, in the direction of engine rotation, until the center mark on the vibration damper lines up with the pointer.
  25. Check the dial indicator reading and compare the reading with the values listed in Table "Camshaft Timing Setting Dimensions" to determine the correct indicator reading.

  26. If the camshaft lift is incorrect, re-time the engine. Refer to "1.24.2.1 Check Engine Timing" .
  27. Refer to "12.7 Engine Run-in Instructions" for verification of proper camshaft and camshaft bearing installation.
Section 1.28.6.2
Testing of Camshaft Timing for Natural Gas Engines

Check the camshaft timing as follows:‪

NOTICE:

The camshaft must be in time with the crankshaft. An engine which is "out of time" may result in pre-ignition, uneven running or a loss of power.‪

  1. Remove the valve cover. Refer to "1.6.2 Removal and Cleaning of One-piece Rocker Cover For Diesel Engines Only" for one-piece rocker cover. Refer to "1.6.3 Removal and Cleaning of Two-piece Rocker Cover For Diesel Engines Only" for two-piece rocker cover. Refer to "1.6.5 Removal and Cleaning of Three-piece Rocker Cover" for three-piece rocker cover.
  2. Select any cylinder for the timing check.
  3. Remove the rocker arm assembly for the cylinder selected. Refer to "1.3.2 Removal of Rocker Arm Assembly" .
  4. Remove the spark plug for that cylinder.
  5. Carefully slide a rod, approximately 304.8 mm (12 in.) long, through the spark plug hole until the end of the rod rests on top of the piston.
  6. Using the 3/4 in. square drive hole in the center of the crankshaft pulley and a 3/4 in. drive breaker bar, turn the crankshaft slowly in the direction of engine rotation. See Figure "Barring Engine Over" . Stop when the rod reaches the end of its upward travel.
    Click to see this graphic in a separate window

    Figure 27. Barring Engine Over

    Note: The cylinder selected must be on the compression stroke when performing this check.

  7. Remove the rod and turn the crankshaft, opposite the direction of rotation, between 1/16 and 1/8 of a turn.
  8. Select a dial indicator with 0.0254 mm (0.001 in.) graduations and a spindle movement of at least 25.4 mm (1 in.). Provide an extension for the indicator spindle. The extension must be long enough to contact the piston just before it reaches the end of its upward stroke.
  9. Install a magnetic dial indicator base in a suitable place on the cylinder head and position the dial indicator over the spark plug hole.
  10. Attach a suitable pointer to the gear case cover. The outer end of the pointer should extend over the vibration damper.
  11. Turn the crankshaft slowly in the direction of engine rotation until the indicator hand just stops moving. Continue turning the crankshaft until the indicator hand starts to move again.
  12. Reset the dial to zero.
  13. Turn the crankshaft until the indicator reading is 0.254 mm (0.010 in.).
  14. Scribe a line on the vibration damper in line with the end of the pointer.
  15. Slowly turn the crankshaft opposite the direction of engine rotation until the indicator hand just stops moving. Continue turning the crankshaft until the indicator hand starts to move again.
  16. Reset the dial to zero. Then turn the crankshaft in the same direction until the indicator reading is 0.254 mm (0.010 in.).
  17. Scribe a second line on the vibration damper in line with the end of the pointer.
  18. Scribe a third line half way between the first two lines. This is top dead center for the cylinder selected when the pointer is lined up with it.
  19. Remove the dial indicator and base from the engine.
  20. Install the spark plug that was removed.
  21. Install the rocker arm assemblies. Refer to "1.3.3 Installation of Rocker Arm Shaft Assembly" .
  22. Turn the crankshaft opposite the direction of engine rotation while watching the intake rocker arm cam follower for the cylinder selected. Turn the crankshaft until the cam follower is on the base circle of that intake lobe of the cam.
  23. Install a magnetic dial indicator base on the cylinder head. Install a dial indicator so that the spindle rests directly on the intake cam follower roller for the cylinder selected.

    Note: The spindle should be on the center line of the intake cam follower roller pin in order to get an accurate measurement of cam lift.

  24. Turn the crankshaft slowly, in the direction of engine rotation, until the center mark on the vibration damper lines up with the pointer.
  25. Check the dial indicator reading:
    1. The dial indicator reading for gas engines is 6.47 mm-7.54 mm (0.255 in. -0.297 in.).
  26. If the camshaft lift is incorrect, re-time the engine. Refer to "1.24.2.1 Check Engine Timing" .
  27. Refer to "12.7 Engine Run-in Instructions" for verification of proper camshaft and camshaft bearing installation.
