To install: (1) Before installation, coat the valve tips, rocker arm and fulcrum contact areas with Lubriplate® or equivalent. (2) Rotate the engine until the lifter is on the base circle of the cam (valve closed). NOTE: Be sure to turn the engine only in the normal direction of rotation. Backward rotation will cause the timing belt to slip or lose teeth, altering the valve timing and causing potentially serious engine damage. (3) Install the rocker arm and components and tighten the rocker arm bolts to 17–22 ft. lbs. (23–30 Nm). Be sure the lifter is on the base circle of the cam for each rocker arm as it is installed. (4) Install the rocker arm cover. (5) Connect the negative battery cable.
