nicks or burs that would damage liner packing rings as

d. Inspection. Before any part is discarded or
used again a careful inspection must be performed. The
inspection should include wearing surfaces and general
(1) Inspect for corrosion on portions of block
nearest cylinder liners as evidenced by pitting. Discard
block if area cannot be cleaned, or if area is distorted.
(2) Inspect water passages for erosion
within 1/32 to 3/32 inches from liner counterbore; if not
too deep block may be resurfaced.
(3) Inspect all water passages to make sure

(4) Inspect for eroded water holes which
may prevent proper seating of head gasket or grommet
retainers. Water holes not eroded more than 1/16 inch
from edge of hole can be reamed and bushings inserted.

If counterbore exceeds limits shown in table 2-2 for the
top 0.250 inch depth, the block will have to be machined
for oversize flange liners (e.(4)). The counterbore ledge
must be smooth and perpendicular to the cylinder liner

determine if refinish of counterbore surface is necessary.
