Assembling the Cylinder Head

Step 1

Check the two Cam Covers for their left ‘L’ and right ‘R’ markings to determine which is which:

Step 2

Fit the keyed post of the Right Cam Cover Pipe into this matching hole on top of the Right Cam Cover, as shown.

The Right Cam Cover Pipe is longer of the two Cover Pipes:

Step 3

Secure this Cover Pipe into place from the inside with one (1) PS01 screw:

Step 4

In the same way, fit the keyed post of the Left Cam Cover Pipe into the matching hole on top of the Left Cam Cover, as shown:

Secure this Cover Pipe into place from the inside with one (1) more PS01 screw:

Step 5

Check the two Cam Shafts for their left ‘L’ and right ‘R’ markings to determine which is which:

Step 6

It may help to lay out these parts to the left and right of the Cylinder Head, orienting them as shown:

Firmly press the three inner pins (these are closer to each other) of the Left Cam Shaft into the matching holes at this location on the left side of the Cylinder Head (Upper Part), orienting the Shaft as shown.

Step 7

Likewise, firmly press the three inner pins of the Right Cam Shaft into the matching holes at this location on the right side of the Cylinder Head (Upper Part), again orienting the Shaft as shown:

Step 8

Press the posts of the Left Cam Cover onto the outer pins of the Left Cam Shaft until it is flush with the Cylinder Head, as shown.

If you find this to be a tight fitment, you can either sand some paint from the Shaft pins, or slightly enlarge the holes in the Cover posts:

Step 9

In the same way, press the posts of the Right Cam Cover onto the outer pins of the Right Cam Shaft until it is flush with the Cylinder Head:

Step 10

Press the keyed post of the Oil Filler Cap into the matching hole of the Oil Filler Neck, as shown:

Step 11

Firmly press the tab of the Oil Filler Neck into the matching slot at this location on the front of the Cylinder Head, as shown:

Step 12-13

Firmly press the T-shaped tabs of the Cylinder Head Parts into these two matching slots at the front of the Cylinder Head, as shown.

Fun Fact: On the real engine, these are oil breather tubes that would have had very tiny holes in them:

Thoughts


There was a lot of press-fit parts in this stage. It is interesting that the detailed Cam Shafts will not be seen, but are instead used to hold the Cam Covers in place. Take care while handling this Cylinder Head (Upper Part) assembly as the small Cover Pipes are delicate.
