1. Install the dial indicator as shown. Always put a force on the crankshaft in the same direction before the indicator is read so the crankshaft end clearance (movement) is always removed.
Checking Face Runout Of The Flywheel
2. Set the dial indicator to read “0” (zero).
3. Turn the flywheel and read the indicator every 90 degrees.
4. The difference between the lower and higher measurements taken at all four points must not be more than 0.15 mm (.006 in), which is the maximum permissible face runout (axial eccentricity) of the flywheel.
