Using replaceable cylinder liners can save time and costly machine work.
First, determine the type of liners—wet or dry—that are used in the unit being
rebuilt. Dry liners do not require a water seal and can simply be pulled out (fig. 3-
31) and the new liner pressed into place. Wet liners have grooves cut into them (fig.
3-32) for fitting O-ring seals to prevent water leakage into the crankcase.


When installing the wet type of liners (fig. 3-33), use care to prevent damage to the
O-ring seals
