Richard, I thought I would bump this to the top again to see if someone will get you answers to your questions and see if you have an update.

The bearing question is fairly easy.  They can be rolled in.

The head is a different issue.  I skimmed my Series 60 maintenance manual and removing the head is a huge job.  The cam is in the head and you have to pull the drive gear and that involves some pretty detailed assembly work.

For sure, you will need a manual before you think about doing the work.

Richard go to www.dieselenginetools.com if that doesn't work just search for Monaco tools and you will see the tools you need for the 60 series it gets pricey.

good luck

I have a CD copy of the manual in the mail. So I'll take a look before I leap.

Unless the cylinders liners are breached or one is low, I see no need to touch them with just 100k on the engine.

Thanks for the help so far.

Looks like the real pricey tool is the cutter that is needed if the liner needs to be shimmed. I have read other posts where folks paid someone to do that for them .
