Question Really Basic Engine Assembly Question

Brain-fade has struck.

On a 5 cylinder diesel engine (617-952):
The rocker arms are divided into two groups – a set for 2 cylinders, and a set for 3 cylinders. I forgot which set goes toward the front of the engine, and which goes toward the rear.

It seems as though they would fit in either location, but that’s not right… Plus I want to make sure that the camshaft is running on the same rocker arms as before.

Thanks for the help

I don't remember which set goes to the front or rear. When I take mine apart, I set everything in order into the inverted valve cover.

I am surprised that they will interchange. If you set them in place, can you tell where they're supposed to go? Also, another hint might be the notches in the shafts that allow you to reach the head bolts with an extension. If you set them in place and look at those notches to see if they align with the head bolts, this might help you to figure it out.

Good luck,
