Over the cams of the camshaft in the cylindrical guide ways, drilled in the block, there are placed tappet rods. They are inverted cylindrical cup shaped. Tappet head is set against the tappet rod. Tappet rods are removed and installed directly through the tappet box, which is closed with a pressed lid on the side of the block, side of the oil filter. When there is a defective gasket, cover of the tappet box is considered to be another source of oil leakage. Tappet rod consists of several components. Tappet head and rod are made of steel. The main defects are bent rods, wear of the spherical surface of the ends and the weakening of the fit on the rod.

Tappet rod must be without scorings or carburized case pitting on the work areas of the ends. Rod bending is checked with the help of a prism. If the rod slap exceeds 0.51 mm, it is necessary to adjust it. Spherical surface wear is checked with a probe. For the normal passage of grease through the cavities of the rod to the bearings of the rocker arms, ends of tappet rod have specially drilled oil feeds.
