2. Scratch out a deposit and traces of material of old laying from the interfaced surfaces of collectors and heads of cylinders. If leak of the fulfilled gases took place, estimate not planeness of the interfaced surfaces of collectors (use the steel ruler established on an edge and the probe of lezviyny type). Compare results of measurements to requirements of Specifications, in case of need give collectors to a pro-point.
