Instrumentation for Valve-Burning Studies 560034

A NEW technique is described utilizing a dynamic micrometer to observe valve motion during actual operation under simulated highway conditions.
Using this instrumentation, studies were conducted on the effect on valve life due to dynamic sticking resulting from additive concentration, valve motion, and valve flexure. The test data indicate that exhaust-valve burning in passenger-car engines appears to be due principally to valve-face corrosion.
