Successful Valve Train Rebuilding 660746

This paper shows that a mechanic must first determine what caused the valve failure in order to take proper steps to prevent a recurrence. Emphasis is then placed on the necessity of precision workmanship and methods of achieving it.
While dealing in depth with the proper inspection and installation of valves, guides, and seats, it is pointed out that the condition of the various parts of the entire valve train is equally important to long valve life. Everything from the timing gears to the cylinder head, and their influence on valve life, is discussed.
