Valve Springs: What you should know about them

The valve springs can no longer exert enough pressure to keep the lifters in contact with the camshaft lobes, and an out-of-control situation results. Valves begin bouncing off the valve seats, lifters slap precision cam lobes with devastating impacts, and pistons slam into valves that should be

Under Pressure: The Importance of Getting the Right Amount ...

In the same manner that a lower opening pressure can be used on flat tappet engines operating at a lower RPM limit, you can use a spring that will provide a 260-270 lb. minimum for hydraulic roller applications operating at 4,000 RPM and lower.

Spring Locating Pins | McMaster-Carr

Set the tang in a hole or recess below the work surface to ensure thin material cannot slide underneath the plunger's face. As the face is pushed in, the internal spring applies outward pressure to hold a workpiece in position against stops or rails. Plungers allow easy insertion and removal of parts in a fixture and accommodate slight variations in size from part to part.

Now, on the spring rate. I'm calculating a 556 lb/in spring rate: (300-150) / (1.818-1.548) = 556 lbs/in At first I thought that sounded a little high, but it's definitely in the realm of sanity for a spring of that diameter. Might be OK for a modest solid roller, but definitely too much for a flat tappet.

Too much spring pressure? | Hot Rod Forum

Discussion Starter · #1 · Feb 14, 2011. I was just wondering if there is such a thing as too much spring pressure. I have a hydraulic roller and the cam manufacturer recommends a seat pressure of 134lbs and about 323lbs at lift. I found some used heads I like but the springs installed are rated almost double! 242lbs seat and 460 ish at lift.

The tradeoff comes from higher spring pressure, decreased durability from a street application, and the higher spring pressure can induce extra wear in the roller lifters, especially at idle. A street roller cam is designed with a less aggressive ramp, requiring less spring pressure, putting less strain on the roller lifters at idle when the ...

Spring Training: Understanding Valvespring Pressure

If you have a spring that has 300-pounds of seat pressure, a good rule of thumb is to deduct 10-pounds per square inch, which equates to 30-pounds maximum load at RPM. This brings the seat pressure down to 270 pounds," Jamora explains. ISKY puts their valve springs through many different tests to ensure they will work as designed.

Spring pressure on Hydralic roller - Don Terrill's Speed-Talk

The street ones are almost all the same as far as their capability however, the race ones with bigger roller wheels, short travel plunger, better quality axles and lifter bodies will accept valve spring pressures like solid rollers; 250 on the seat and 700 open is the usual. NOT on the street, however. SO, use whatever best fits YOUR application.

maximum seat and open pressure on hydraulic roller lifters ...

Now for the fun part, regardless of the valve springs pressure, the lifters will fill w/oil (liquid) and, since liquids are non-compressible, the hydraulic principle should take care of it, provided the lifters are in good shape. For HR cams valve spring closed valve pressure, the minimum recommended is 110lbs so, 130lbs is adequate for the cam.

What are the effects of too much valve spring | Ford ...

More spring pressure controls the valve. That's with a roller cam. Now, with a flat tappet cam, it's a totally different game. You must have enough spring to control the lifters but, too much and the lifters will chew away at the cams lobes. That's why you must use lighter springs for initial break-in of a sloid flat tappet cam.

VALVE SPRINGS - Engine Professional

Valve spring open pressure represents the pressure (in psi) that's placed against the spring retainer at maximum valve lift. You need enough pressure to control the lifters as they accelerate up the cam lobe and when decelerating when ramp-ing down past the lobe peak (when the valve changes direction from opening to closing). If the spring

1. Use only the valve springs that will give the correct spring pressure with the valve both on the seat and at maximum lift. 2. The outside diameter of the recommended valve spring may require that the spring pocket of the head be machined to a bigger size. 3.
