The automobile engine is much like
a human being in one particular, its
functional well being is largely de
pendent on a respiratory system. By
this expression, we mean that part of
its mechanism that has to do witn
breathing in of the fuel vapor and the
expelling of the burned gases after
combustion has taken place. The res
piratory function of the engine is con
trolled by the valves. If the valves
which permit the fuel to enter the
combustion chamber do not perform
their work properly, mucn ui iu-
er of the motor will obviously be lost
Again it is just as important, w B
the burned gases out of the way after
combustion, for their continued pres
ence in the combustion chamber will
contaminate the fresh fuel. Grantipg
then, the importance of the valve sys
tem a brief study of the unit, its com
mon failings and how to remedy them
may be intepesting and helpful.
To begin with here are five definite
types of valve gears. The most popu
lar type consists of a single camshaft,
operating pushrods, which directly
control the valves. This is the type
that is used on L-head engines, by far
the commonest type of power plant.
The next tvpe is the valve-in-head,
which means that the valves are lo
cated in the heads of the cylinders,
the operation being achieved by means
of vertical rods and rocker arms.
These rocker arms are merely pivoted
levers, operated from vertical rods,
which extend up from a push rod,
driven by an ordinary camshaft. The
next valve type is known as the T-TT-Vtir.v,
nnprntes on the same
principle as the L-head, but has two
camshafts, one for intake and the
other for exhaust valves. The fourth
type also has valves in the heads of
the cylinders, but the camshaft is
placed on top of the cylinders, Instead
of being in the crankcase. The final
type is the sleeve valve, which are
simply ports in sliding sleeves which
are actuated by eccentric shafts, cor
responding to the camshafts of ordin
ary practice.
Most car owners understand some
thing of the way in which valves are
operated, but we shall describe the
operation briefly. The camshaft is
geared to the crankshaft and as it re
volves, the cams are brought into con
tact with the valve lifter, which is a
cylinder bit of steel, moving up and
down within a guide. As the lifter is
forced upward it pushes the valve
open, against the resistance of a spring.
When it reaches its limit of upward
movement, it sinks down again and
the spring closes the valve. Obviously
the position and size of the cams and
other parts of the valve gearing must
be accurately determined to keep the
valve open for just the proper length
of time. 'Also the valves must open
at exactly the right instant in relation
-to the position of the piston. It will be
evident that wear in certain parts of
this valve system, will cause derange
ment of the entire operation of the
respiriatory system of the engine.
The modern tendency in engine de
sign is to keep the entire valve mech
anism exposed to a perpetual spray oi
oil. In some designs pipes are pro
vided, but in others the valve system
is located inside the crankcase, where
it gets splash lubrication from the
connecting rods. As a result of this
tendency the wear and consequent
noisy operation of the valve system,
which used to be almost universal, has
been largely eliminated. Nevertheless,
the average car owner does not give
his valve system the care or rather

often develop into big failures, for lack
oi a smaii attention in time.
For instance, it is not uncommon
to find an excessive leakage of oil
down the sides of the valves. This is
caused by -rear of the valve stem or
stem guide, usually brought about by
insufficient lubrication. . Something
may have prevented oil from getting to
the mechanism and the result has been
excessive and rapid wear. Or the con
dition may be caused by the fact that
the valve is pushed sideways when
ever it is raised, because of a bent
stem, a worn tappet or stem bottom. It
frequently happens that the stem will
be struck- at one point only, inducing
excessive side thrust, wearing the valve
stem guide. When the guides have
been worn in this way, it is possible to

ream them out and fit valves with
oversize stems. An alternative repair
is to fit bronze bushings in the guides,
if these are not already used. When
ever the valves are taken out for any
reason, they should be examined for
bent stems and for play in their guides.
In inspecting the stems it is best to
use a steel square, as the eye often
fails to detect a slight bend.
Another valve trouble is wear of the
tappets, which causes a slapping in
their guides, a very annoying condi
tion, the existence of which may be
detected by shaking" the tappet with
the fingers, after the spring pressure
has been removed. The methods of
overcoming this slapping are almost
as many as the number of. tappet as
semblies and in some cases a new unit
is necessary.

failures is worn cams. The worn cam
slaps against its follower and worse
still it alters the lift of the valve. This
has the exect of shutting oft part of
the fuel supply of the engine, or of
reducing the time for scavenging so
that all the burned gases cannot es
cape from the combustion chamber.
The only remedy for this condition is
to install a new camshaft.
In making adjustments in the valve
gearing system, the work should al
ways be carried out while the parts
are hot. They run hot when the en
gine is operating and if adjustments
are made when they are cold, the ex
pansion that occurs after the metal ii
heated may spoil the whole adjust
ment. !
Valves cannot do their work prop
erly unless they are seating accurate
ly. This means grinding, when neces
sary. When grinding the valvee and
seats, do not forget to give the springs
a little attention. See that all of
them are straight and that the valve
springs are all of equal length. The
exhaust set will be a little longer,
probably, than the inlet set. because
they exert a greater pressure.
