Maybe you’ve experienced the consequences of impact stress on your application. As you know, the force of the valve striking the seat as it opens and closes can be harmful to parts ill-prepared or ill-designed for that kind of stress. If you’re experiencing this, you may want to consider the angle of your valve seat. Consider LEJ surface treatments, cast alloys, and hard-faced wear solutions. A larger valve seat angle could improve fuel and airflow. Reducing the angle could minimize valve wear. Let us know if you’re in need of solutions, and we can get the issue resolved.
