Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 13: Valve Train
The valve train is all of the engine parts, inside the cylinder head, that control the opening and closing of the valves. The camshaft, lifters, pushrods, rocker arms, and valve springs and the valves themselves, all make up the valve train in all motors.
In this section we show the proper way to disassemble and organize the entire system. Gives example of rocker shafts on some motors. A great accessory for this is Goodson tools VTO 80 valve train organizer tray, to keep all your parts together in the right order. Also covers the certain tools you need like a Craftsman pick set, and a lifter extractor tool.
Great shots of our marine engine and the sludge inside it before it went out to the machine shop!
