Upgrading your old worn out tappets and have many benefits! A worn out and pitted tappet can cause you to not be able to set the correct valve lash. In turn to cause your timing to be off. A tappet that is pitted can start to apply uneven pressure on your valve. making them rub against the valve guides causing them to wear out faster or not seal properly.
With the new Elephant style tappet. the swivel end is allowed to slide and rotate as the valve travels. The helps with keeping an even pressure on the valve and a smoother operation. This can also lead to a quieter top end.
What is all included:
New Elephant Foot Tappets
New Stainless Steel Rocker Shaft Plugs
All Parts Vapor Honed
All Moving Parts Are Micro Polished
Rockers Machined To Accept New Tappets
Fully Oiled And Reassembled
We will disassemble the entire top cover, before degreasing and clean every part. The parts will then be Vapor Honed before any polishing will start. We then use a vibratory tumbler to start the polishing process. Once this step is done we move onto compound polishing. Making sure to hit every surface that will contact with another
REDUCTION OF HEAT AND FRICTION
When it comes to machined parts, smoother is better. However even the most scrutinized machined parts are still plagued by “peaks & valleys” Turned, ground and even lapped surfaces all create some degree of turbulence and increased heat. Standing to reason that any process that removes those peaks will reduce the heat and friction.
