Valve Locks

Valve locks are placed on each valve stem,in order to keep them in place. These locks come in many different sizes to fit many different size valve stems. They are also categorized by the angle they are set at which is critical when finding one that fits properly. The most popular and standard size for these locks is 7 and 10 degrees. These locks come in two pieces which are pushed together around the valve stem. A slight gap between the locks indicates a correct size lock, while no gap between the locks would indicate that to large of a lock is being used. Machine hardened steel is often used to make valve locks since they are under allot of pressure and play such an important role in the engine. Although the concept and design of this locking mechanism is extremely simple, it can cause a complete failure of the engine if it breaks or comes loose. They usually are purchased in kits which include a lock for each valve in the engine.
