Processing of saddles of valves in a head of cylinders / grinding in of valves

Processing of saddles of valves is required in the event that they have wear tracks and обгорания or if the directing were processed. Thus it is necessary to observe values of an adjustment corner and width of a facet. To replace saddles, using usual means it is impossible, since. They were established with cooling to - 150°С. For saddle processing the special machine tool is required. This work should be carried out in conditions HUNDRED. Values of corners of processing are resulted in Specifications.

External diameter of a saddle of the valve (4) corresponds to external diameter of the valve.

Grinding in of saddles

At correctly spent processing of saddles of valves and new valves grinding in of saddles in a head of cylinders is not required.

Valves should get used only fine-grained paste. The sucker which is put on a plate of the valve is applied to grinding in. During grinding in it is necessary to raise often the valve simultaneously rotating it further. It excludes formation of furrows on a ground in surface.

After grinding in paste is necessary for removing carefully from the valve.


Quality of grinding in can be checked up on appearance and fuel. For this purpose the valve insert freely into the turned head of cylinders and fill in fuel from above in the combustion chamber. After long time (1 hour) fuel should not follow from the directing. Otherwise grinding in is necessary for repeating.
