Rocker Arms Setup
When the valve is closed tip contact is slightly behind the centerline of the valve.
At highest unit loading (approx. 1/2 lift) tip contact ideally is on the centerline of the valve. The valve train is overcoming spring pressure and, more importantly, rapidly accelerating its mass. To minimize deflection, side loading and frictional loss, we want the valve train geometry in its strongest and straightest configuration at this point.
When the valve is fully open, tip contact is slightly behind the centerline of the valve. The valve train in this position (at high RPM) feels the least amount of unit loading as float approaches...everything gets momentarily weightless.
