Abstract:
In order to meet requirements for lower fuel consumption, we have developed a technique for significantly decreasing valve train friction for a direct acting OHC engine. Droplets of pure titanium generated by the titanium nitride coating process of the shims improves the surface roughness of the cams, which eliminates the need to polish the cams. In an engine with these shims, the surface roughness of the cams is considerably improved within a few minutes of initial operation by the polishing action of the droplets. Valve train friction is greatly reduced by improving the surface roughness of the cams and shims, which results in better fuel economy.
