SVS II Deluxe Valve Refacer

Written by Chuck Downs, Service Manager

The SVS II Deluxe Valve Refacer isrepparttar most accurate Valve Refacer made today.

.0005 accuracy for standard chuck and .0002 accuracy for high-performance chuck. The Industry's Best.

The Kwik-Way CenterLine Chuck is what makesrepparttar 137798 SVS II Valve Refacer a cut above allrepparttar 137799 rest. Other Valve Refacers use Chucks, referred to as "center less". These use rollers to griprepparttar 137800 valve stem whilerepparttar 137801 Kwik-way Chuck uses two sets of independent balls that griprepparttar 137802 stem at two very distinct points. The advantage being, if you have a center less chuck and you're trying to grind an in-service valve, if there is any out-of-round onrepparttar 137803 valve stem, that out-of-round is transferred fromrepparttar 137804 rollers onrepparttar 137805 center less chuck torepparttar 137806 valve face. So your face run out will be no better than your stem run-out.

Withrepparttar 137807 Kwik-way Chuck, since it uses two sets of balls that capturerepparttar 137808 valve inrepparttar 137809 wear area ofrepparttar 137810 stem, will automatically re-centerlinerepparttar 137811 valve. What that means is when we grindrepparttar 137812 valve,repparttar 137813 face will come out true torepparttar 137814 center line ofrepparttar 137815 stem that actually rides inrepparttar 137816 valve guide.

In other words, if there is some wear onrepparttar 137817 stem surfacerepparttar 137818 Kwik-Way Chuck is going to compensate for that wear in such a way thatrepparttar 137819 resulting ground valve face is perfectly centered whenrepparttar 137820 valve is back inrepparttar 137821 engine.

Some valve manufacturers design their valves with a tapered stem. Because ofrepparttar 137822 unique way The Kwik-Way Chuck grabsrepparttar 137823 valve stem, taper has no influence onrepparttar 137824 precision ofrepparttar 137825 positioning ofrepparttar 137826 valve inrepparttar 137827 chuck. Other Valve Refacer Chucks may causerepparttar 137828 valve to tilt inrepparttar 137829 chuck. Without a way to compensate for valve stem taper, you cannot refacerepparttar 137830 valve withrepparttar 137831 same amount of accuracy as with a Kwik-Way machine.

The Kwik-Way Chuck is air activated. You simply push a button that will releaserepparttar 137832 two sets of balls and allow you to insertrepparttar 137833 valve. You will have a range of 4mm to 14.3mm withrepparttar 137834 standard or high perfermance valve chuck.

Another type if chuck used on other machines is a collet chuck. To give yourepparttar 137835 range of 4mm to 14.3mm you would need at least 5 or as many as 9 different collets to cover that range. As you now know, withrepparttar 137836 SVS II, there is no change over required for various stem diameters. And as you change collets there can be problems with repeatability because you can putrepparttar 137837 collet inrepparttar 137838 receiver with dirt or grit betweenrepparttar 137839 receiver andrepparttar 137840 collet. In that case, you will get inaccuracy. Also, if you have a tapered valve,repparttar 137841 collet will not compress torepparttar 137842 same tension at both points so again with a collet chuck and a tapered valve you get inaccuracy.

The same is true with an out-of-round valve. Becauserepparttar 137843 collet wants to compress uniformly aroundrepparttar 137844 circumference ofrepparttar 137845 stem. The bottom line is thatrepparttar 137846 other chucks grabrepparttar 137847 valve stem using a greater amount ofrepparttar 137848 valve surface, which can be a problem if there are any irregularities in that valve.

Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin Comes Into Focus as Parts Train's Auto Body Parts Supercharge Every Ford Vehicle

The Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin isrepparttar world's first high-performance sport-utility truck (SUT). We're looking to take Ford performance to an entirely new market segment withrepparttar 137667 Sport Trac Adrenalin," says Steve Lyons, vice president, Ford Motor Company and president, Ford Division. "Adrenalin is designed to offer a unique combination of performance and functionality.

Adrenalin has combinedrepparttar 137668 best attributes of two breakthrough Ford vehicles - Ford SVT F-150 Lightning and Ford Explorer Sport Trac. It also offers class-leading technologies, including all-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission and Ford's industry-leading AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™. It offers four full-sized doors, four bolstered bucket seats, and a four-foot composite box with 30 percent more cargo capacity thanrepparttar 137669 current Explorer Sport Trac.

"We have a very clear view of what we want to do to retain Ford's leadership in performance vehicles," says Phil Martens group vice president, Product Creation. "This includes looking beyond traditional SVT products for opportunities with unique performance attributes, such as all-wheel-drive." The Sport Trac Adrenalin delivers searing acceleration with its 4.6-liter, 32-valve DOHC V-8 power train. A Roots-type supercharger and water-to-air intercooler boost output to a whopping 390 horsepower and 390 pounds-feet of torque.

It has a six-speed automatic transmission -repparttar 137670 first for any SVT vehicle, which has proven capable of heavy-duty use, contributing torepparttar 137671 projected 6000-pound towing capacities ofrepparttar 137672 Sport Trac Adrenalin. "In addition to providing sure footing on slick surfaces, there's a performance advantage to all-wheel drive," says Jay O'Connell, SVT chief vehicle engineer. "A longstanding problem with performance trucks was their inability to 'hook up' from a standing start without excessive wheel spin. This AWD system puts power down through all four tires, helping Adrenalin launch with impressive authority."
