What's valve float feel like? Wouldn't it occur in every gear or just certain ones. What does it feel like when happens.
If you can rev the engine high enough to get the valves to float, there isnt any backfiring, you could though have the piston make contact with the valves. Should you have enough clearance bewteen the piston and valves, your engine bascially just stops making power, the sound of the engine does change but to put it into words is hard.............Will there be any back firing or anything?
Would it show up in 4th Bo?Lower gears will have a smaller effect on valve float since the engine revs faster and the amount of time valvefloat has to show up. The power will flatten out when valve float occurs since the cylinder isnt sealed up to produce power.
Are you sure it is for .3 seconds.................lol..............What does it feel like? What I feel is like the ignition or gas cut out for .3 seconds then it's going fine again. Is that it or would I keep feeling it if I stayed in the throttle?
If you are referring to the engines max rpm rev limiter, Yes it cant happen. If it is the top speed rev limiter, this is what you may be finding.......this is supposed to slow the engines power down in 5th, I deleted mine so I could run a 12-48 gear ratio with 19.5 tires........but if the rev limiter was set correctly valve float couldnt happen right?
