About Valve Grinder

Engines are essentially little metal boxes in which one keeps spare explosions, so it is not exactly a surprise that they need regular cleaning and maintenance. Keeping the poppet valves and their valve seats properly surfaced is a messy, difficult job that requires an eye for detail and a familiarity with automotive engineering; it also requires the right tools for the job, and a valve grinder is what is called for. These grinding stones produce the best possible resurfacing effect and grind so exactly that achieving the ideal 45-degree mating angle is relatively easy even for amateur mechanics. Any four-stroke internal combustion engine benefits significantly from maintenance with a Sioux valve grinder. Well-maintained and resurfaced valves improve fuel efficiency and horsepower, making your car more economical. Lapping compound and the lapping tools used to apply it can perform the job adequately, but a valve grinder is essential to achieve any kind of professional effect.
