A cam lobe, is an eccentric. The heel of the lobe, would be the non active, flat part of the lobe. Non active, as it is the non active portion, of the cycle.
Doesn't matter on a roller lifter. Flat tappets must remain with the cam lobe they were broken in on.
A 'cam' is a lobe shape on a rotating shaft in machinery. A 'follower' is a part that contacts the cam and goes back and forth relative to the rotation of the lobe. This is a common way of converting rotation to reciprocal action.
In automotive terms that bump is a "lobe".
That would be the flat tappet cam in that engine.
In the context of an automobile engine the cam follower rides on the oval shaped camshaft lobe and translates the circular motion of the lobe into linear motion to operate intake and exhaust valves.
possibly flat lobe on cam
Check and see if the distributor cap is cracked. Could be as simple as a vacuum leak. Check the spark plugs to see if one looks different from the rest. If so, it could be a bad rocker or flat lobe on the cam. Pull the valve covers and have a look around
No you cannot. It will just eat the lobe off the cam further. You will have to replace the cam and lifters. be sure to change the oil and filter several times after job is finished. It would be wise to replace the timing chain and gears as a set.
Mosy likely you have a camshaft that is going flat. When a piston goes up and down it pushes a rod that sits on the camshaft lobe or the high part of a cam shaft. This in turn pushes the valves. The motor spins turning the crankshaft which in turn spins the camshaft. When you have one or two valves that keep getting loose usually you have a camshaft that is going flat. This is caused by many different things. Poor installation. Not enough cam lube to keep it slipping in the valley. If one component resists even the slightest and stops during rotation this causes a lobe on the cam shaft to go flat.
Point the intake cam lobe down and the timing mark on the cam gear at the 12 o clock position with the piston at TDC.
possible need carb rebuild, or a flat cam lobe . Could be timing or bad timing chain.
Most flat top pistons have notches cut in them to clear the valves. You could cut the notches deep enough to suit your cam or get a cam with less lift.
There is a small cam in the mechanism that the points ride on. It has a narrow lobe and a wide lobe. When setting the points, the fiber block on the points, which ride on that cam, should be stopped on each of those high spots or lobes. Gap should be 18 to 21 thousandths equally on either lobe. If not, you hanve a problem.
If your vehicle is a chevy, it`s probably a flat lobe on the camshaft (probably number 6 cylinder) If when you accellerate the popping comtinues and gets louder replace the cam and timing chain
MPI's usually have electric fuel pumps to put out the pressure needed. so no lobe.
Door sensors are at the door latch. The sensor is actually a mechanical switch. This switch rides on a cam lobe that activates the switch on & off. The switch is very sensitive and if there is any kind of wear in the lobe of the cam can indicate door open even if it is shut. The only way to repair or fix the issue is open the door latch from the door and replace the latch assembly or build up the wear area. I used a kapton tape to build up the wear area and it fix the problem. Do not over build the area.
It is a measure, in thousandths, of how far the cam lobe lifts the valve open, off of the seat.
push rod or tap its. It would be a cam lobe that moves the lifter.
is there glue that can repair a split earlobe
It means the lobe is worn off of the CAM SHAFT. Need to replace cam and lifters.
Fix a flat, you can get it at any dollar general store or Wal-mart.
No, because Fix-a-flat has to rotate around the inner tire and coat everything, or else it all just sinks to the bottom, as it would in a pool.
You do not want to change from a roller camshaft to a hydraulic flat tappet cam! that would be adding friction to you engine(bad plan). you can go from a flat tappet to a roller cam but no one offers a kit to erase technology, or subtract horsepower.
