Competition Cams 648-16 Machined Steel Race Locks, 7 degree Lock Angle for 11/32" Valve Stem Diameter

Competition Cams 648-16 Machined Steel Race Locks, 7

These single groove Machined Steel Street Locks with 7 degree lock angle and 11/32 inch valve stem size are perfect replacement locks for street applications. It is critically important to make sure valve locks match the valve size. There should always be a small gap between the two halves of the lock when they are properly positioned on the valve stem. If the two halves fit together without a gap, they are too large. If the locks fit tight to the stem and leave a gap between the middle of the lock and the O.D. of the stem, the locks are too small. Most people believe that the tang inside a valve lock holds the retainer and valve spring in place while the engine is running. This is not the case. The cross-section of material in the tang is not strong enough to withstand open spring loads of 1000 pounds. or more. The sole purpose of the tang is to temporarily locate the lock, retainer and spring relative to the valve until the taper of the retainer can nest around the outside surface of the lock. This creates a “collet” effect that binds the two together. The more spring force exerted on the retainer (as the valve opens), the more force applied by the “collet” effect to keep the retainer and lock in place.

Manley 13094-16 7 Degree Valve Lock

Manley 13094-16 7 Degree Valve

The groove in a valve stem, seemingly unimportant, in reality is vital to the success of a valve's performance. Imperfectly formed grooves, inferior or mismatched locks, and improper retainers can lead to catastrophic failure. The so called "conventional" or square groove design has enjoyed enormous success. But the success of a "conventional" groove is dependent upon precise machining. First, the surface finish of the groove must be outstanding to guarantee against failure due to residual machining marks. Next, the groove must have a precise .013" radius in the upper corner. Too small a radius leaves the groove subject to the dangers of a sharp fillet. Too large a radius leaves open the possibility of the groove being abraded in this area by the upper inside edge of the tang of the lock. Also, an oversized radius leaves a reduced horizontal shelf in the groove which is, or should be, the only contact point with the tang of the lock. Contact by the lock in the root of the groove is a disaster waiting to happen. Perfectly formed "conventional" grooves with proper locks and retainers will deliver good service. However, there are sub-standard components on the market that can conspire to destroy a correctly machined groove. The essence of the Bead Loc groove is its simplicity and fo...
