The lash cap should be secure upon installation without having to be forced during the assembly. For the lash disk, the component should sit flat against the valve tip with good diameter and OD surface finish control to insure proper fit inside the retaining component. The result is a superior valve-stem-to-keeper-to-retainer assembly. When the fit is correct, there is no relative motion in the assembly. This results in less wear and an extended service life of the components.

Lash cap attributes:

• ID control of 0.0004″ (0.010mm) ‘ Tighter control is available upon request or if required.
• Surface finish of Ra0.10um ‘ Tighter control is available upon request or if required
• DLC coated surfaces provided if required
• Crowned (domed) top surface available to insure center contact with actuating component
• Aerospace, through-hardened, medium-carbon steel for extended use and wear resistance
