rocker arms


Your vehicle's rocker arm is a cleverly designed piece of equipment which effectively turns the radial movement from the camshaft into a linear movement so the valves will open. Here we will explain more.

Rocker arm in a vehicle

The rocker arm in a vehicle tends to be made from steel because it needs to deal with lots of movement. The rocker arm is designed to change the radial movement from the overhead camshaft into the linear or up-and-down movement needed to open and close the engine valves. Without this rocker arm functioning effectively means you will not generate power to drive anywhere. Also, they are susceptible to wear and tear and when a problem occurs you may hear a tapping noise from the top of the engine block but this could be down to not having enough oil to lubricate the engine. Should you hear this noise then you'll need to act quickly because it's an early warning sign that a serious problem is developing.

How the rocker arm fits in with the valve train

It may also help to appreciate how the rocker arm fits in with the valve train which uses the power from the valves to make your vehicle go. The valve train consists of the valves, the rocker arm, as well as the hydraulic tappets or lifters, the camshaft and push rods. This valve train then regulates how much fuel is taken in, compressed and then ignited in the valve before being expelled by the closing and opening of the valves. This entire movement is synchronised by a chain or belt connected to the crankshaft. Over time, the consistency of this valve train can slip as various components begin to wear away. You will know there's a problem because the valve openings will be mis-timed and will affect your vehicle's performance and could cause serious engine damage.

Rocker arms have a 'ratio'

There's also a way to boost the power in a vehicle because rocker arms have what is known as a 'ratio', that's the measure of the rocker arm's leverage and this determines how powerful the force can be transferred to the valve stem. The rocker arm is driven directly by the camshaft and it relies on bearings in some designs or has metal sliding on metal in others. Also, some rocker arms can be made from high strength alloys to help boost the revs generated by high-performance engines but these are usually found in high-end production vehicles. For those who are modifying their car to develop more power, they could replace the rocker arm for one with a higher lift that will boost the horsepower as a result. If you suspect there might be a problem with the rocker arm then it will be a good idea to take your vehicle to a professional to have the issue diagnosed and for the correct repair to be carried out so that your vehicle can be driven without any damage being caused.

Searching for rocker arms

If you are searching for rocker arms, then it's important that you source a quality replacement from a reputable supplier and that it complies with your vehicle manufacturer's criteria and the MorePartz site can help.
