Cold IDLE speed
After knowing and talking to atleast 3 people whose SOHC engines got damaged under 100K, I discovered that all of these damages happened at cold start or startup after a while. Now, when I have rebuilt my engine and car is dong good, I noticed that these engines go really high speed during cold start (3000 RPM at times) and that could be the reason for breaking the valve seat.
CAN ANYONE SUGGEST if IDLING SPEED at Startup can be reduced.????
This might reduce the chances of damage to valves/head/engine.
