Are these cars known for having Valve float problems, and if so would it be a big power robber? Please specify what rpm ranges you are talking about.

Thanks!

Pretty tough to do on our valve train since the roller part of the rocker rides on the cam lobe. The only way I could see it happening is if the valve stem started making its way down in to the head. Its really a tough read on the OHC..Much easier to read evidence of valve floating on a push rod engine, just by looking at the lifter roller path on the cam lobs...DA Snake boy!!
