COMP CAMS # 740-16 VALVE SPRING RETAINERS. FULL SET OF 16.
For use with 10 degree valve locks.
The above picture is a file photo. Actual appearance may vary.
These are the exact retainers we use on all of our sbc and bbc heads running hyd. flat tappet and hyd. roller cams. The Comp retainers are made in the USA from start to finish. We have found variances in offshore retainers that are totallyunacceptable. These variances were up to .045 from one retainer to the next. The angle of the center hole was usually off by several degrees, and would cause the valve locks to not properly mate up with the retainers. This could easily cause the valve locks to let loose under the right conditions. We now use only USA made retainers, and have noticed near zero variances in the Comp Cams line of retainers. We recommend using our Comp Cams 10 degree Super Valve Locks # 611-16 with these retainers for a perfect fit.
These retainers are a perfect fit for our # Melling 272 single or # Melling 274 dual springs, as well our # Comp 987-16 high performance springs. Most springs with an outer diameter of approx. 1.430" will accept this retainer. Some valve springs may have a slightly larger outer diameter due to the size of the spring wire used to make them. That is not a problem for this retainer. If your springs are in the approximate range of 1.500 give or take, we also offer those retainers in our other listings. Those size springs are usually ran on solid roller setups.
Valve springs with larger diameters require retainers to handle the higher pressures developed by the springs. COMP CamsÂ® Steel Retainers are the perfect solution to this problem. COMPÂ® engineers used 3D CAD with FEA to design retainers with a modern and advanced contoured top profiling for lower stress, increased lift and a reduction in mass. The retainers are CNC-machined to exact tolerances using CAD/CAM software. All COMPÂ® retainers use only high-grade SAE 4140 chromoly steel with no lead, <0.04% sulfur and a black oxide finish to prevent corrosion. COMP CamsÂ® Steel Valve Spring Retainers offer both unmatched looks and superior performance that set the industry standard.
From the asphalt tracks of NASCAR to local dirt tracks and drag strips to your personal garage, COMP Cams has made a promise to all performance enthusiasts to engineer and produce the best camshafts available for your application.
than 35 years, the COMP CamsÂ® mission has never changed: to produce the
highest-performing products possible, provide customers with superior service,
and to lead the industry in technological development. While the COMP
Performance Groupâ„¢ has grown to multiple companies and hundreds of employees,
they still retain the competitive spirit and desire to be the very best that
has positioned COMP CamsÂ® as the absolute leader in valve train components.
We purchase most of our valve train hardware in bulk for our engine program. Therefore, they will come to you in our packaging on most occasions. Below are copies of our invoices from Comp Cams showing our rather large purchases of valve train hardware. We have removed the price and our account number for privacy reasons. This is the best way we can prove to our customers that the valve train products we use and sell are genuine Comp Cams products.
