I'm guessing that an inline 6 cylinder, with the valves in line with the cylinders, would be less likely to bend valves when your favorite lady floored the accelerator for an extended period of time?Most V8s have valves that are at an angle to the cylinder, so if a piston hits a floating valve, it will be hitting it at an angle = bent valve?The old flatheads didn't have that problem... pistons and valves were in different places.Anybody ever hear a flathead floored until the valves floated?Willy

good question but i can't remember. i do recall when i was in service a black major had porsche 911 and she wouldn't pump the gas but always just pinned the pedal to the floor and held it there when it started. i heard someone one time tell her you shouldn't do that as it could ruin the motor and she said nope this is an air cool engine so cannot overheat it.
