I BELIEVE the origins of the rotators , exhaust only, were to help fight deposit build-up on the seats/valve seat interface.The machine shops are'nt giving me the straight scoop on my current spring tension/height set-up. i currently have. i've been to two and both are telling me different things. maybe thier spring height gauges are different?
anyhow thanks for the answer. How come only on the exhaust?

I was told when I had my heads ported that removing them actually lowers the spring temperatures, I am unsure as to how, there may well be some aditional heat generated by the additional motion of the rotation, but, the racing shop with decades of experience, I ain't gonna argue with Denny or Saum.
They shot me straight on everything else, showed me many things in detail, measured things with me there to show me, and I could not be more pleased with the work I had done, or the education I recieved.
Spring height measuring tools should read the same, within a small ammount of error for calibration. They may be looking at it, expalining it from 2 different angles/viewpoints, and you may be missing something, or one (or both) could be full of crap, not much way to tell.
Makes perfect sense, thx. Steel.The only things that cool the valve springs is oil and heat transfer from the spring into the head. The spring rotators can act like insulators lessening the heat transfer. With the spring sitting in the spring pocket, the oil can collect around the bottom of the spring and as it flows, also carries away heat. The rotators don't let this happen either.
To maintain the proper installaed height, the rotators either need to be replaced with a thick shim or taller springs installed. If all your springs are the same height and you remove the rotators, you'll need to replace them with something.
1) many springs won't fit them (meaning dual, etc)I didnt ask about why they where removed, just letting you know that his where.
