Early Variable Valve Timing

10388654_10152253276182540_1234556780668506935_n Prehistoric valve timing! Three gears centered between the cam and crank gears, with an idler in the middle. A bar moved the idler in either direction to advance or retard the timing—activated under full power or not. A cable operated a small piston nudged by oil pressure, moving the bar and idler gear. The driver pushed the cable one way to advance, or the other to retard timing. Invented by Ollie Norris while at Offenhauser in the mid-1960s.

This summer, however, the gates to the yard will open up for one last time as the entire collection heads to auction. Read more
