valve train life

1 post in this topic

i have heard in the past, that when you stored a 4-stroke, you should do so with the piston at TDC. reason being that the valve springs are not compressed, therefore they will hold up better over the long run as far as seat pressure and valve train life( they wont sack out) any ideas? i'm new the four stroke thing and was curious as to what you guys think. i think i heard old timers refer to this as an old BSA trick, but not sure.
