Heat rise


Recommended Posts

On almost all heat risers for inline engines, the weight is up when cold, and falls toward the block when hot.


The spring probably goes on in such a direction that as you wind it to hook it on the pin, the coil gets smaller and it pulls the weight to the up position. That still leaves 2 possibilities for the orientation in the slot. It might be obvious and it might not. The spring shouldn't be super tight wound, but it should hold the weight up at room temperature. It probably winds up about 3/4 turn at room temp, but that part is a wild guess. Hopefully someone on here will have the info specific for a 52 Dodge.
