alternating valve engine
 
I have invented and patented an alternating valve engine that will function just fine using 15 pound valve springs instead of the 150 (or so) pound springs in your motor. calulations indicate the energy savings from stiff to light springs will near double or more the fuel milage in a small or medium sized auto...send me your e-mail address and i'll forward to you attachments as to how it works...thanks jim whitmer...

So, you're saying that just reducing the resistance of the springs will cut fuel consumption in half?

Colour me skeptical :)

please send me your e-mail address and i will forward attachments that contain data so you can decide for yourself...jim whitmer... 405 751 4521 if you want to chit chat....or... j.whitmer@cox.net

It takes more energy to compress the valve springs on a four valve per cylinder engine than it does to push you down the road at 70 MPH... 405 751 4521 or j.whitmer@cox.net

I almost believe this.

150lb x 4 springs squished down 1/2" (i have no idea how far springs go down)
300lbs of power per "inch". Then multiply x engine RPMs. 2k @ highway. valves open one time per rpm but there are 2 sets of valves. So we're back at 600lbs per "inch" idk how much it takes in pounds to move a car down the road.
1 "inch" happens every rotation of the crank.


...i just made up stuff. lmao

I've already made my decision.

That energy used to compress springs, minus friction, is largely recovered when the springs decompress.

to all who have an interest...please send me your e-mail address and i'll forward to you attachments that explains the alternating valve engine...i'm old and near computer dum...(or is it dumb?)...I can't learn how to send an attachment thru this foreum...thanks for your interest....jim 405 751 4521 anytime...

my e-mail address is j.whitmer@cox.net

You really need to be upfront and state your purpose and state EXACTLY what you think you have, not making lame excuses, nobody buys "I'm to old to do attachments".

Hmm...

Do you have a patent number?

MadisonMPG 08-24-2009 07:34 PM

I will post it, but I disagree with it. The spring pushes back just as hard as you pushed it down.
.......here it is

That didn't work.
