Re: Sodium filled valves

Does anyone know why or what the advantage of sodium
> filled valves is?

My read on it relates to heat transfer on the valve. I believe that
sodium filled valves transfer heat from top of valve throught stem and
subsequently valve guides much more efficiently.  Eliminates burned
valves allows for higher rpm and less time needed on the seats to
dissipate heat.
