Overhead Valve’s (OHV) are the series of valves that are placed on the head of cylinder within the engine. This system was an improvement of the old technique used in engine that is flathead engine in which valves were positioned directly in the block that is next to piston. This technology is much different than the OHC technology. In earlier times many engine manufacturers started to use this technology after it was introduced in the market. Since OHC technology was launched the usage of OHV was reduced very much. Many leading car manufacturers used this technology in their vehicle engine. In India, the famous cars that are Ambassador and Padmini were using the engine with OHV technology. The technology of OHV was also introduced in V8 engine back in the year 1949. This technology was famous for its less complex system that was very simple for the people to rectify easily.
