levantaválvula o alzaválvula


Explanation:
Aunque el contexto es un poco escaso, creo que se trata de esto.


cam follower: The unit that contacts the end of the valve stem and the camshaft. The follower rides on the
camshaft and when the cam lobes move it upward, it opens the valve. Also called "valve lifter" or "tappet."

¡Suerte!
