German term or phrase: Hebelabspring, franz. Zählweise
context:
"Für die Serienfreigabe der X-(Firmenbezeichnung)Schlepphebel im PSA DV4 TD Zylinderkopf sollen nach (Firmen-)Spezifikation Langzeitverschäumungs-versuche, Ventiltriebsdynamikuntersuchung und Hebelabspring Versuche durchgeführt werden.

Ventil(*) = Meßposition In1 und Ex1 nach franz. Zählweise.

Hebelabspring = lever rebound? bounce?
franz. Zählweise = French counting method? does anyone know what this means in this context?
Also am not sure if PSA DV4 TD can be left as is.
Many thanks in advance for any help.

Explanation:
Hebelabspring = cam follower rebound (see ref)

PS4 DV4 TD can be left as is; it is a part designation

franz Zählweise = ??? French numbering scheme (whatever that is -- must refer to a convetion for numbering the valve positions for identification purposes

Thanks very much, Ken, for your help, and for the web references. You are right, of course, about Hebel actually being levers but being called something else. The company I am working for in this case differentiates between Schlepphebel, which they call finger followers, and Kipphebel, which they refer to as rocker arms. Again, thanks for your input, which is always so helpful!

Explanation:
From your question, it's actually not clear what particular 'Hebel' is being referred to with 'Hebelabspring'. It could also be the Kipphebel (or Schwinghebel), which in English is a 'rocker arm'. Cam followers and rocker arms are functionally levers, but their English names do not incorporate 'lever'.
For an example of both terms used in an actual text, see the reference below.
