If you’re looking for even greater durability and timing accuracy, consider converting your chain and sprockets to a gear drive or belt drive arrangement. A gear drive setup has a cam and crank gear with one or two idler gears. The possibility of chain stretch is eliminated, for consistent cam timing, plus you get a characteristic blower-like gear whine. Belt drives offer infinite adjustability for accurate cam timing, plus the belt absorbs crankshaft harmonics and vibration. Offered for both wet and dry installation, belt drives also deliver increased durability while creating less frictional loss.
Although most of our performance cam timing offerings are for OHV applications, there’s no need to feel neglected if you have an OHC or DOHC engine. Here you’ll find CNC machined cam gears for both timing chains and belts with laser-etched timing marks for precise cam timing adjustment. These gears are made from high grade billet aluminum for light weight and durability, and hard anodized to prevent wear. We also have heavy-duty chain tensioners for selected applications that eliminate chain slack even under low oil pressure conditions, and two-piece timing covers that allow easy cylinder head removal.
