Timing chains have the same job as timing belts but are very different when it comes to what it is made out of and how each evolved.
Both timing components work to keep the engine running by synchronizing the camshaft and crankshaft’s movements. Without this precision, timing damage could easily occur in the valves, pistons, and close parts of the engine.
More timing belts were used due to lower cost points and noise made but as the technology for this part of the engine progressed, timing chains progressed with it. As the new decade begins timing chains have begun to make their comeback by being more durable, expected to last the entire life of a vehicle and solving issues like the noise that was previously produced.
Timing chain kits were designed to assist in situations where the previous one had failed or simply a replacement was preferred. Cloyes has a timing chain kit that is not only made of exception quality and engineering but also comes with the parts needed for a quick replacement.
