Cloyes: Timing Drive Systems: A Review of Timing Chain Systems, Components, and Technologies

The transition of cam drives over the many years of vehicle production has left automotive technicians with the need to learn proper ways to repair complete timing drive systems. As most automotive professional technicians know, a vehicle’s timing chain synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft(s) ensuring proper timing and allows the engine’s valves to open and close during each cylinder’s firing. Timing chain systems are not scheduled maintenance items so repairing before catastrophic failure is key. Therefore, it is important to be able to recognize the symptoms.

On July 13, Cloyes will present “Timing Drive Systems: An In-Depth Review of Chain Systems, Components, and Technologies.” During the webinar, the Cloyes staff will discuss the technologies involved in each part type that is included in a timing drive system along with the different drive systems commonly used.
