Timing Belts & Chains
The timing belt turns the camshaft(s) at exactly half the speed
of the crankshaft while keeping a precise alignment ensuring that the crankshaft
will make two revolutions for every camshaft revolution. Every engine has at

intake and exhaust valves to open and close in time with the pistons that move
up and down in the cylinders. The valves have to open and close at precisely the
right time in relationship to the piston movement so that your engine will run
properly. If the timing is off so is your ride, and if the timing is off for
