Today we will be installing one of the most critical components of any engine. The timing chain and gear set. This set happens to be a very high quality Made in U.S.A. Cloyes timing set. This set is a double roller and ready to go. I like to write on the gears with a silver paint pen to date and brand the set. I also used my paint pen to make the timing dots or marks more visible. Make sure you take your time in this step and ensure that your cam is at TDC (top dead center) with the key-way pointing at the 12 o’clock position and the camshaft’s dowel key-way pointed in the 6 o’clock position. You cannot be a tooth off on this so get it right. Use assembly lube on the gears and chain.
