Timing Belt Suppliers In South Africa

What is a Timing Belt?

In a piston engine, either a timing belt timing chain or set of timing gears is used to synchronize the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft.

This synchronization ensures that the engine’s valves open and close at the correct times in relation to the position of the pistons.

What is the strongest timing belt?

Open-ended timing belts have a high spring rate and excellent tooth shear strength. If you are looking for a linear drive with stiffness and high repeatability, we recommend steel tension members over aramid fiber. The stiffest and strongest “M” belt would be the move-series AT10 or AT15.

What is the maximum life of a timing belt?

Warning Signs of an Aging Timing Belt - Neighborhood Tire Pros

Seven years

Seven years is the maximum life of the timing belt recommended by most manufacturers. For example, the belt should be replaced even if the engine has only 30,000 miles but is seven years of age. More timing belts break due to age than mileage.

Does the timing belt change speed?

A worn timing belt will affect your engine’s starting speed as it is attached to the pulleys that drive the crankshaft. Eventually, the belt can slip on the camshaft drive causing the engine cylinder to open and close at the wrong time.

What are the signs of a timing belt going bad?

A malfunctioning timing belt may cause a variety of symptoms, such as decreased engine performance, strange noises coming from under the hood, and engine misfires.

In most cases, if a timing belt breaks, the engine will no longer run, and the car will not restart without a timing belt replacement service.
