Mini Vernier Adjustbale Duplex Timing Gear Set
$234.95 Mini Vernier Adjustbale Duplex Timing Gear Set
Adjustable cam gear. Even a stock camshaft needs to be timed correctly. If you want to get the maximum benefit from a "hot" cam it is doubly important that the cam timing be correct. This adjustable timing gear set uses set screws that allow for absolute precise timing control. Kit includes billet steel upper and lower gears plus a quality chain. Fitment of an uprated cam drive system is essential when building a performance oriented engine. Timing scatter induced by the standard set up can reach up to 15degrees once the single row chain has stretched, which it does after only a few miles. This scatter not only affects the cam timing, but also the ignition, the distributor being driven by the camshaft. Power loss suffered by this phenomenon is substantial. Replacing the standard single row (simplex) system with a dual row (duplex) system greatly reduces the problem. It is also extremely important to time any cam in to it's required setting to obtain maximum performance, especially with performance cams. The 'dot to dot' method can, because of manufacturing tolerances, be out by as much as 15degrees. Anything above 2degrees out and power suffers-most noticeably in small bore engines. In race engines you probably lose 1 hp for every degree the cam is out, more when over 6degrees!

Building an engine is very much like most things in life- the more attention to detail you give an effort the more likely you will get the results you were looking for. Whether you are installing a new stock or performance camshaft or even simply rebuilding your motor with the stock camshaft getting the valve timing correct is one of the more important things that you can do.

Camshaft selection can be as complicated as you like, but for the ultimate performance, even if that means best gas mileage requires that you consider the entire envelope that the camshaft will work within. Non-technical issues such as intended application (street, race, milage or??), budget, expected RPM range, etc must be considered along with technical things like compression ratio, Cylinder head and valve sizes, exhaust system, carburetion, etc.
