TIMING BELT

The importance of an engine timing belt

What is the purpose of a timing belt or cambelt?

The purpose of a timing belt is to ensure that the moving components of an engine revolve in perfect co-ordination.

The belt revolves at 1000s of revolutions per minute, withstanding extreme mechanical and thermal stresses, so replacing the belts and tensioners at the scheduled intervals is essential maintenance.
