I read about so many people making a big deal about getting metal gears with new timing chain sets and it's leading me to believe I have a plastic timing gear like some pathetic Ford (gasp!). Is this true?
In 3 cars including mine we used Rollmasters, all they did in all 3 cars was cause a bunch of false knock. 1 of the cars replaced it back to a stock plastic timing gear and all the false knock went away.GNonice:
Why shouldnt you use a double roller timing chain?
Hope those valve springs are not too heavy with all the flat tappet cam problems...If it is a club cam, I would think they should be okay and the club cam is supposed to have more taper to prevent problems; be sure you break it in properly. A single roller from the parts house is fine, and relatively cheap. They come with a iron cam gear rather than the nylon coating.GNonice:
So just a single from Kirbins would be fine? I'm going through my engine right now, put the heaver valve springs in, and a 200/200 cam.
