Lorry Timing Belt Replacement and Routine Lorry Service

Lorry Timing Belt

Lorry Timing belts (Lorry Cambelts) & Timing Chains control the Lorry engine valve cycle sequence to ensure correct fuel combustion timing and compression.

Interference engine design allows pistons and valves to interfere or make contact if the timing sequence is not set correctly or if the timing belt snaps resulting in piston and valve damage requiring an engine rebuild with new pistons and valves.

Lorry Timing Belt Replacement Intervals

Lorry Timing belts and Lorry timing chains should be replaced at the correct service intervals; especially on interference (most diesel) engines as belt wear causing incorrect timing may result in a very expensive repair bill.

Lorry Valve and Piston

Lorry Timing belt replacement involves synchronising valve and piston positions and setting the adjustable tensioning roller to ensure the belt is not overtightened putting additional strain on the camshaft bearings and crankshaft bearings correct adjustment of belt tension.

Lorry Engine Bay Fluids

The lubricants, hydraulic fluids and anti-freeze chemicals used within the Lorry engine bay can degrade the rubber polymer compounds used in timing belt manufacture. As a consequence the belt life can be greatly reduced, especially if exposed to increased operating temperatures

Lorry Timing Belt Kits

The replacement parts needed for a Lorry timing belt service are usually supplied in "Kit" form to ensure

Quality Timing Belt Replacement Kits usually contain:-

  • Lorry Belts
  • Lorry Idlers
  • Lorry Tensioner pulleys
  • Lorry Tensioner Springs
  • Lorry Cam Cover Gaskets

Lorry Manufacturer fitted Timing Belts will be designed for standard vehicle applications. Aftermarket timing belts can alter engine performance characteristics.

Lorry Timing Belt Fitting

Lorry Engines may come in many variations: single overhead cam (OHC), double Overhead Cam (DOHC), overhead valve (OHV) and the engine timing-cam belt can be used to drive other essential components such as the water pump and fuel injection pump on diesel engines.

The belt can run a series of pulleys from three on a simpler OHC Engine to 8 on a performance V6, V8 Engine layout.

Lorry Timing belt fitting is a complex operation that requires a great deal of labour to do properly

It is worth ensuring that other components likely to suffer the same wear and tear as the timing belt and might require a major service or replacement before your next timing belt change are replace at the same time.

Maximise timing belt life and service intervals. Consider replacing the Lorry water pump if it's driven off the same belt, also the Lorry camshaft and Lorry crankshaft oil seals. If the Lorry camshaft oil seal or Lorry crankshaft oil seal fail then oil will impregnate the cam belt causing failure.
