Truck Timing Belt Replacement and Routine Truck Service

Truck Timing Belt

Truck Timing belts (Truck Cambelts) & Timing Chains control the Truck 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.

Truck Timing Belt Replacement Intervals

Truck Timing belts and Truck 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.

Truck Valve and Piston

Truck 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.

Truck Engine Bay Fluids

The lubricants, hydraulic fluids and anti-freeze chemicals used within the Truck 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

Truck Timing Belt Kits

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

Quality Timing Belt Replacement Kits usually contain:-

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

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

Truck Timing Belt Fitting

Truck 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.

Truck 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 Truck water pump if it's driven off the same belt, also the Truck camshaft and Truck crankshaft oil seals. If the Truck camshaft oil seal or Truck crankshaft oil seal fail then oil will impregnate the cam belt causing failure.
