Timing Chain Brand

Post  plowboy34 on October 6th 2014, 2:11 pm

This is not a race engine, it is in a truck and I am looking more for longevity than anything. I built this engine for the guy and it has about 60,000 miles on it and I can't believe how much play this set has in it. It was just a parts house brand but damn, 60,000 and wore out. I just figured I would ask and see if there is a good longevity brand.

Thanks

how many stock 460's have you taking apart with around 60,000 mi? All those oem chains still good at the mileage?

DanH actually I have taken several apart, worked for Ford back in the 80's and early 90' s....the OEM stuff was definitely better than this set is. I was just wanting to put a good set this time so figured I would ask you experts. I have never been steered wrong here.
Thanks guys....steel double roller is on it's way

^This. Other chains stretch.

Although sbf, my buddy who has won 2 historic road race European championships with his previous Falcon Sprint (later sold back to States) went through practically all available chains and IWIS was the one which did not stretch in that abuse.

Studied it extensively. As much as it seems America could take credit for the industrial success of Germany and Japan both had the discipline for extreme quality control long before we gave them the financial capability to build their industries into world market domination. Meanwhile we keep buying cheaper and cheaper shit from China.

I'm a bit of a history buff. In 60 years they'll be talking about the crash of the American Economy that led to destruction of all the European economies. Nazi Germany started out of Tyranny. No one can deny that our 3 part government system is no longer. Constitutional has become what we do after a big breakfast. No
