The Operation of a Timing Belt

An important component of an internal combustion engine is the timing belt. A timing belt is also known as a cambelt or a timing chain. It has teeth on the inner side.

The timing belt is designed to synchronize the vital rotation of the crankshaft with the camshafts. The proper rotation ensures that an engine's valves open and close properly during each of the engine's cylinder's intake and exhaust strokes. A properly functioning timing belt ensures that the piston does not strike the valves. This is imperative to ensure the appropriate operation of the engine.
