Jesel Camshaft Belt Drive Systems

Built with the finest materials available, our Camshaft Belt Drives feature several performance and valve train stability enhancements over traditional timing chains and gear drives. The Gates patented High Torq Drive™ reinforced belt spins dry on a steel crank pulley and a hard coated aluminum upper pulley and helps isolate crankshaft harmonics to the valve train. Teflon® coated high vacuum cam and crank seals are long lasting and insure the extreme amount of vacuum found in today’s race engines stays sealed in the crankcase. Cam timing can be externally adjustable ±10° in minutes to dial in the power curve and cam thrust can be reduced to as little as .001” with our available dual thrust cam adapter assemblies. 

Another advantage to running our Camshaft Belt Drive is the ability to swap out cams directly through the front cover. Cam swaps can be performed quickly without needing to remove the oil pan by simply removing the upper cam pulley and un-bolting cam seal plate saving countless hours during dyno sessions.

When you’re installing new cam bearings in an LS engine block, the first four (from back to front of the engine) are usually no problem. That’s because the block helps keep the cam bearing installation tool centered in the bearing bores. But when it comes to the front cam bearing, there is nothing to keep the installation tool centered in the bore. That means the chances of that bearing going in cockeyed are pretty high.
