Gates High Performance Timing Belts are incredibly strong and extremely heat resistant. Constructed of HNBR elastomeric composites,
Gates High Performance Timing Belts are as much as 300% stronger than stock belts and deliver up to three times the heat resistance.
You can count on them to hold up to the rigors of high horsepower, which is extremely important with interference engines.
Superior construction provides up to three times the heat resistance.
Gripping teeth reinforced with aramid and nylon rubber minimize wear.
As much as 300% stronger than the standard aftermarket belt.
Withstand the rigors of high horsepower.
Note: Belt Color May Differ (May Be Black or Blue). Does not affect performance.
Is your engine free-running or interference?
Automobile engines can be classified as either Free-Running or Interference, depending on what occurs if piston/valve synchronization is lost. Interference engines usually sustain damage if synchronization is lost. Damage can occur to valves, pistons, or heads, and in some cases, completely ruin the engine. Most import (with higher compression engines) and most car and light truck diesel engines are interference. To avoid costly engine repairs on interference engines, follow the auto manufacturers' mileage replacement recommendations. At the very least, Gates recommends timing belt replacement at around 60,000 miles.
