Camshafts and Parts

Camshaft Bearings and Hardware
Camshaft Oiling
The camshafts are kept lubricated by the engine oil. The oil is pressurized by the oil pump and distributed to the camshafts.

Timing Belts and Tensioners

The tolerances between the valves and pistons on some engines are very narrow, and this potentially disastrous dance between parts is all kept in harmony by the timing belt and tensioners. Make sure yours are all in proper working shape so you can continue to hear sweet sounds from your engine for years to come.
Timing Belts
Timing belts are used to keep the valve train in proper sequence with the crankshaft and pistons.
