A standard timing chain set, suitable for Rover V8 engines using a V-belt or Intermediate Serpentine front timing cover and compatible with all the long nose camshafts we supply. In other words, if your Rover V8 uses a distributor for ignition, this timing chain set will be compatible
Compatible with all Rover V8 engines which use a distributor for ignition.
Timing is set with the square marking on the bottom sprocket pointing upwards, and the timing mark on the top sprocket pointing downwards towards it. Always set timing with cylinder 1 at TDC.
Always turn the engine by hand to check the timing is correct - after two full revolutions of the crankshaft the timing marks should line up again as above.
Always inspect your camshaft condition - replacing a worn timing chain won't do much to help your engine if the camshaft itself is worn
