Product information

A standard timing chain set, suitable for Rover V8 engines using a Thor timing cover / injection system. Using a standard timing chain set with the Thor injection system is essential to ensure the camshaft position sensor receives the correct signal.

RPi Advice

  • Compatible with Thor front covers / injection systems. The Thor EFI system is easily identified by its unique "bunch of bananas" intake manifold.
  • Timing is set with the square marking on the bottom sprocket pointing upwards, and the square mark on the top sprocket pointing down towards it .
  • 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
  • Need gaskets to do the job? These are also available from our website, please see the gaskets and seals section
