JESEL CAMSHAFT BELT DRIVE SYSTEMS

SMOOTHER THAN GEARS - MORE RELIABLE THAN CHAINS
Dan Jesel invented the Small Block Chevrolet Camshaft Belt Drive back in 1982 with one goal in mind , to make the most accurate and durable cam timing system available . And in its 40 years of existence , our Camshaft Belt Drives have often been copied , but have never been duplicated . Whether you ’ re running a 24 hour endurance race or a 4 second pass down the drag strip , you can count on Jesel to get you to the finish line first .
Built with the finest materials available , our Camshaft Belt Drives feature several performance and valvetrain 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 hard coated aluminum upper pulley to help isolate crankshaft harmonics to the valvetrain . 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 .
With over 42 applications from OEM blocks to aftermarket raised cam blocks , you can be certain that the Camshaft Belt Drive used to win countless championships will provide you with years of durable race winning service .
