Cloyes Timing Parts

Quality and Innovation Since 1921

Cloyes is one of the oldest and the most successful suppliers of high-quality automotive timing drive systems and components. It is hard to believe that this company was founded by a single person. In 1920 Raymond Cloyes started this business in Cleveland, Ohio, by manufacturing replacement timing gears for cars and trucks. At first he carried the parts in a market basket selling them to the local replacement parts jobbers. Pretty soon Cloyes expanded his business and started making gears for OEM, industrial and government applications.

The company has come a long way since that time, developing new technologies, expanding distribution segments and manufacturing facilities. Today Cloyes is the worldwide leader in production of reliable OEM, Aftermarket, and High Performance timing drive systems. It is also a Tier 1 supplier to such brands as General Motors, Nissan, Ford, and Chrysler. In 1970, Cloyes introduced and patented the very first, revolutionary True Roller timing set. Thanks to this groundbreaking product, the company became a legend in the high performance world as well. Cloyes made another breakthrough in 1992 when it introduced its patented Hex-A-Just technology for adjusting cam timing.

I've installed this chain kit in my 2000 Saturn and the part numbers of the gears and chain were OEM numbers. The oilier though seem of a different design then the updated GM oilier. I have about 25,000 miles on the chain since install and have no problems at all. With all the problems GM had with these chains and the cost involved when they let loose, I can only go with the updated OEM chain even though there are cheaper clones on the market. 2003 and up had the redesigned oilier and that is what I believe this kit contains.
