As the world’s leading timing drive component manufacturer, with over 80 years of cam drive experience, Cloyes knows the importance of accurate valve timing. And nowhere is valve timing more important than on the race track, where being off even a few degrees can mean the difference between winning and losing. Cloyes first applied their cam drive expertise to high-performance engines when they printed their first high-performance catalog in 1966 and released the industry’s first “matched” performance timing gear sets. In the years since, Cloyes was first to offer a 3 keyway adjustable timing feature; a unique, patented, multi-keyway design that avoids installation errors; reduced center distance sets for align bored engines; a patented True Roller Timing Chain set; and an infinitely and easily adjustable Hex-a-Just timing system.
Cloyes has something for every level of high-performance and every budget, from low cost Heavy Duty Speed Sets to the Hex-a-Just, the industry standard in adjustable valve timing. The landmark True Roller timing chain delivers superior strength with full roller action. It features side plates that are cut and shaved from high-strength steel and heat treated for fatigue resistance, and rollers that are “cold rolled” and hardened to exacting standards, increasing load and RPM capabilities. All premium timing sets are hand-matched by trained technicians to ensure center distance and runout, and sets are available for applications where center distance has been reduced due to align honing or boring.
Being able to adjust valve timing gives you the ability to customize the torque and power curve to optimize your engine output according to need, with advanced timing delivering more torque at low RPM and retarded timing delivering more torque at high RPM. Cloyes has numerous solutions to enable valve timing adjustment including 3 or 9 keyway crank sprockets and Quick Adjust and Hex-a-Just cam sprockets. The Quick Button Two-Piece cast aluminum timing cover is the perfect accompaniment to the Hex-a-Just, with an easy to remove access plate that allows adjustment without the need to remove the entire cover.
The Cloyes name has been synonymous with the highest quality performance timing drives for over 40 years, and the company is committed to upholding that hard earned reputation and meeting the needs of racers and high-performance enthusiasts.
Cloyes® made its name as a successful manufacturer of high-quality OEM, Aftermarket, and High Performance automotive timing drive systems and components. The company also invented and patented the revolutionary True Roller timing set and Hex-A-Just adjustable cam timing technology. Quality is of the highest priority for the company. For this reason each Cloyes product goes through a number of advanced testing procedures and inspections before it reaches the customer.
