Understanding the Workings of a Timing Belt

Unfortunately, many people do not understand that there exist specific terms of art associated with the mechanics of an engine. For example, many people do not understand the operation of a timing belt.

Technically speaking, a timing belt is designed to synchronize the rotation of the crankshaft in conjunction with the camshaft of camshafts. This is the accepted definition of the functionality of a timing belt.

The ultimate impact of a properly functioning timing belt is to make certain that valves open and close appropriately in conjunction with a cylinder's exhaust and intake strokes. This represents another accepted definition of the ultimate objective of a timing belt.
