Experimental Investigation Into the Dynamic Engine Timing Chain Behaviour 980840

This new test method facilitates the direct measurement of the real timing chain load under all engine conditions.
The measuring principle is based on a strain gauged chain link in combination with a telemetric transducer system. It guarantees the continuous observation of the link force during the complete chain revolution in order to identify significant dynamic effects, which are responsible for noise, wear and incorrect valve timing.
