SCHAEFFLER UK has revealed an exclusive partnership with oil and additive supplier Liqui Moly, which will see additives offered with every INA timing chain kit.
The additive is the work of collaboration between engineers from both companies, and the result not only increases the engine’s efficiency, but also prolongs the life of the timing chain.
Schaeffler has provided some advice to technicians installing INA timing chains.
During the installation of an INA timing chain kit, the additive – christened ‘Chain Protect’ – should be applied to the timing chain and associated components to help create a robust layer on all ‘point of contact’ surfaces, resulting in smoother chain function and reduced friction.
The crucial element of any timing chain replacement is the ‘breaking-in’ phase, when the new chain beds itself in to the old engine system. According to Schaeffler, Chain Protect can help ease wear during this phase by up to 20%.
In addition to Chain Protect, INA Timing Chain kits include all of the components required for a professional system replacement; timing chains, chain sprockets, hydraulic and mechanical chain tensioners, as well as tensioning and guide rails, the appropriate gaskets and all mounting parts.
Technicians looking to learn more about INA Timing Chain kits can visit the Repxpert portal, or visit the Repxpert Academy in Hereford on 21st February, when the facility plays host to an INA and FAG training course.
