October 31, 2022 – Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems supplier in the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, is launching an all-new line of timing chain kits for the North America automotive aftermarket. As part of Dayco’s mission to simplify the repair process and ensure technicians have all the parts needed for a thorough and complete repair, Dayco has developed a precision engineered, premium line of more than 100+ timing chain kit part numbers.
Dayco’s premium timing chain kits make it easy for technicians to perform a professional timing chain repair using our precision engineered, high-quality parts. The kits feature direct OE replacement components, including top grade chains that eliminate stretch, precision machined sprockets, and high-grade plastic guides for excellent wear resistance.
“This was an easy decision for us as the timing chain market has continued to expand over the last few years and the front-end drive system is a core competency for our team,” said Jay Buckley, Director of Product Management, Dayco North America. “More than 90% of new vehicles coming off the line in the USA are timing chain driven. Chains are durable and work best with the smaller, more complex engines automakers are launching, so this product line was a natural fit for us.”
Launching with more than 100 part numbers, Dayco timing chain kits cover all high-volume engine applications and include direct OE replacement components for quiet, maintenance-free performance. The kits will be backed by a two year or 60,000-mile parts and labor warranty – one of the best warranties offered in the industry.
A series of comprehensive training materials are also being introduced as part of the product’s launch. Five step-by-step instructional videos were produced to help certified technicians walk through the repair process on a number of popular vehicle engines. The videos can be found within the training section of the company’s Tech Hub. Technicians can also view more information here or utilize Dayco’s robust parts search feature to find the exact kit needed for their next repair, searching by Y/M/M, VIN or license plate number.
