As an alternative to timing belts, Continental has added another product to its portfolio of drive components and, as of now, timing chains are a permanent fixture in the product range.
Continental has long been known as a specialist in modern drive belts and it was therefore a logical further step for the company to react to current market developments and include timing chains in its range.
Here, the keyword is “full-range provider,” as Dennis Roth, project manager responsible for the new timing chain range, explains: “We are constantly evolving and now offer customers a full range of drive components. We are no longer just a belt supplier. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can also provide advice and support.”
In its entry-level range, Continental offers 43 different timing chain kits. The range therefore covers the main vehicle applications and all problematic engines susceptible to frequent failure of the timing chain or timing chain components. The corresponding kits provide auto repair shops with a practical, complete solution as all the parts needed for repairs are included.
There are no compromises on quality, with the unique five-year guarantee also applying to the timing chains and timing chain kits. To make installation easy, installation videos in the familiar “Watch and Work” series will be released especially for the market launch. The videos will shortly be available online for free and can be viewed at any time.
