FAI Automotive streamlines Timing Chain Kit contents

Date: Wednesday 01 March 2023

Premium-quality parts supplier, FAI Automotive, has announced that it is simplifying its Timing Chain Kit (TCK) contents to create just three derivatives per application, making it easier for customers looking for a TCK solution.

This move will allow for quick identification, as well as reducing stock holding and shipping costs. As a result, FAI will also streamline how it creates part numbers.

For example, customers can now follow the handy system to identify the solution they need, with TCKxxxWO referring to a basic kit without gears or gaskets, TCKxxx referencing a kit with gears & gaskets (excluding VVT hub(s)) and, TCKxxxVVT referring to a complete kit with gears, gaskets, VVT hubs and stretch bolts (where applicable).

As with all FAI products, the TCK range is subjected to numerous testing phases to ensure the best production standards. A combination of endurance, durability, destruction and thermal shock testing, paired with stringent inspection, ensures a long and reliable service lifespan.

FAI TCKs include the latest technologies adopted by OE vehicle manufacturers, including newly developed ‘High Torque’ chains for many modern applications.

Flex in FAI chains are confined to a maximum tolerance of 0.3 percent, maximising the chain lifespan and exceeding the aftermarket average of 1 – 3 percent.

The Aftermarket specialist also provides a QR code on each box that, when scanned, gives access to online fitment details relating to a specific FAI part number.

The market leading FAI TCK range now offers over 500 part numbers, covering more than 16,000 modern and popular cars and LCVs.

The ethos of the FAI TCK programme is to bring a complete solution to the aftermarket, so FAI ensures that all the parts needed to complete a timing installation are included, right down to the last stretch bolt.
