ROLLMASTER Gold Vernier timing chain set - DUAL ROW LS1/LS6
Vernier timing sets are an upgrade on the premium gold timing sets. Because the cam sprocket is produced in two parts it allows the outer sprocket section to move separately and independently to the inner hub by way of elongated slots, allowing infinite adjustment to cam timing just by positioning the camshaft to the required degrees then locking the socket head screws around the perimeter which clamps the entire unit together as one solid cam sprocket. Vernier sprockets tend to be a little heavier than the standard red sets as more material is used to aid in the threaded section needed for the inner hub. All vernier sets use regular crank sprockets with single crank keyway only, but all have nitrided sprocket teeth on both cam and crank. Torrington one-piece thrust bearings are used exclusively on all vernier sets where applicable, otherwise brass thrust washers are fitted. Iwis chain is used exclusively on all vernier sets. Installation is a breeze with vernier sets as the entire set can be installed in just the same manner as any other timing set. By leaving the locking screws on the cam wheel loose you can move the camshaft independently to the crankshaft and timing set without moving anything else. You just dial in your camshaft using the vernier scale and then tighten it all up.
