The engine is tore down... and I have a pretty cheap timing chain in there.... any recommendations on what I should upgrade too?
Thanks!

I use a Cloyes true double roller and no problems.

You NEED a belt drive like the nascar boys have. LOL just kidding.
I like the look and quality feel of a Rollmaster billet steel setup with the torrington needle thrust bearing setup. (Big$$ with the bearings)
Cant say that it lasts longer or makes more HP though.
Whatever it is just make sure its a TRUE double roller and check your thrust plate or just replace it for drill if it looks worn.
Good luck.

Rollmaster has the best chain and excellant quality billet gears--they look like a work of art.

If you get any set that has billet (hardened) gears, be sure that it includes a bushing or that you order a hardened cam retainer. The stock retainer will quickly wear down if mis-matched.

That Crane looks exactly like my Rollmaster, and seeing how Crane doesn't make their own timing sets...
