    Icon5a Double Roller and Single Roller Timing Chain??

    I'm replacing the timing chain on my 360 v8....went to the shop and asked for a price on it to figure out my budget and the guy asked me if I wanted a single roller or double roller timing chain?? This may be ignorant on my part, but I really don't know what I want....can you guys help me out? Plus I figure I'm going to look around else where for a set, since the price was $60 for a double roller and $73 for a single roller....but I see 4wdh sells timing chain sets for like $30 (don't know if single or double)....anyway...can someone fill me in a little...thanks...and sorry for the "silly" question.

    :bangnerd:

    The double maintains the timing better if you are a hard user.

    The single will work just as well as a double for normal use, but I have never been normal so get the double and have done with it.

    Go double, it is worth it, they stretch less then the singles. They can be had for almost half that price ($73):

    Bewarned when you replace yours though, nearly all the non billet timing chain sprockets that are on the cam side have flashing (of casting defect ) that NEEDS to be removed for propper oil passage. There is plenty of information on this on the net, so I won't go into it, but just for info a chain saw sharpening file works wonders and it take all about 30 seconds to do.
