New 2019 Timing Chain Kit catalogue out now.
Being the market leader doesn’t just mean having the largest range, OE quality, great availability and comprehensive cataloguing. All of these aspects are very important but in addition; you have to provide the best service and aftercare.
FAI’s timing chain kit (TCK) program is the best in the aftermarket with over 430 part numbers, covering a greater percentage of the European and Asian car parc than the competition. The ethos of the TCK program was to bring a complete solution to the aftermarket, so FAI takes great care to include ALL the parts needed to complete a TCK installation right down to the last stretch bolt.
TCK’s are a relatively new product to the aftermarket as most popular engine manufacturers have used timing belts to synchronise their engine for the past 40 years. For that reason many mechanics/technicians (with the exception of BMW & Mercedes) have had little or no experience of working on engines using timing chains. It has become evident that this is a problem and so to help our customers and their customers, we have produced a Fault Finding Chart (600mmx840mm) for TCK’s which demonstrates the most common faults that can arise when a TCK or a component of the TCK is failing in a simple question and answer format.
This simple and clear chart is ideal to be placed on the wall of a motor factor, engine reconditioner or a garage counter/customer area. This enables their customers to improve their understanding of TCK faults by knowing what to look or listen for and what action is required to cure them. The diagnostic poster in not just educational, but will also generate sales for the motor factor/reconditioner and parts/labour work for the garage.
We also provide oil warning labels on every single one of our TCK’s, as using the correct oil is absolutely vital.
The table shown below illustrates the number of vehicle types now covered by our TCK range. Our brand coverage is second to none, in particular the Far Eastern and European manufacturers.
