I just like to know if the Nason timing chain kit is any good ?
I have just bought one and it looks cheap.

Can't say I have used one, however I have purchased a kit and never put it in...no time and the old one is still good. Doesn't look cheap to me, looks similar to Ford...although I did purchase it 5 years ago so things may have changed since.

I would like to hear from people who have fitted this brand. I know that Crow cams are doing a vernier adjustable cam gear, chain and billet crank sprocket in one kit but no guides. I already have the rollmaster adjustable vernier cam gear in my engine right now but i am going to pull the engine down and turbo it soon. I am all about quality and doing the job right the first go.
The reason why i'm asking is that in the past i have read people have broken these guides but i don't know if it's due to poor quality or bad installation. I would also like to know is the chain a true roller chain.

I fitted a Nason timing chain kit in my EA about 2 years ago and haven't had any problems so far. The long guide can snap if you accidently hit it when reinstalling the cyl head. And, unfortunately for us, there aren't many companies making these kits.

I fitted one about 4 years ago when i rebuilt the engine in my EF. Used it with a Rollmaster vernier gear and a Wade 977b110 cam. Never had any issues with it and never had timing chain rattle. If i was to use one again i would.
