Valvetrain Harmony: The Hows and Whys of Jesel’s Belt Drive System The complete belt drive kit includes a cam adapter, top pulley retainer and pulley, round tooth timing belt, cam thrust shim kit, cam and crank seals, crank pulley, cam pulley, timing chain valley cover and all related hardware.  This particular kit is designed for a standard cam location, Gen VI big block Chevy (which, by the way, was something we built to run on the street).  Because of the standard cam location, no idler system is required (see the text for more info on idler pulleys).
