When ordering Line Bore Kits mark order with LB2, LB5, LB8, LB10 after
the part number.
When installing any new timing componentry we recommend using a degree

Label Premium and Extra Premium Timing Sets:
Red Label timing sets are produced using billet steel for both the
crank and camshaft sprockets. The grades of materials used are
mentioned further down this page. Premier sets are nitride hardened and
include a one-piece Torrington and Iwis chain.
label sets come with 7 or 9 crankshaft keyway sprockets depending on
crankshaft diameter. The smaller shafts tend to be best suited to 7
crank keyways, although engines like Small Block Chevs etc come with 9
so it allows more adjustment for dialing in the cam. Crankshaft
sprocket keyways are in 2 degree increments always unless otherwise
noted. The relationship from crank keyway to camshaft sprocket timing
is 2:1 meaning that the amount of advance or retard at the camshaft is
in one degree increments, IE 1, 2, 3 or 4 degrees. Multiple keyways are
a solid fixture and do not tend to move or work lose like offset
dowels, thus providing a positive locking of the cam timing to what
ever position is desired.
timing sets are light weight and stronger than any other timing set
available due to the weight savings of billet steel and CNC machinery.
No additional machining is required to fit these sets or the need for
offset bushings or drilling of cam gears.
Red Label timing sets come standard with Rollmasterʼs own premium grade
Iwis full roller timing chain. Every small and big block Chev comes
standard with a brass thrust washer and is available with an optional
one-piece Torrington thrust bearing. You will find Rollmaster has
included brass thrust washers to most of our range including Ford for
increased performance and reliability.
possible our one-piece Torrington thrust bearings can be applied to
most of our range of timing sets and listings are noted accordingly in
our Nitrated harder timing sets and those fitted with Torringtonʼs,
compared to the standard billet steel sets.
