Word forms: (regular plural) twin camshafts
( Automotive engineering : Vehicle components , Engine, transmission, and exhaust )
The belt drive for a horizontally opposed twin camshaft engine consists of two separate belt drives.
Most twin camshaft engines have camshafts that are chain-driven or belt-driven.
The advantage of twin camshaft valve arrangements, as opposed to single camshaft valve arrangements, is that the
camshafts can be moved independently of each other.
