Non-interference engine explanation animation/Videos ?
I did ask my Toyota dealer about published material on 1999 Camry 2.2 non-interference engine that did not cause piston hitting valves/ valve bent condition during timing belt slipping off spindle event.
They did not find any. I searched toyota.com , gates.com & alldata nothing showed up.
Are there any such material exist?
I found the generic piece http://www.samarins.com/glossary/dohc.html
This page, from Gates' website : http://www.gates.com/products/automotive/passenger-car-and-light-truck/timing-system/automotive-timing-belts
It explains only one part, Interference Engine. Did gates purposefully omit the Free Running explanation?
Toyota should be proud of explaining about their non-Interference Engine characteristics, but they are shying away in reality.
Thanks for your comments update 7/4/2015.
I do see "non-interference (or free running) motor does not have pistons and valves which share the same space - if the cam/valve timing is interrupted, no damage between cam and valve should occur." in various blogs/forums.
How does a mechanic learn/operate upon it? I did not find this info in repair manual/ALLDATA etc. Is it documented in repair steps?
Does all non-interference (or free running) motor have same characteristics/behavior ?
Thanks for sharing.
