Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0806550A1] A valve timing control device comprising, a rotor (30) fixed on a cam shaft (10) of an engine, a housing member (50) rotatably mounted on the cam shaft (10) so as to surround the rotor (30), a chamber R0 defined between the housing member (50) and the rotor (30) and having a pair of circumferentially opposed walls (55,56), a vane (40) mounted on the rotor (30) and extended outwardly therefrom in the radial direction into the chamber (R0) so as to divide the chamber into a first pressure chamber (R1) and a second pressure chamber (R2), a fluid supplying means (100) for supplying fluid under pressure to at least a selected one of the first pressure chamber (R1) and the second pressure chamber (R0) and a force means (92,93,107) for expanding one of the first pressure chamber (R1) and the second pressure chamber (R2). <IMAGE>
