Timing chain:

The timing chain consists of two gears and a chain.

A small gear slides on the front of the crankshaft. A larger gear is bolted to the front of the camshaft. The chain rides on these two gears. The gears are lined up on a dimple in each gear.
That sets the mechanical timing of the engine.
