Cloyes Gear and Products, an automotive timing systems manufacturer, has added 44 new part numbers to its automotive replacement parts catalogue.
The newly added part numbers increase its vehicle-in-operation (VIO) coverage by more than 20 million in Canada and the U.S. The part numbers are available for several popular vehicle brands, such as Ford, Nissan, Mazda, and Volkswagen, among others.
In addition to complete timing chain kits and high-performance timing sets, the newly launched parts also include a wide array of kits and stand-alone components such as timing chain tensioners, guides, sprockets, and chains.
“Leveraging our company’s 97 years of engineering and manufacturing expertise, we continue to design, reverse engineer, and manufacture new products that meet or exceed OE specifications,” says Jason Thompson, Vice President of Engineering and Product Development for Cloyes. “Our product management and engineering departments are also committed to researching OE data to map existing parts to new applications, giving our customers the ability to sell more products without increasing inventory.”
In a statement released by the company, Cloyes recommends replacing all timing system components at the same time. This not only reduces warranties and customer comebacks but helps in maintaining long-term system performance too.
“With the addition of these new kits and components, Cloyes offers a complete line of timing chain kits for most vehicles on the road today,” Thompson further adds. “And our focus on research and development allows us to solve common fail points, uncover opportunities, and bring solutions to customer problems.”
