Inside the box: new labels highlight the calibre of our products

Now, Fuelmiser is going one step further to assure customers of the exceptional quality of every component that bears the Fuelmiser name.

“To highlight to our customers just what they’re getting when they choose Fuelmiser, we’ve recently introduced product labels that showcase exactly what’s in each box,” explains Gerry.

Did you know that Fuelmiser has always sourced products from world-leading OEM brand manufacturers such as Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi and Toyota? Or that Fuelmiser also sources quality branded parts from VDO, Delphi, Facet, FAE, Valeo and YEC?

“The new labels allow for quick, easy identification of the superior brand(s) that have been included in each product box, providing mechanics and workshop owners with total confidence in the quality and reliability of Fuelmiser components.”

“Fuelmiser has always sourced products from world-leading brands, and we have strong, ongoing relationships with these manufacturers. Now, with our new easy-to-read labelling, mechanics and workshop owners can clearly see the quality that’s contained in every Fuelmiser box. This approach differentiates us even further from our competitors,” says Gerry.

March 02, 2015 Keeping your 4WD on track with new accessories range

Drivetech 4x4 is proud to announce that it has added accessories to its existing extensive hard parts offer.

The addition of accessories means that Drivetech 4x4 not only has the hard parts to keep your 4WD on the road, it now has the accessories to help you enjoy that vehicle off road as well.

In the Drivetech 4x4 tradition, the new Accessories range of products feature high quality at an affordable price.

Drivetech 4x4 Accessories Range

Be prepared with Drivetech 4x4 Accessories 

Drivetech 4x4 Accessories Product Manager, Nick Lockett, says that the Accessories range includes everything you’ll need to get out of those tight off road situations – without risk to life, limb or vehicles.

“Most 4WD enthusiasts like to give anything a go and they do find themselves in a tight spot from time to time. It could be getting bogged in sand, getting stuck in mud or clay, or struggling to get back up a slippery incline after wet weather.” Having Drivetech 4x4 Accessories on board gives you the peace of mind to enjoy your vehicle, safe in the knowledge that you’re prepared to deal with challenges on the spot.”

“Of course the ideal situation is that you won’t need to use recovery equipment at all, but as we know, things don’t always go 100 per cent to plan when you take your 4WD off road.”

Nick says the new Drivetech 4x4 Accessories range was developed off the back of strong customer demand.

“Customers and stockists have been asking us to round out the Drivetech 4x4 range with 4WD recovery equipment. There is a lot of demand out there for the unique Drivetech 4x4 combination of great quality and reasonable prices.”

Safety is paramount

All Drivetech 4x4 Accessories have been independently tested within Australia.

“Four wheel driving can be dangerous. Getting out of a bog involves a lot of force, for example, so it’s important that your recovery equipment is high quality and does the job properly and safely ensuring no one gets hurt.” 

“The Drivetech 4x4 Accessories range is really strong, really good gear. And it’s affordable. You can’t ask for much more than that,” says Nick.

Drivetech 4x4 offers the complete package

Drivetech 4x4 is well known for its extensive range of under bonnet and under vehicle parts and repair kits. The addition of accessories completes the package.

The new Drivetech 4x4 Accessories range includes:

  • Recovery equipment:
    • Snatch straps
    • Bow shackles
    • Drag chains
    • Recovery hitches
    • Snatch blocks
    • Complete recovery kits
    • Miscellaneous essentials (gloves, folding saws, folding shovels, head lamps)
    • High lift jacks and accessories
    • LED Lighting and accessories

      • 6” round spot and flood
      • Underbody armour (bash plates)
      • Snorkels.

Brake Caliper Wind Back kit

Winding back the rear brake caliper pistons on any vehicle fitted with an in-built handbrake mechanism couldn’t be easier with the 21 piece Brake Caliper Wind Back Kit from Drivetech.

The kit caters for either clockwise or anti-clockwise applications with various piston adapters.

Remove and install spark plugs on a huge range of European and Japanese vehicles with the European Spark Plug Set (Part # UXT–10250) from Drivetech.

The set comes with four sockets – two 90 mm and two 250 mm for the overhead cam, deep well type configurations. Each socket has been designed to enable easy spark plug removal.

September 02, 2014 New Tru-Flow Cooling and Timing Catalogue

New Tru-Flow Cooling and Timing Catalogue

Tru-Flow has just released the latest print edition of its Cooling and Timing Catalogue – an invaluable resource for workshops all over the country. New Tru-Flow cooling and timing products are added to the online catalogue as soon as they become available, while the hard copy catalogue is revised and re-printed periodically.

“We know how much workshop owners rely on good quality part catalogues. A well organised catalogue can take the time and hassle out of finding the right part for the job,” says Motospecs Product Manager, Anthony Appleby. “While most workshops happily access online catalogues, a print catalogue can be easier to manage in the workshop.” “It’s obviously tricky to take a computer out to a vehicle. With a print catalogue you can refer to it on the spot, to double check what you’re ordering against the vehicle you’re working on.”

The new Tru-Flow Cooling and Timing Catalogue features more images than ever before and the pages are colour coded according to model type, simplifying the task of part identification.

Timing belt and timing chain kits now included

Timing belt and timing chain kits are a brand new inclusion within the latest Tru-Flow Cooling and Timing Catalogue.

“We introduced the extensive Tru-Flow range of OE standard timing belt and timing chain kits last year in response to market demand for quality parts in this category at a more affordable price. The feedback we’ve had from workshops and resellers has been excellent.” “Workshops understand how vital it is to service timing belts in particular according to recommended intervals – the risk of engine damage from a snapped timing belt is too great to risk it.”

“Tru-Flow timing belt and timing chain kits come with everything you need to complete the service or repair. Plus, they are top quality at a low price.” “Our long standing connections with reputable OE suppliers means we can obtain high quality parts at a lower price point than many of our competitors.” “Now, all cooling and timing products are located within the one catalogue, so ordering from Tru-Flow is easier than ever.”

Why Tru-Flow? Quality, range and warranty

“Tru-Flow products are all superior quality and are sourced from major worldwide manufacturers in Japan, Korea, Italy, Germany and USA. Brand include the likes of Koyo, Ina, NSK, GMB, NTN, Goodyear and Continental Contitech.”

Tru-Flow products come with a minimum 2 year/40,000km Australia-wide guarantee. “An exception is the Tru-Flow timing belt and timing chain kits – these feature the bonus of a service interval warranty which comes standard with all kits.” “This is better than what the competition offers. If the service interval is 100,000 kms, that’s how long the warranty lasts!” says Anthony.

Tru-Flow cooling and timing components have an excellent track record for quality in the Australian automotive aftermarket.The Tru-Flow range is extensive and includes:

  • Water pumps
  • Timing belt kits
  • Timing belt/water pump kits
  • Timing chain kits
  • Thermostat and housing assemblies
  • Fan clutches
  • Radiator fan blades and
  • Heater taps.

Applications included in the catalogue are Alfa Romeo, Asia, Audi, BMW, Chery, Chrysler, Citroen, Daewoo, Daihatsu, Dodge, Eunos, Fiat, Ford, Great Wall, Holden, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Landrover, Lotus, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, MG, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Proton, Renault, Rover, Saab, Seat, Skoda, Ssangyong, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo.

August 26, 2014 New Drivetech Transmission Service Kit Catalogue

Announcing Drivetech’s new Transmission Service Kit Catalogue

Drivetech is pleased to announce the release of its new Transmission Service Kit Catalogue. This ultimate reference guide for resellers has been fully updated and now features more than 190 part numbers and more than 1200 vehicle applications.

Drivetech Service Kit Catalogue

Find the kit you need quickly!

The new Drivetech Transmission Service Kit Catalogue is extremely clear and easy-to-read.

“It’s arranged according to vehicle application for easy product identification,” explains Drivetech Category Manager, Mario Novak.

“Transmission speed is also listed for each product, further assisting with part identification. Plus, the catalogue features an image identification guide, which resellers in particular will find very handy.”

The importance of quality transmission

“Modern transmissions are highly complex, with multiple gears, electronics and shift modes. On top of that, the greater engine power of modern vehicles makes the driveability delivered by the transmission more vital than ever.”

“In particular, the filter is a key transmission component and we see many lower cost transmission service kits featuring inferior filters,” says Mario. “The use of inferior grade plastic can see a transmission filter crack or swell, causing oil cavitation, engagement and shift issues.”

Drivetech only supply filters made with optimum filtration media.

“Poor assembly of the filter, such as crimping of the two housings is another common fault in lower cost sourced transmission products, and can allow aeration of the fluid resulting in poor performance and reliability.”

“Using a second class transmission service kit is an unwise decision. The potential for problems and transmission failure is high and the risk to businesses is too great.”

 

Why Drivetech Transmission Service Kits?

You can rely on the kits featured in the Drivetech Transmission Service Kit Catalogue to deliver a high quality, long lasting transmission repair.

Drivetech has close connections to the specialist transmission repair industry and a proud history supplying the market with OE standard transmission service kits.

“Our strong industry standing reflects almost 40 years of delivering reliable replacement components that do the job right, first time.”

The Drivetech Transmission Service Kit range is comprehensive and includes only the highest quality components sourced from industry leading manufacturers.

“It’s just not worth the risk of fitting inferior transmission replacement parts. With a Drivetech Transmission Service Kit you can be confident of maximum filtration and life of product at a very reasonable price point,” says Mario.Drivetech Filter Service Kit

As well as the filter and gasket, Drivetech Transmission Service Kits come with all the components required to perform a transmission service to the manufacturer’s standard. “We’re confident our kits lead the market. When you factor in our 2 year/40,000km warranty, the Drivetech Transmission Service Kit range really does sit head and shoulders above the competition.”
