Tensioner Bearings And Kits contain high-quality bearings, pulleys and a sweep, which are all manufactured to guarantee a long service life. If possible, the belts are made of HSN (highly saturated nitrile) because this performs better in the high-temperature areas of today’s engines.
The belt systems of modern vehicles undergo various stress factors e.g. high operating temperatures and a large number of revolutions per minute, high horsepower loads, and narrow pulleys, which are used to save space under the bonnet.
All of our belt tensioner kits display the following functional characteristics: high load transmission capacities, optimized vibration and sound insulation, robust construction, resistance against cracks and wear and tear, high flexibility, working temperature range between - 40° C and +120° C, and a long belt service life. Our belt tensioner kits for belt drives and all accessories are made in accordance with the most up-to-date technology.
Our long-standing partnership with our manufacturers guarantees the highest quality and optimum performance from every single piece of tension equipment in our range.
The deflection pulley is firmly fitted and makes sure the belt closes around the driven pulley correctly. If the belt is driving more than one unit to facilitate auxiliary drive systems, belt tension rollers are used along the entire length in order to guide the belt and ensure constant tension. The profile of these rollers is often characterized by one or more V-shaped ribs. The belt tension unit guarantees that the belt is correctly tensed and guided. The tension can be adjusted upon assembly using an eccentric or a spring which operates on the clamping plate.
A wheel bearing is a crucial part of the wheel assembly that connects the wheel and the axle. It is a set of steel balls (ball bearings) or tapers (tapered bearings), held together by a metal ring. It enables the wheel to rotate smoothly with a minimum of friction. Wheel Bearings And Kits are safety-critical components designed to sustain radial and axial loads caused by gravitation, acceleration, braking and cornering forces, so they need to be replaced when they stop working properly.
Wheel bearing kit has an average lifespan of 136,000 to 160,000 km (approximately 85,000 to 100,000 miles). This is only a rule of thumb though, the actual lifespan of a wheel bearing depends on the quality of the wheel bearing and the operating conditions.
Despite the fact that modern wheel suspension bearings and parts are easier to install than previous generations, correct installation, the usage of appropriate tools and respecting the specified torque values are still essential for maximum performance, durability and safety. Therefore, we recommend having your wheel bearings fitted by a professional mechanic that has the skills and the tools to do the job.
C.V. joints and parts form a vital link between your transmission and your wheels. All front-wheel vehicles contain four CV joints, one at either end of each of the driveshafts running from your transmission to your wheels. Four-wheel drive vehicles also commonly contain CV joints that perform an identical function for the rear wheels.
A C.V. joint kit ensures that torque from your transmission reaches the wheels at a constant speed, regardless of the position of the wheels. In other words, CV joints must maintain constant rotating force during turns, while also accounting for the natural up and down movement of your suspension.
Two common types of CV joints exist ball joints and tripod joints. Most cars use a combination of the two joint types. The outer joint, which connects the driveshaft to the wheel, uses a ball joint. The inner joints, which connect the driveshaft to the transmission, usually use tripod joints.
If you’re driving a vehicle with a manual transmission, then you need to operate the clutch and know how it works. In layman's terms, the clutch is the link between the wheels and the engine of your vehicle. It gives you the ability to disengage the engine when you step down on the clutch pedal. This will cause the vehicle to roll and turn no matter what speed you’re going. You will typically want to disengage the clutch when you stop and need to make a turn. The engine will continue to turn, even though the wheels have stopped. When you go to drive again, you will engage the clutch and give engine power back to the wheels.
The clutch release bearing is what makes the whole clutch process work. It is responsible for allowing the clutch to engage the engine and disengage the engine. The clutch bearings and parts ride on the clutch spring and connect the gearbox release mechanism to the pressure plate. After you press down on the clutch pedal, the clutch release bearing causes the pressure plate to engage the clutch disc. If you take your foot off the clutch pedal, the pressure plate disengages the clutch disc.
