AAPEX Live 2022 Coverage
Dayco, an engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, announced it is expanding its line of serpentine belt kits, introducing 32 new SKUs that cover millions of today’s domestic and import light trucks, SUVs and light-duty fleet vehicles on the road.
Each OE-quality serpentine belt kit includes all application-specific components needed to complete a front-end accessory drive (FEAD) system repair, the company noted. Currently available to order for customers in the U.S. and Canada, the 32 new part numbers include Dayco premium belts, tensioners and pulleys when called for by the OEM.
In addition to Dayco’s exclusive flat spring technology tensioner and durable idler pulleys that reduce vibration while extending belt life, each kit will include at least one of three different Dayco belts depending on application:
Standard Serpentine Belt – This EPDM belt’s rib profile is engineered to conform to high mileage, worn or misaligned drives and helps eliminate noisy belt conditions.
Aramid Cord Belt – Specifically for applications that have noise, vibration or harshness issues, or in-drive systems in which tensioner take-up is minimal.
ela® Belt – Engineered for two to four point drives on light-duty vehicles that do not require automatic or manual tensioning. The belt allows for the high elongation required for installation, yet provides the proper tension maintenance properties to transmit the accessory loads demanded for the drive.
“The benefit to changing out all front-end components at the same time is that it helps prevent comebacks, reduces noise issues and enhances overall system performance,” said Jay Buckley, director of Product Management for Dayco North America. “And, our new kits make it easier than ever – as well as more affordable – to complete a full front-end accessory drive repair at the same time.”
