Magnum Gaskets has announced another product line expansion in the second quarter of 2013. Magnum is introducing 33 new OE quality head bolt sets, covering thousands of the most popular make/model/year combinations for domestic and import vehicles. Magnum resellers have requested head bolts as a natural add-on sale to complement Magnum’s recently introduced cylinder head gaskets and the entire premium Magnum Gasket line.
“With the introduction of torque-to-yield head bolts in the early ‘90s, replacing head bolts with every head gasket installation became a necessity because bolts were intentionally stretched beyond the point of permanent distortion.” said Magnum’s director of engineering, Jerry Rosenquist, “We also strongly recommend that conventional head bolts be replaced on pre-1990 engines because of the corrosion, wear and re-use they have experienced in many years of service.”
For almost twenty years, Magnum’s parent company, Modern Silicone Technologies Inc. (MSI), has manufactured gaskets for major aftermarket brands and OEMs. Magnum vice president, Derek Data, explains, “Adding competitively-priced head bolt sets to our product line, is yet another opportunity for our distribution channel partners to enhance profits and bring better value to end users.”
Magnum maintains a “USA First” policy that gives priority to manufacturing and sourcing parts and materials in North America. More than 90% of Magnum products are designed, manufactured and packaged in the U.S.A. The current Magnum Gasket line covers more than 80% of sales in manifold, valve cover and oil pan gasket categories for domestic and import cars and light trucks at very competitive prices. Magnum’s growing line of world-class, “OE or better” cylinder head gaskets round out the product offering. For more information, visit www.magnumgaskets.com or call 847-580-6110.
