They also manufacture wire sets for forklifts. All products are attractively packaged, and carry a 5 year 100,000 km warranty, as detailed on the box.


Improved Filters

Several industry-standard tests have demonstrated that Baldwin’s new BF1259 filters exceed OE specifications in efficiency and contaminant holding capacity. The enhanced performance of Baldwin’s new Interblend media, combined with the filter’s heavy-duty construction, make it the best aftermarket replacement choice for Cummins engines.

Long-Lasting Ball Joint

Moog Chassis Parts’ new Problem Solver ball joint addresses the premature wear of upper ball joints on GM S-10 and S-15 (T) series light trucks and SUVs. Ball joints in many of today’s light trucks and SUVs experience high lateral loads which can exert undue stress on bearing surfaces and lead to premature failure of the ball stud or socket. The new ball joint eliminates excessive radial deflection, for exceptional load-carrying capacity and increased durability.


Expanded Wiper Blade Program

Old World/PAK has expanded its wiper blade program to include one of the industry’s most complete wiper blade lines, including value blades, OE replacement, and premium blades in the most requested sizes from 12″ to 28″, and also in some of today’s hottest colours. Blades have been independently certified to SAE and ASTM standards, for quality and improved profits.
