Corteco’s new Four-Layer Graphite/Steel Head Gasket features Whiteseal Technology to provide long-term resiliency, the crush resistance of two steel cores, and improved load distribution.

LED UV Inspection Light

Cliplight’s second generation UV LED inspection lights provide even greater intensity through focal lens technology. Each LED has its own aspherical lens element to harness and focus the UV beams of light. The Vector 7 (#87DC), with its 7 UV LEDs and rechargeable nickel metal hydride 1800mAh battery that has no memory effect, or the handy 4 UV LED Vector 4 (#84DC), powered by a 9V battery with power indicator, light up the dye and not the shop. State-of-the-art circuitry manages the light’s energy source to ensure optimum power until it is time to recharge the Vector 7, or replace the battery in the Vector 4.


Lift Kit for Ford Super Duty/Excursion

Kelderman’s 10-12″ air ride lift kit for 2005-06 4×4 Ford Super Duty pickups and Ford Excursion SUVs are designed to add both a cushioned, easy ride on the road and an impressive show height. The 10-12″ air ride by Kelderman can be installed easily. This kit can go from raising the truck 6″ (no air in the bags) to 14″ (air and shocks topped out). The rear kit replaces the factory leaf springs with a heavy-duty 4-link system. The 4-link system is very durable and eliminates the wheel hop that is found with the factory leaf springs. This is a bolt-on kit that requires minimal cutting or drilling. Options include Bilstein shocks as well as various control systems.


Safer Diaphragm Pump

Alemite recently added another diaphragm pump to its existing line. The 8207 model is UL-approved to safely transfer diesel fuel, methanol and fluids containing methanol, such as washer fluid. The new pump’s conductive aluminum construction prevents static from accumulating and generating a spark. It also includes a grounding strap to ensure that the pump remains safely grounded at all times. The pump’s simple design makes it easy to service, requiring minimal downtime.


Wireless Tow Lights

Wireless tow lights can be installed in less than five minutes and require no tools. Plug the transmitter into a four-way flat plug, strap on the lights, push the “on” button, and the vehicle is ready to go with running lights, brake lights, flashers and turn signals on loads up to 100 feet in length. Complies with DOT safety standards. Wireless tow lights are great for utility, boat, horse and snowmobile trailers; semis; farm equipment; RVs; tow trucks and other towed vehicles.
