A boosts for business through sump sales

fai-sumpA bad winter has seen the deterioration of many road surfaces meaning pothole debris can often attack the underside of a vehicle. The sump pan is directly in the firing line and is also under threat from speed humps. If a sump is in any way damaged there is a risk of engine failure, so checking and replacement, where required, is highly recommended.

Our FAI product line-up now offers a sump range consisting of 50 separate references all of which are leak and pressure tested. Each sump is also laser etched with the FAI logo to signify the quality of the part. All FAI sump pans include the sump plug and gasket or silicon as required.

FAI sumps are 'wet sumps', serving as a reservoir for the engine oil required in the lubrication of the bearings, pistons, valve train and other internal components. The wet sump is a more practical design as it is bolted to the bottom of the engine so there is no need for external hoses or pipes. Wet sump engines will have a single oil pump fitted, generally in close proximity to the sump so the oil pick up pipe can feed from the sump.

FAI Sump pans are available in steel or aluminium dependent on the vehicle manufacturer's requirements and each contain a drain plug for ease where can i buy viagra with paypal of oil changes.

Go further with OSRAM Night Breaker Bulbs

osramBe safe and be seen on the road, or save a few cents. Given the option most motorists will pay a little extra for improved vehicle lighting performance, it is usually just a question of pointing out the benefits of upgrading, rather than simply assuming the customer always wants the cheapest.

For example the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER LASER bulb really does make a difference at night. It is the brightest halogen automotive light in the OSRAM line-up thanks to innovative laser ablation technology. It means these lights shine up to 130% brighter than standard halogen lamps. The combination of highly engineered filament and pure xenon gas filling ensure an extra light output which also means the lamps provide up to a 40 metre longer light beam and up to 20% whiter light. This adds up to more light and improved visibility. It can help drivers identify and react to traffic hazards more quickly.

Why let your customers take a chance on an inferior bulb when you can recommend OSRAM original NIGHT BREAKER LASER technology from ADE?

Mann offers practical fuel filter fitting advice

mnn-videoADE filter supplier MANN has launched an installation video providing step-by-step instructions for workshops for installing and removing the new PU 11 001 z KIT and PU 11 002 z KIT fuel filters.

The installation sequence for the new fuel filters differs significantly from that of its predecessors, WK 820/5 up to and including WK820/22, with for example, the filter now installed on the underside of the vehicle rather than in the engine compartment. The mechanic must therefore first identify whether he has to drive the vehicle onto a lifting platform or over a pit.

When changing the filter, a patent pending bayonet holder in the housing cover and on the filter ensures that the filter remains in the housing and does not fall out. The fuel can flow into the cover, where it collects and drains away via the drain screw. When installing the new filter, it must be engaged by turning it slightly.

The video containing full installation and removal instructions is available on the MANN-FILTER YouTube channel and in the MANN-FILTER online catalog. The new fuel filters still come with printed installation instructions, which also contain a link to the video.
