FAI TVD kits complete with fitting accessories now available

fai-tvdBuilding on the success of its range of torsional vibration dampers which were introduced just over a year ago, FAI has now introduced of torsional vibration damper kits, including the crankshaft bolts to further enhance its range of engine repair products.

Depending on the application some bolts are stretch bolts. It is not recommended to re-use old stretch bolts as these will be deformed and will not torque up correctly, or in worst case snap during fitting. Crankshaft bolts must always be installed using the manufacturers recommended torque settings and mechanics should never use an air tool to loosen or tighten these bolts.

23 of FAI’s TVD's are now available with fitting accessories such as bolts and washers to help complete the repair quicker and easier. Any part number ending in a 'K' will include fitting accessories, where as any TVD without this suffix, will purely be the damper on it's own.

A full listing of FAI TVDs and kits is featured on TecDoc and can also be viewed in the online catalogue at

UFI showcases latest OE innovations

ufi-may18Emphasising its global strength UFI Filters recently showcased some of its latest innovations at A global company now in Automechanika in Dubai. In particular the exhibition was used to highlight some of UFI’S latest OE developments, which are also available for the aftermarket through ADE. These included:

The oil filter for IVECO and NEW HOLLAND applications, available in the aftermarket catalogue as a complete module under the UFI code 65.087.00 and the replacing cartridge with the UFI code 25.111.00 The multi-layer pleated filter media ensures high-filtration efficiency (more 99.5% @12μ), high pressure resistance (more than 35 bar) and thanks to the plastic housing a lightweight construction.

The complete module of the oil filter for BMW applications with replacement available under UFI 25.148.00. The high technology module has a body made from plastic, reinforced with fiberglass that ensures significant weight savings, reduced fuel consumption and a drop in pollutant emissions. The filter can operate under pressures of up to 5 bar and even greater. The filter media maximizes the filter surface area minimizing the pressure drops and the efficiency.

The fuel filter for BMW and MINI applications, UFI 31.926.01, characterised by an aluminium casing and horizontal positioning directly connected to the chassis. This allows both the weight and size of the unit to be kept to a minimum. The internal filter element, with cellulose filtering media, ensures a filtration efficiency of over 96% with particles of 4 μm, even with high mileages.

The top performance fuel pre-filter for MAN applications available under the UFI code 24.035.01. The cellulose-synthetic cialis pas cher media ensures high filtration efficiency, water separation capacity more than 98%.

The drying filter for heavy duty breaking systems on IVECO and many other applications, FI code 27.259.00. This avoids condensation of the air humidity contained in the system. The porous media has the capacity to absorb and retain the humidity of the air that passes through it, discharging the water deposit to the exterior of the braking system through a suitable air circulation. Drying filters consequently increase the reliability and the durability of the braking system.

The oil filter for powerful 5.0 litre V8 and 3.0 litre engines for JAGUAR and LAND ROVER applications. The filter cartridge is available under the UFI code 25.073.02. This is made of synthetic fibres allowing a very high filtering efficiency of contaminant particles. To ensure a reduction in pressure drops and high ageing resistance, the synthetic fibres feature a high permeation rate and thermal-chemical compatibility.


ufi-fuelThe advanced precision engineering of the latest technology engines means that clean filtered fuel is essential to maintain the optimum performance, economy and emissions. When it comes to fuel filter choice the preference of leading vehicle manufactures around the globe is UFI.

UFI filters are chosen as Original Equipment by the largest automotive manufacturing groups including BMW, Fiat, Ford, GM Group, Hyundai-KIA, Mercedes-Benz, PSA, Nissan-Renault, Volkswagen and many more. All of these vehicle makes know they can have complete confidence in UFI filters and systems backed by 35 years of expertise and unparalleled success in motorsports fields such as Formula 1, WRC and Moto GP.

The UFI aftermarket range available from ADE offers identical quality to the filters that are fitted as OE. UFI diesel filters ensure the utmost protection and performance with innovative filter materials to guarantee the security of injectors and the injection pump. UFI H2O and WATER ELIMINATOR filters are patented to ensure the highest possible level for separation of water residue from the fuel and have excellent impurity filtration capacities. UFI diesel technology is available on the market both for Common Rail systems and for modern diesel engines.

UFI petrol filters fully meet the requirements of advanced engines including high flow rates and longer maintenance intervals.  The petrol filter range includes more than 300 reference to offer comprehensive market coverage with many of the filters in the range unique to UFI in the aftermarket.

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?
