Gasket maker

Gasket maker from Forte

Published:  30 January, 2014

Permatex Right Stuff Gasket Maker is designed as a replacement for conventional gaskets and is said to be more reliable than pre-cut gaskets, according to distributor Forte. It is apparently very dense so only needs to be tightened to a specific torque setting just once and is resistant to transmission fluid, coolant, oil and other automotive fluids. It is designed to protect against leaks and resist aging, weathering and thermal cycling without hardening, shrinking or cracking.

  • Clean and protect 

    A drained engine can hold up to 15% of the old oil so it makes sense to flush through the system before an oil service. Forte suggests using its Advanced Formula Motor Flush to cleanse the system of lacquer, varnish and sludge. This is also designed to neutralise the acids that build up in oil as it breaks down over time, keeping the new oil cleaner for longer and also helps to free sticking piston rings, hydraulic valve lifters and VVT systems. A Specialist Injector Cleaner addresses injector contamination in petrol engines. An Oil System Protector meets all relevant specifications and is compatible with all crankcase fill oils and helps to keep new oil effective for longer.

  • A cooling flush 

    A Bio Degreaser & Cooling System Flush from Forte is said to remove oil, sludge and rust deposits from inside cooling systems to restore heat efficiency, preventing heat-related problems. The blend of inorganic acids and inhibitors are combined with a heavy-duty cleaner and degreaser. The product is compatible with all cooling components, fluids and antifreezes including ethylene glycol and OAT based coolants. The firm recommends use at the specified coolant change interval.

  • From strength to strength 

    A further 62 part numbers, incorporating 25 brake discs, 21 filters and 16 hub assembly kits, join Comline's 7,500-strong product range. The products cover all major European, Japanese and Korean vehicles and include an air filter for Fiat 500, oil filter for Renault Master, Nissan Qashqai+2, Vauxhall Movano, a brake disc for BMW's 2, 3 and 4 Series and a hub assembly kit for the Nissan Qashqai.

  • Flexible alignment 

    A mobile alignment product has been produced by Absolute Alignment, specialists in providing Rav 4 wheel alignment equipment. The Rav TD1760 WS Bluetooth wheel aligner runs on domestic power or a small generator. It has Bluetooth alignment heads and wheel clamps which fit most vehicles, turnplates and adjustable wheel stands - ideal for mobile mechanics and motorsport teams. Technical sales director Chris Dear says the advantage of this product is that it doesn't require a dedicated area to work in, "We've had our units in use in home garages and even outdoor driveways. As long as the area is reasonably flat the wheel stands can compensate for the basics, leaving the clever Rav software to do the rest."

  • New sensors 

    Blue Print's engine management range has nearly 1,050 part numbers for around 5,500 applications and includes camshaft position sensors, knock sensors, MAP sensors, oxygen sensors and many more. New additions include a camshaft position sensor for the Suzuki Jimny, Swift and Wagon, a throttle body for the Daewoo and Chevrolet Matiz, a knock sensor for the Toyota Auris, Prius, Yaris and other models as well as a crankshaft angle sensor for the Kia Rio 1.3i.
