“Kelpro has responded with our brand new catalogue that offers reasonably priced OEM equivalent parts that workshops and  crash repairers can fit to their customers’ vehicles with confidence.”

May 21, 2014 Stay on the front foot with Kelpro’s latest Engine Mount Catalogue

Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue Ed 9

Sourcing the correct engine mount is simple with the latest Engine Mount Catalogue from Kelpro.

Including over 200 new lines, the Kelpro Engine Mount range now consists of more than 1,700 individual mounts. With the Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue, you can confidently and quickly source engine mounts for virtually any vehicle in the New Zealand car park.

The new Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue is easy to read and includes high quality images in the pictorial section.  Many mount images include dimensions to help customers identify difficult application listings before placing the order.

“The Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue is an essential reference guide for workshops. To maintain a competitive advantage in the market and be capable of servicing the wide range of vehicles on the road today, you need to be able to obtain the correct engine mount quickly and with complete confidence,” says Motospecs Product Manager, Tim Wiggins.

Servicing the complex modern vehicle

Original equipment manufacturers are designing increasingly elaborate engines and engine mounts in a bid to reduce vehicle noise, vibration and harshness. Variations such as hydraulic, multiple layer and engine oil pressure assisted mounts are typical of the newer styles being featured in today’s vehicles. In addition, the number of engine mounts has increased – many front wheel drive vehicles now typically feature up to five engine mounts.

Today’s complex new engine designs create additional challenges for workshops and mechanics when servicing and repairing the vast range of vehicles now commonplace on New Zealand roads.

“The new Kelpro Engine Mount Catalogue helps workshops deal with the complexity of modern vehicles. Our enormous range of engine mounts means there is every chance of finding the Mount you need, no matter what the make or model,” says Tim.

“With customers now bringing in vehicles from all over the world including Japan, Europe, Korea and China, workshops need to be prepared.”

The top quality you’d expect from Kelpro

Kelpro is a trusted brand that consistently delivers on range, availability, pricing and know-how. Sourced from only the most reputable suppliers, Kelpro engine mounts are manufactured to OE standard and very high quality, which is vital given the additional pressure on today’s engine mounts.

“Most modern vehicles are front wheel drive and have more compact engine bays than rear wheel drive vehicles, and this places more load on the engine mounts,” explains Tim.

“Many of today’s engines also produce a much higher degree of horse power and torque, which puts additional load on the engine mounts, in particular the torsional mounts. Meanwhile, transmission mounts support the whole weight of the transmission, so durability is critical for these mounts.”

Kelpro is one of the leaders in the development of automotive aftermarket engine mounts, and as Kelpro engine mounts are competitively priced, you’re not only guaranteed an OE standard part, it won’t break the bank!

March 17, 2014 New Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue the most comprehensive ever

Kelpro Oil seal CatalogueEdition 5 of the Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue has just been released.

An invaluable resource for workshops, the revised edition is the most comprehensive oil seal catalogue in the local automotive aftermarket, from Kelpro – one of the leading oil seal suppliers in Australia and New Zealand. The Kelpro Oil Seal catalogue features more than 300 new part numbers and includes engine, axle and transmission seals. In total, the new catalogue comprises more than 1,100 individual seals, covering a greater percentage of the Australian car park.

Motospecs product manager, Tim Wiggins, says the new catalogue – which is available as hard copy or online at www.kelpro.com.au – is easy to read and includes essential information for workshops and repairers.  “In particular, the catalogue’s application guide now includes a note section with many sizes listed, making part identification easier. It also includes a complete oil seal size listing at the back, which is a helpful reference,” says Tim. Considerable effort and research has gone into ensuring the Kelpro oil seal range meets the needs of today’s workshops, servicing modern vehicles.

“Over the last ten years, vehicles have been engineered to generate more speed, which in turn creates more heat in the engine. As a result, today’s oil seals need to be able to tolerate higher temperatures,” says Tim. “All Kelpro oil seals are made from high performance polymers that comply with high speed and high temperature specifications. Seals made from rubber compounds (NBR) will no longer cope with the demands of a modern engine.”

The replacement of quality seals is critical to ensuring cars don’t return to the workshop with oil leaks. The latest range of Kelpro oil seals are the highest quality, made to exacting OE standards and material specifications. “This includes exact OE material specifications on engine and transmission oil seals for most vehicle applications from 1996.” “Kelpro oil seals will deliver an exact OE fit, which is vital if these crucial parts are going to do their job.” Oil seals are critical to maintaining the engine’s integrity and ensuring engine, transmission and differential oils don’t leak.

Kelpro Part No 98365

Kelpro Part No 98653“Because of Kelpro’s excellent, long-standing relationships with manufacturers and suppliers all over the world, we are able to provide an extensive range of OE equivalent oil seals that will fit perfectly first time, every time.” For more information or to request a copy of the new Kelpro Oil Seals catalogue (Part No: CAT-KOS5), please contact: 0800 809 808

May 30, 2011 Kelpro Power Steering Pumps

Motospecs is proud to announce the release of a new product category to the already large range of Kelpro products - Kelpro Power Steering Pumps.

motospecs.com.au/assets/images/news/kelpro_pump_1.jpgKelpro, a major supplier of steering & suspension parts to the Australian automotive aftermarket industry, is excited to introduce its new range of replacement Power Steering Pumps.

The Kelpro range of new Power Steering Pumps will compliment the current ranges of leading Kelpro Steering products such as, Power Steering Hoses, Steering Rack Boots as well as Steering & Suspension Bushes.

Kelpro’s new replacement Power Steering Pumps have been designed as an easy bolt-on unit, making the replacement process effortless and eliminating costs and liabilities associated with core units & deposits.

The new range consists of 30 part numbers with over 20 new Pumps currently under development for future release. The Kelpro range covers over 500 vehicle applications and is catalogued in the new Motospecs electronic catalogue, with new additions continually being updated.

There will also be a complete Kelpro Steering hard copy catalogue available later in the year. In the meantime, a list of the current range is available from your Motospecs representative. Alternatively you can contact Customer Service on 1800 605 673 for a list of the new Kelpro Power steering Pumps.

Superior quality, built to OE specifications

motospecs.com.au/assets/images/news/kelpro_pump_2.jpgKelpro’s replacement power steering pumps are built to Original Equipment specifications and utilise only the highest quality new components, sourced from industry-leading suppliers and manufacturers. In addition, all internal components are mirrored to original pump design by application. These factors are crucial when you consider the radical advancements in steering technology in recent years.

All Kelpro Power Steering Pumps are exact replacement for the original pump and are tested to meet or exceed OE specifications for flow, pressure and NVH ( Noise Vibration and Harshness). All units are also ultrasonically cleaned and physically tested for pressure and flow together, to ensure absolute quality.

The vast majority of our new range of power steering pumps comes already fitted with a pulley, which eliminates the need to install one separately. As mechanics and workshop owners know, installing a separate pulley requires specialist equipment and tools, so eliminating the need for this step in most cases presents a significant opportunity to save both time and money.

All Kelpro Power Steering Pumps come with a two-year / 40,000 km warranty.
