Dayco, an engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, has announced that its heavy-duty two-piece tensioner designed to help address repair issues for Detroit 13 and 15 series engines. The company stated that the tensioner cuts installation time in half and helps ensure fleet uptime. In addition, Dayco’s technical team has developed a step-by-step installation video and one-page technical guide to ensure technicians have the information needed for a quick and successful installation.
“With the original tensioner, techs are required to bend an eight-rib belt sideways through a narrow opening during replacement, which can lead to belt issues if not done carefully,” said Jay Buckley, director of product management, Dayco North American Aftermarket. “We’ve addressed this issue and in doing so, cut installation time significantly.”
