360° wheel keeps turning

The 360° initiative continues to source and bring in ‘dealer only’ parts to the FPS portfolio. The recent addition is a new Wet Timing Belt Kit for popular Ford applications.

The new Belt in Oil (wet belt) kit – part no. 1562244-O (OE nos.1448639 and 1562244) covers popular 1.8TDCi Ford applications (2002>).

Whilst timing chains that lasted the lifetime of the engine were originally specified in these applications, design changes at OE level meant, that from 2002, a wet belt was fitted on newer versions of the engine. Since then, this wet belt has been added to the same service interval as the top end (dry) timing belt kit, which too is available from Gates, via FPS – part no. K015541XS.

Previously only available direct from dealers, this wet timing belt kit represents both great sales and a strong upsell opportunity for factors by offering both top and bottom end kits required for a full system overhaul from the same source.

Both kits can be found on MAM Autocat+ and F: Drive under:  Engine Parts > Belts, Chains. Contact your local FPS branch to place an order.

FPS has added many new parts to its portfolio through the 360° initiative. Ask your FPS representative to show you the new 360° product wheel – a double sided, interactive flyer, displaying some of the best-selling ‘hard to source’ parts available on the F:Drive and MAM Autocat+
