00:08 — Commonly, gen one bearings fail, especially in the rust belt region.

00:12 — Due to the rusted components, replacement of the bearing has become a timely and difficult process.

00:15 — Pressing out the original bearing is essential to all knuckle repairs.

00:23 — It’s a very precise task, which tends to be a timely and difficult process, potentially leading to damage of the original knuckle.

00:30 — This task causes an issue, because more equipment is needed to complete the repair, and the vehicle will spend time up on the lift.

00:38 — Either by collision, regular failure or potholes in the road, most vehicles with gen one bearings will need to be replaced within 75,000 to 150,000 miles.

00:49 — NAPA’s loaded knuckle line is the solution to this problem.

00:52 — This is a new bolt-on solution to help minimize the time a vehicle is on the lift, saving time and money for this repair.

FEATURED ADVANTAGE STORIES

Timing Chain Guide Bolt

TIMING CHAIN GUIDE BOLT

Extracting what’s left of a sheared-off bolt from inside a cylinder head is almost never an easy task. In fact, it often requires removing the head from the engine and tapping out the old bolt to finish most jobs. And when that sheared bolt happens to secure a critical piece of engine hardware, there’s simply no ignoring it.

4WD HUB LOCKING ACTUATOR DELETE

When someone with a Ford F-150, Ford Expedition or Lincoln Navigator comes into the shop, complaining about a grinding sound from the four-wheel drive, there’s a common diagnosis: a bad vacuum activated front axle hub actuator. The internal diaphragm on these parts wears out from regular use, or cracks from lack of use, as well as poor internal lubrication. The grinding happens when the splined actuator doesn’t have the vacuum it needs to fully engage the axle shaft. Eventually the vacuum leak expands, preventing the system from working at all.

VVT SOLENOIDS & SPROCKETS

VVT SOLENOIDS & SPROCKETS

Variable valve timing(VVT) was a breakthrough technology when it first arrived. By continuously fine-tuning the timing of the intake or exhaust cams (or both), it became possible to achieve optimum performance while reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions. To achieve these conflicting objectives, VVT systems use electric solenoids that vary the amount of oil flowing to hydraulic cam adjusters, also called phasers.
