Naturally, with a product group as critical to the health of the engine as power transmission, the quality of the components is paramount, which is a given with Dayco, as there is no distinction between the products it manufactures for original equipment (OE) or aftermarket supply.

However, alongside this quality assurance Dayco is also committed to empower technicians with practical and helpful information to help make the sometimes complicated process of installing its replacement components as straightforward and trouble free as possible.

Generally this information is supplied via its technical bulletin information, which is available through the Dayco website alongside the WebCatalogue, which features a host of additional information from drive layouts and service details to comprehensive product application and cross-reference data. In fact everything to provide factors and technicians with the ‘real world’ information they need to ensure they carry out a first rate belt and component installation.

As the use of smartphones and tablets is becoming evermore commonplace, Dayco has witnessed a distinct increase in the use of this more efficient and faster way to access the information held within its electronic parts catalogue.

Redesigned to make searching its data both simpler and faster, the benefits of the newly reformatted product catalogue are particularly notable on a smartphone, where the multiple search and specific garage reference information functions are easy to use and the results clearly displayed.

Even more technical information is available through the garage area of the website and Dayco recommend that workshops sign up to which is a free service and where they can find, among other resources, technical information specific to vehicle applications, general product focused service information, drive system layouts and Dayco’s electronic catalogue. Those that sign up will then also receive email updates when any new technical information is issued and for new-to-range additions.
