TRIDON

Tridon Wiper Blades are manufactured to the highest quality to ensure a crisp clean wipe. The low profile low lift design uses a galvanised zinc steel frame and stainless steel rivets for maximum corrosion protection, along with plastic bushes for a smooth operation, less noise and longer service life.

The range is available in 15 lengths, from 280mm (11″) to 710mm (28″), each blade comes complete with adaptors to suit various arm style designs.

The Tridon wiper blade range uses O.E. metal rail style refills. The refill can be interchanged with Tridon narrow back refills in either metal rail or plastic once the original refill has reached the end of its service life. The replacement Tridon wiper blade must be compatible with the vehicle’s original wiper blade; the Tridon wiper range has been carefully researched and engineered to suit each specific application.

Threadlockers are superior to conventional lock washers, nylon inserts, and other mechanical devices because they secure the entire fastener assembly against loosening from shock and vibration by filling the space between threaded metal parts, curing to form a tough, adhesive bond and seal. They also seal the threads against leakage, preventing rust and corrosion. Threadlockers remain the most reliable way to lock and seal threaded fasteners of all shapes and sizes, before or after assembly.

belt tensioners

Belt Tensioners

Gates DriveAlign automatic belt tensioners are application-specific and OEM equivalent or better in both performance and fit. Gates cover the biggest range of aftermarket automatic tensioners for the Australian market. This means more sales opportunities, reduced warranties and fewer costly comebacks.

Gates builds only round torsional spring automatic belt tensioners. These provide constant belt tension through rotation rather than creating tension through coiling. Round torsional spring tensioners are the OEM choice because they are stronger than the flat spring types. For this reason, Gates tensioners are made to OE specifications, with the OEM form, fit and long-lasting performance.

Unlike so-called “universal” tensioners, Gates tensioners require no retrofitting to make them work, they bolt on just like the one you took off. Choosing the right tensioner is easier when you’re choosing Gates.

Tensioners, like any other part, don’t last forever. To reduce belt warranty problems, comebacks and labour claims, Gates recommend that the belt and the tensioner are replaced at the same time. It is highly probable that the source of belt system damage (excessive belt wear, tension loss, vibration, misalignment, etc.) is the result of a worn tensioner.

A vast majority of vehicles with serpentine belts often use automatic belt tensioners. Tensioners are built into the drive system for several reasons. They are designed to maintain correct tension for the life of the belt. As well as reduce maintenance by eliminating the need to manually retention belts on a periodic basis. and provide consistent and correct belt tension. A belt that slips maybe noisy can have reduced service life and can cause accessories to function improperly.

spark plugs

Spark Plugs

An internal combustion engine requires three key ingredients to operate: air, fuel and spark. The spark plugs are a critical engine component that provides the spark that ignites the air-fuel mixture that drives an engine.

A spark plug operates by directing electrical current to flow through a centre electrode, forming a spark across an electrode (or air) gap, completing the circuit to a ground electrode. The centre electrode is surrounded by a ceramic insulator which is non-conductive preventing current leakage and ensuring electricity flows in the desired direction.

engine pulley

Engine Pulleys

With the increasing use of serpentine drive belts on late model engines, more idler and tensioner pulleys are being sold than ever before. Many of these pulleys are manufactured from moulded plastic to reduce cost. However, plastic offers limited durability when exposed to abrasive dirt, heat, or when excessive belt tensions is applied.

All engine pulleys incorporate ball bearings that run at very high revs relative to engine speed. Increasing belt load and exposure to dirt or moisture accelerates bearing wear. Nuline engine pulley designs replace moulded plastic with SG Iron (the same material used in harmonic balancers) or pressed steel offering far greater strength and resistance to wear when exposed to dirt. Special attention in manufacture is given to belt face contours and dimensions to ensure drive belt compatibility.

All ball bearings used are from OEM manufacturers and feature C3 rated high speed races,high temperature lubricant and heavy duty silicone seals for maximum service life at high RPM’s. The combination of these engineering features at a very economical price has made Nuline the number one choice for Australian vehicle repairers.

All popular domestic and US based 6 cylinder and V8 applications are covered by this range. Many popular imports and SUV applications that are particularly prone to pulley failure are also included.

filters

Filters

A filters job is to separate out and prevent potentially contaminant particles from entering an engine. Air and fuel filters will catch dust particles and moisture. Oil filters will focus on metalparticles, sludge and carbon.

AAD Offers the following ranges:

SAKURA

The Sakura range includes oil, air, fuel and cabin filters for most vehicles on Australian roads today. With over 20 years’ experience in the Australian market, Sakura the brand is now well known and trusted for their high quality filters. All Sakura filters are guaranteed free from defect and are made in an ISO/TS approved factory.

Sakura is a world-class quality filter specialist with a huge range. Offering one of the biggest ranges in the Australian filter market with more than 1400 part numbers now available. Sakura offers a competitive price advantage, with no compromise on quality backed by its guarantee of all filters being defect free. This gives a definite reason for our customers to introduce these filters into their businesses. AAD is giving customers a real choice in filtration with Ryco and Sakura ranges now offered.

RYCO

Utilising Australia’s only dedicated filtration laboratory and stringent testing procedures, Ryco’s design philosophy is to meet the vehicle manufacturers’ performance requirements. A good performing filter must excel in ALL 3 critical areas to be deemed fit todo the job: Efficiency, Life and Flow. The Ryco Engineering team conducts regular testing in these 3 critical areas, so that the Ryco name continues to provide you with genuine performance high quality filters, that you can trust.
Ryco Filters available from AAD include:

Oil

A superior oil filter performing efficiently will:

  • Prevent damage to the engine’s bottom end, including bearings and crankshaft
  • Long life = engine protected for the entire service interval
  • Improved flow = reduced risk of oil starvation enhancing engine protection
Airfilters

Air filters can be compared to the ‘lungs’ of the engine removing dust and dirt in the air stream that can damage the engine and its performance. Operating under immense performance pressure an average vehicle engine breathes in approximately 10,000 litres of air for every litre of fuel consumed. If the air filter is blocked or dirty the filters ability to reduce dirt passing directly into the engine is greatly reduced. The air filter plays the critical role in protecting engine wear which can lead to costly engine replacement.

Ryco air filters are made to with stand the harsh Australian conditions, which are some of the most severe in the world. Across much of Australia dust particles are mostly silica based one of the best abrasives around. Ryco air filters are designed, tested and manufactured to meet or exceed OE requirements and Australian conditions. We recommend that the air filter is serviced as per the manufacturer’s handbook recommendation ensuring your engine has optimal protection.

A superior air filter performing efficiently will:

  • Prevent damage to engine’s top end, providing protection to valves, rings and cylinder bores
  • Long life leads to improved engine performance = superior fuel economy, lower emissions and responsiveness
  • Improved flow = engine breathes properly. Superior power and fuel economy
Fuel

A superior fuel filter performing efficiently will:

  • Prevent clogged, worn and damaged injectors. Helps avoid car breakdown and towing call outs – trouble free motoring
  • Long life = superior, more reliable performance. Superior fuel economy
  • Improved flow = Superior performance. Lower running costs
Cabin Air Filters

The quality of air we breathe is important to our health. The air inside our vehicles has been found to have a much higher concentration of pollutants than in the air just outside the vehicle – up to 10 times in some cases. Sufferers of asthma, allergy and other respiratory problems are especially at risk when concentrations of pollutants are elevated inside the vehicle.

Contaminants in the air such as pollen, fungus spores, dirt and dust pass unfiltered into the passenger cabin, along with the air intake and can trigger asthma,allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and giddiness. Ryco’s Cabin Air Filters, are designed to reduce the amount of harmful contaminants entering into your vehicle via the heating ventilation and air conditioning(HVAC) system, whilst providing a much cleaner breathing environment for you and your passengers.

Cabin air filters should be changed every 15,000kms or at least once a year. When the cabin air filter clogs up with dirt and other contaminants, the air flow entering the vehicle’s interior is significantly reduced. Over time, the clogged filter can lead to musty odours as well as decreasing the HVAC’s performance.
