Clevite Engine Parts is making it easier for gearheads of all kinds to share ideas and parts with the launch of Gearhead Gab.

Gearhead Gab is designed to bring the together a community of engine builders, rebuilders, machinists, students and enthusiasts to discuss industry issues, exchange information and swap parts. This online forum is available by visiting www.motorheadheaven.com and clicking on the link for Gearhead Gab.

“Gearhead Gab was created in the same spirit as the Clevite Engine Builder Club — as an industry-wide resource, not just a Clevite resource,” said Ted Hughes, light vehicle brand manager for Clevite Engine Parts. “Our mission behind this was to create a communication tool for all people in the industry — builders, machinists, students — who need information and a way to get it fast and easy.”

The focal point of Gearhead Gab is a series of forums that center on a variety of topics, including technical information, a parts swap and all types of racing. Gearhead Gab even features an off-topic forum dedicated to providing an opportunity for users to ask questions and receive answers on more general topics and even post and view jokes.

Before formally launching Gearhead Gab, Clevite asked some well-known industry friends to give it a test drive and the response has been encouraging.

“The topics and forums that Clevite has included within Gearhead Gab are right on target,” said Joe London, engine builder for Dale Earnhardt, Inc. and Clevite Engine Builder of the Year for the Busch Series for 2004 and 2005. “Gearhead Gab is a great place to get information on parts, industry issues and my favorite topic – racing.”

Josh Garbert, national automotive aftermarket director for Universal Technical Institute, said “Clevite’s Gearhead Gab is a great way for students to build their connection within the engine rebuilding and machining industry. Our students and staff are already participating in the forums and look forward to building knowledge and relationships with other industry members.

“Gearhead Gab has shown a great deal of potential in the engine building and machining industries,” said Doug Kaufman, editor of Engine Builder magazine. “The forum, parts swap and racing information is right up our readers’ alleys.”
