MAHLE Clevite Inc. has introduced a new free aftermarket ePartsFinder CD that features comprehensive parts information, specifications and photos on the wide range of engine parts in the MAHLE Clevite line for domestic and import vehicles. The ePartsFinder also includes high performance engine parts.
The benefits of using MAHLE Clevite’s eCatalog compared to traditional printed catalogs are portability, access to reference photos, and timely content updates. Automotive machinists, mechanics, engine builders and enthusiasts can obtain a copy of the free ePartsFinder by ordering the CD from MAHLE Clevite’s website: www.mahleclevite.com.
Supplied on a CD-ROM, the ePartsFinder is a handy parts reference tool that features the equivalent of an 8-inch stack of MAHLE Clevite catalogs. Users can load the eCatalog on their computer’s hard drive for fast reference whenever needed. The searchable parts software program is easy to use and allows the user to quickly identify and match MAHLE Clevite aftermarket part numbers to the year, make and model number of their vehicle. MAHLE Clevite’s ePartsFinder also provides reference photos for virtually all engine parts.
The ePartsFinder is electronically updateable, thereby ensuring users that they always have the newest information on MAHLE Clevite products at hand. When the ePartsFinder is installed on the hard drive of a computer that is connected to the Internet, it automatically downloads data and photos of new and revised parts from the MAHLE Clevite website. Such automatic updates typically occur bi-weekly.
Ted Hughes, head of brand development for MAHLE Clevite, says, "With the MAHLE Clevite ePartsFinder, it’s easy to do after-hours parts research without the need to take home a stack of catalogs. Just slip the ePartsFinder CD into your pocket and take it home with you for use on your home computer.
"The product photos that are provided through the ePartsFinder are really helpful, too," says Hughes. "Printed catalogs typically provide specifications and other data for the parts, but don’t include many photos. With the MAHLE Clevite ePartsFinder, you have access to photos for most of the parts featured in the catalog. Once you’ve identified a part number that appears to meet your engine building needs, you can then look at the photo and visually compare it to the part that needs replacing to make sure they match."
MAHLE Clevite’s ePartsFinder is extremely beneficial to engine builders because it offers the most up-to-date parts information available. Hughes explains, saying, "MAHLE Clevite is continually introducing new parts and making design changes to improve upon our existing products. Due to our ongoing design and development activities, MAHLE Clevite’s printed catalogs will necessarily lack the very newest product information because of the time it takes to revise, print and ship the catalogs. But with the MAHLE Clevite ePartsFinder, users can have access to up-to-date information as soon as we issue it, because such product updates are automatically downloaded to the user’s computer."
