Aluminum Dual-Piston Calipers
Add some flash behind your wheels with these aluminum, dual-piston calipers from Performance Online Inc. As part of POI's Power Regulator Series, these calipers are designed to replace the D52-style caliper found on '71-87 trucks (and many disc brake conversion packages). Constructed from aluminum for lighter weight and quicker heat dissipation, they also have a redesigned construction for greater strength. The unique bore design for the twin 47mm pistons and central inlet port provides balanced fluid distribution and even pad wear. The calipers come pre-loaded with semi-metallic D52 pads.

High-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple announces its development of a new Ultra-Performance Grease (UPG). UPG is a high-performance, multi-service, aluminum-complex synthetic grease, which claims to significantly increase bearing life; bearings will run smoother, cooler, and quieter. In addition to bearings, the UPG fits the lubrication needs for U-joints and general purpose uses. It has outstanding extreme-pressure capabilities and excellent water resistance to both emulsion and washout. UPG is stable at high temperatures and has excellent oxidation resistance for extended service life. Available in standard 14-ounce grease tubes.

If you only need a heater, Vintage Air now offers a new heater unit with the same precise servo-controls as their famous Gen-II A/C systems. Three electronic switches control the servo-actuated water valve, the blend-air door for floor and defrost flow, and the fan speed. The Gen-II features a powerful fan motor and a high-capacity blower fan. The ultra-compact dimensions make fitment behind cramped dashes easy.

The new Realtree design camouflage pattern on Miller Electrics' Arc Armor auto-darkening welding helmet is sure to appeal the outdoor and hunting enthusiast. It features three arc sensors, a quick-release front cover lens holder with a rubber spatter gasket, and lens controls conveniently located at the bottom of the lens. These helmets also include Miller's Auto-On and Grind Mode features. Auto-On eliminates accidental arc flash by automatically detecting the arc even if the helmet hasn't been used for an extended amount of time. Grind Mode allows the helmet to be used as a protective shield by preventing the lens from darkening while grinding.

Taking an engine from here and a radiator from there and trying to find premolded hoses to mate them together can be an exercise in futility. Unicoil, a universal alternative to premolded or custom hoses, allows you to bend straight hoses into most any shape. Simply slide it over a hose to wherever a bend is needed (and with only hand pressure) and shape as required-up to 90 degrees without kinking. The Unicoil is made of stainless steel to ensure reliability even under the harshest conditions. Products range in size from 0.25- to 1-inch in diameter and work with most standard hoses, including water, air, emissions, and oil.
