Almost every recent car model is equipped with an overrunning alternator pulley. That is
why Gates decided to add a line of DriveAlign® overrunning alternator pulleys (OAP) to its range.
Gates now has everything you need to guarantee a fully reliable accessory belt drive system:
from multi-ribbed belts over torsional vibration dampers to expert tools.
- Allows the use of alternators with increased power output.
- Reduces the influence of the alternator mass on the belt drive.
- Decreases wear and tear on all belt drive components.
- Eliminates belt slip and therefore noise.
- Absorbs vibrations and fluctuations.
- Increases the life span of all accessory belt drive components.
