The new Gates Drive Systems Catalogue for passenger cars and light-duty commercial vehicles (Ref. E/70107) offers application data about virtually every car on the road after 1990.   Data about synchronous and accessory belt drive systems are classified in different ways, to allow any user to determine quickly the product he needs.  The catalogue includes an alphabetical listing by vehicle make, size listings, a list of kit components, a chapter illustrating belt routing diagrams for accessory belt drives, a manufacturers’ part number listing and a list of cancelled or replaced products.  

New to the catalogue is the listing of DriveAlign® tensioners in its application, OE (manufacturers’ part numbers), illustration and kit component chapters, which explains the change of name from the previous “Belt and Kit Catalogue” to “Drive Systems Catalogue”.  The catalogue has also been extended to contain, for the first time, information and illustrations about belt routing diagrams for Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts.
