Isuzu supports older truck models with clutch kit

Isuzu Australia (IAL) has expanded its Best Value Parts (BVP) clutch kit range to suit a wider variety of transmissions and truck models.

IAL National Parts Manager, John Plunkett, said the decision to expand the BVP clutch kit range would offer more operators greater peace of mind. The Isuzu BVP program is designed for owners of older Isuzu trucks.

“Unlike most replacement parts produced by some aftermarket brands, Isuzu’s BVP clutch kit provides superior performance by creating parts using the same number of components as the original specification,” said Plunkett.

“When developing our expanded range of clutch kits, Isuzu’s Parts Department understood that many operators choosing aftermarket clutch kits were ending up with an inferior product that could create further headaches a little way down the road.

“Isuzu has built a reputation on providing outstanding durability, construction and performance, and Isuzu’s BVP clutch kit is an extension of that ethos,” he said.

IAL has said that its clutch plate structure features 17 components compared to nine in a popular competitor brand. Also, its eight-piece cushion plate design reportedly allows for greater absorption of shock when the transmission and engine are engaging in comparison to many aftermarket product offerings.

“The idling torsion spring in the spline hub is independent of the hub flange, allowing greater absorption of idling vibration,” said IAL. “Rather than using one torsion spring, the Isuzu BVP clutch kit features inner and outer torsion springs, increasing the life of the clutch plate and allowing for smoother clutch engagement.”

The BVP clutch kit also has a dampening bush/cone spring to provide consistent torque, reducing noise and vibration.

“Our clutch kit is just one of the many ways that Isuzu’s BVP system is providing excellent post-sales service to customers,” said Plunkett.
