No More Clearance Problems
Early style starters, aftermarket or OEM, only offered one mounting choice. Later, clockable mounting systems were introduced but still offered limited flexibility in tight situations. Powermaster's new patent-pending Infi-Clock feature gives you the unique ability to infinitely adjust the starter motor for full control over clearance issues. Two simple screws and a tapered locking plate hold the starter in place in any position you choose. Simply loosen the screws, turn the starter into place, and tighten the screws. The tapered plate meshes tight with the block. This Infi-Clock feature will now be found on many Powermaster starters, including Chevy, Ford, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile XS Torque- and Mastertorque-series starters.

Forged Rollers
Weld Wheel Industries introduces the E III Concept wheel for automobiles and luxury SUVs. Available in 20-, 22-, 24-, and 26-inch versions, the new E III Concept is purpose-built in the correct width and offset to fit many hyper-performance cars, luxury sport sedans, and high-end SUVs. The wheel centers are precision hot-forged from a single ingot of 6061 T-6 aerospace alloy, giving them the highest strength-to-weight ratio possible. The rim shells are cold-forged from a proprietary alloy (not spun 5052 aluminum) for superior strength and low weight. They are then precision-welded and chrome-plated for durability, easy care, and a stunningly beautiful appearance. For more information, contact: WELD WHEEL INDUSTRIES

Chassis For Classic Pickups
With an increasing number of enthusiasts wanting to combine the classic styling of '40s, '50s, and '60s pickup trucks with modern drivelines and suspensions, the chassis experts at Art Morrison Enterprises created this new heavy-duty 2x6 main-rail chassis. It has 2x6x0.187-inch wall rectangular tube main rails, which merge with husky 2x 4-inch front and rear subframes to provide an ultra-stiff backbone and the perfect foundation for any classic truck project. The chassis are individually CAD-engineered for the specific year, make, and model truck-plus designed to provide the builder's desired ride height and stance. There's a choice of a C5 Corvette (on some applications), Morrison IFS or air spring front suspensions, with options of a triangulated four-bar, four-bar, or air spring setups in the rear. A special through-frame passage (for 2-1/2-inch or 3-inch exhaust) allows the vehicle to be lower, while maintaining ample ground clearance. The frame is precision mandrel-formed and fixture-welded by Morrison's experienced technicians to ensure proper suspension alignment. This engineered chassis will provide vastly improved handling over the original, as well as have excellent traction. It can be used on either unibody or full-framed vehicles. Steering is handled by either a 15:1 or 20:1 AGR power rack. For more information, contact: ART MORRISON ENTERPRISES

Mobile Air
Advanced Air Systems designed the original CO2 on-board air system back in 1997 for a fast, simple, and affordable tire-inflation system. The company now has three distinct air systems in multiple variations to fit any need. Called the Power Tank RV-Series, the Power Tank Sport-Series, and the original Power Tank Comp-Series, they all feature the company's proprietary SuperFlow regulators, designed to provide super high-flow rates of CO2 vapor without freeze clogging, the number one problem with other high-pressure regulators. This system can also be used in an emergency, if your airbagged truck loses the compressor and you can't air up. If you want to air up tires on your truck or simply run some air tools without a compressor, this is the hot ticket for you. For more information, contact: ADVANCED AIR SYSTEMS INC.
