Dayco supplies aftermarket water pumps for DAF engines07 September 2020

Engine products and drive systems supplier Dayco has introduced six water pumps – produced and supplied to Dayco by the OE pump manufacturer – for the 10.8 and 12.9-litre, MX-11 and MX-13 engines used in a number of popular DAF applications.

These OE water pumps, which Dayco identifies with the part number prefix DP, cater for two MX-11 (DP1979 and DP1980) and four MX-13 (DP1975/6/7/8) applications and are supplied with or without speed sensor, in line with the original specification stipulated by DAF.

Dayco’s national sales manager, Steve Carolan says: “By providing the OE water pump for these popular vehicles we can supplement our existing, premium quality range, and give commercial vehicle workshops and fleet managers the tools they need to compete with the vehicle manufacturer’s dealer networks.

“In the same way that Euro 6 has for the passenger car/light commercial sector, Euro VI engine legislation has been an important landmark in the battle to reduce emissions from HD vehicles. However, the only way to ensure that the gains made by these original design solutions are maintained over the life of the vehicle, is to install OE and OE quality replacement parts when they are serviced in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s schedule.

“These OE water pumps and the existing poly-v belts, tensioners and idlers in the Dayco aftermarket range, allow technicians in the independent sector to maintain this standard and ensure these vehicles not only remain reliable for their owners and their customers, but also operating within their intended design criteria.”

In addition, the supplier has launched 16 auxiliary belt kits covering various MAN, Mercedes, Scania and Volvo applications. Alongside the belt, they contain all the rigid components (tensioners and idlers) necessary to successfully complete a full system replacement. The supplier states that these have been manufactured to vehicle manufacturer specific specifications, so independent garages will have access to an OE quality solution that is designed to precise standards, in terms of both its dimensions and construction, to the original article.
