Turn 14 Distribution Adds Clevite Engine Bearings

Dec 7, 2016

Turn 14 Distribution has added Clevite’s extensive engine product catalog to its merchandise assortment. Clevite has long history within the racing community as a leader in engine bearing technology.

“Turn 14 Distribution and Clevite engine bearings offer a complementary fit. Our customers will appreciate the company’s commitment to quality and performance across their entire catalog. We’re proud to offer their products to our customers,” said Kyle Shelley, Turn 14 Distribution’s director of sales.

Clevite’s history within the racing community for quality and performance began with its association with NASCAR. Clevite is the exclusive bearing of NASCAR Performance, and the company has been winning NASCAR-sanctioned races since 1948.

Clevite also claims roots in Indy Car, ARCA, NHRA, and IHRA racing, as well as numerous other forms of motorsports. The research and development advancements realized by the inclusion in such widely-varied disciplines help to set the company’s products apart from the competition, according to Turn 14 Distribution.

The majority of Clevite performance engine bearings utilize a superior TriMetalTM design, which offer a degree of conformability, embedability, slipperiness and fatigue resistance, not found in many original equipment and competitive bi-metal bearings, according to the company.

The exclusive Clevite TriArmor engine bearings feature the engine moly/graphite treatment, according to the company. This sophisticated blend, in a low friction PTFE polymer base, offers extraordinary protection and lubricity.
