Aisin World OEM Replacement Parts Now Available at Summit Racing

No matter if your vehicle has an American, Japanese, Korean, or European nameplate on it, chances are darn good it has parts made by Aisin Seiki. The company has been an OEM supplier for Toyota since 1965, and today supplies parts to automakers around the globe.

Now you can get those same OE-quality parts to fix your car, truck, or SUV at Summit Racing. We carry Aisin World aftermarket replacement parts for modern vehicles, and for vintage Japanese vehicles as far back as the 1960s. Take a look at these:

Timing Belt and Water Pump Kits
When it’s time to change the timing belt, it’s a good idea to change the water pump too since you’re already in there. Aisin is the world’s largest supplier of water pumps, and that experience shows in its timing belt and water pump kits. They include the belt, water pump, and gaskets, plus a new housing, hydraulic tensioner, and idler pulley as needed. The kits are available for Toyota, Honda/Acura, Subaru, Lexus, Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi and Volvo vehicles.

Clutch Kits for Toyota, Scion, and Lexus
Unlike some no-name clutch kits, Aisin clutch kits give you OEM fit, durability and pedal feel—no guessing, no surprises. The kits include the clutch cover and disc, release bearing, pilot bearing (where applicable), and a vehicle-specific alignment tool for trouble-free installation.
Features include:
• Higher load capacity
• Heat-resistant, less abrasive facings ensure extended service life
• Disc spring design enhances engagement and release
• Floating rubber cushion or twin-hub design improves rigidity to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness

Throttle Bodies for Toyota, Scion, and Lexus
After you’ve racked up the miles and you find power and fuel mileage isn’t what it used to be, you might need a new throttle body. Aisin throttle bodies are manufactured to original equipment specifications, and are ready to install out of the box. A throttle position sensor is included.

Ride Height Sensors
Keep things on the level with new Aisin ride height sensors. The sensor assemblies maintain correct headlight alignment and suspension height and come with the sensor and linkage arm. The ride height sensors are available for Toyota, Lexus, Subaru, Honda/Acura, Mitsubishi, and Mazda vehicles.

Summit Racing also offers Aisin World cam timing gears, fan clutches, door lock actuators—even electric water pumps for Toyota and Lexus hybrid vehicles.

Project Car Update: Cool Hand Customs 1940 Dodge Pickup

In this episode of Project Car Update, we’re visiting our old friends at Cool Hand Customs. The Wisconsin-based team of EJ and Amy Fitzgerald has been building hot rods, customs, and motorcycles for years, but really made the scene with the 1955 Dodge pickup they debuted at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. That project mated a pile of Dodge parts with the complete suspension setup out of a C4 Corvette. The result was a sweet little Hot Rod Orange autocross bomber that EJ put through its paces at the Optima Challenge event held after the show. Learn more about the Dodge at these links:

RacingJunk.com Story: https://www.racingjunk.com/news/2017/12/12/cool-hand-customs-55-dodge-pickup/#Cool-Hand-Custom-s--55-Dodge-Pickup-5-slide-18

EJ and Amy are dipping into the Dodge bin for their latest build, a 1940 pickup. Amy acquired the truck years ago, and when a friend offered her a 440 big block out of an old motor home, the project’s pieces fell into place. So did the name—Project 40-440.

EJ is quite the metal bender, so he designed and fabricated a custom frame for the Dodge. EJ and Amy elected to stay all-Mopar by using a QA1 torsion bar front suspension kit for an E-body Challenger. Using a torsion-bar front clip from a 1970s-era Dodge Aspen or Plymouth Volare was a bit of thing for car builders back in the day, but Cool Hand’s is the first truck project we’ve seen with an aftermarket torsion bar system.

Out back is a Mopar 8 3/4 rear axle with 3.55 gears and a Trutrac differential. It’s suspended by a RideTech four-link with QA1 coil-overs. Brakes are Classic Performance front discs and an SSBC rear disc conversion. Steering is via a Unisteer rack and pinion attached to a Classic Performance steering column.

The old motorhome 440 got a short block rebuild with a Federal Mogul engine kit and an Eagle forged crankshaft. Trick Flow supplied one of its PowerPort® big block Mopar top end kits, crowned with am 850 cfm Holley Ultra Double Pumper carburetor. The 440 is backed by a B&M Torqueflite 727 with a 3,000 RPM stall converter.

Once EJ and Amy have finished massaging the Dodge’s sheetmetal back to life, they’ll paint it satin white with green and black accents. Then it’s off to the SEMA Show where 40-440 will be on display at the E3 Spark Plugs booth. The build will be covered from soup to nuts in upcoming articles on Power Automedia’s Rod Authority website: https://www.rodauthority.com/news/e3-spark-plugs-1940-dodge-restomod-truck-by-cool-hand-customs/.

This is what EJ and Amy Fitzgerald from Cool Hand Customs started with. While the Dodge looks like it’s held together with Scotch tape and prayer, the sheetmetal was fairly rust-free. The chassis and drivetrain didn’t matter as both would be replaced.

Photo 2 (1940 Dodge Interior.jpg)
Once you get past the plastic tablecloth door panel, the transmission, and the tub o’ parts, you can see how solid the cab is.

Photo 3 (1940 Dodge Engine Removal.jpg)
There is a right way, the wrong way, and the Wisconsin way to get a big block 440 out of a motorhome. Guess which one this is.

Photo 4 (1940 Dodge Front Clip.jpg)
EJ and Amy decided to make their own frame out of 2 x 4 inch rectangular tubing. They also bent a radiator/grille support with down bars that run back to the cab for added stiffness. EJ and Amy stayed true to the Mopar theme by using a QA1 torsion bar front suspension kit for a E-body Challenger/Barracuda, adding a Unisteer rack and pinion setup and a set of Classic Performance disc brakes.

Photo 5 (1940 Dodge Fuel Tank.jpg)
Here you can see the 3.55-geared Mopar 8.75 inch rear axle suspended by a RideTech universal four-link with QA1 coil-overs. The Rhodes Race Cars 20 gallon fuel tank is designed for a 1963-72 Chevy pickup, but works just fine here.

Photo 6 (1940 Dodge Grille.jpg)
It took a lot of metalwork to get the Dodge’s grille to look and fit like this. Now you can see why the front radiator support we showed you earlier is so darn tall. The front fenders are fiberglass pieces from Dodge Central of Michigan (DCM) which carries tons of reproduction parts for Dodge trucks through 1971: https://dcmclassics.com/

The freshly rebuilt 440 gets lowered into the Dodge. The short block was rebuilt with a Federal Mogul engine kit and an Eagle forged crankshaft. Trick Flow supplied one of its PowerPort® big block Mopar top end kits, crowned with a 850 cfm Holley Ultra Double Pumper carburetor. The 440 is backed by a B&M Street Fighter Torqueflite 727 with a 3,000 RPM stall converter.
