Clutch release bearings are axial ball bearings, developed to control component misalignment related to certain clutch conditions. Their design can vary from one model to the other and some of them are easily separable due to special mounting characteristics. PFI clutch release bearings are available for most American, European, Japanese and Korean passenger cars. We also offer clutch release bearings for selected heavy-duty truck, bus and tractor applications. Our clutch release part numbers begin with the PCR prefix.
PFI needle bearings are designed for maximum load capacity with the smallest possible cross-sectional area. They are used in starters and alternators. We make our needle bearings with special Grade 2 rollers to ensure low noise operation. Our needle roller bearings usually start with the NB prefix.
PFI tensioner and idler bearings are single row radial ball bearings made with heat stabilized rings and special greases, in order to improve resistance to the high temperature present in passenger car engine compartments. The function of these bearings is to provide belt with tension while transferring drive force from crankshaft, preventing belt slippage. Our tensioner and idler bearings begin with the PTI prefix.
