Hell’s Gate Hot Rods' Lug Pattern Drill Guide
1. Lug Pattern Drill Guide
Hell’s Gate Hot Rods makes it easy to change your wheel lug pattern with their Drill Guides. The drill guide, or “jig,” is a nifty tool that you can use to re-drill axles and drums to be able to use a different lug pattern without having to remove the axles from the vehicle or take the wheels down to a machine shop to get re-drilled to the desired pattern. The drill guides are made of steel for strength and durability and can be used many times over. The drill guides come in 13 different lug patterns, giving you a wide variety of options so you can fit the wheel of your choice.

OE Rallye wheel rim
2. New OE Rallye Wheels for Classic Chevrolet and GMC Pickups

The five-lug wheel offers direct fitment on any Chevrolet or GMC ½-ton 1971-1998 two-wheel-drive truck.

Duralast Elite Brake Pads
3. Duralast Elite Brake Pads
The Elite Brake Pad series from Duralast delivers impressive braking performance combined with a revolutionary technology and ceramic formulation to increase the life of the rotor and the pads while eliminating noise. The Elite series features a patent-pending hexagonal coating that is application-specific and transferred to the rotor surface during the bed-in process. This transfer layer fills the microscopic gaps within the rotor to produce consistent stopping action while increasing the life of the pads and rotors. The ceramic friction material formula is copper-free and produces less dust along with quiet operation. In fact, Duralast has a noise-free guarantee on their Elite Brake Pads! The pads are formed with an OEM-style slot and chamfer for an enhanced OE fit, form, and function.

Bowler Performance Transmissions announces the release of their new hydraulic clutch pedal conversion for the 1973-1987 Chevrolet/GMC trucks. This new conversion kit allows anyone with an automatic transmission pedal assembly to easily add a clutch pedal for a manual transmission conversion.

The add-on bracket is designed for a weld-on attachment but can also be bolted in place, if welding is not an option. There is also a built-in provision for the addition of a clutch safety switch (not included) if desired for applications not able to utilize a neutral safety switch on the transmission being used. The complete pedal conversion includes new clutch pedal, pedal attachment bracket, new brake pedal pad, two rubber pedal pads, and all necessary hardware. Bowler Performance Transmissions also sells an add-on hydraulic master cylinder kit for this conversion kit to allow connection to any hydraulic release bearing.
