Dayco ela™ belts, also known as “stretch” belts, are specifically designed for 2 to 4 point drives that do not require tensioning. Although these belts may look like standard poly rib belts, they are very different. These specially designed belts have self-tensioning capabilities required by specific original equipment (OE) drives designed for a “stretch” belt. Vehicles that are manufactured with “stretch” belts must replace those belts with “stretch” belts. These belts are not interchangeable with standard constructed belts of the same size.
Dayco ela™ belts utilize a proprietary EPDM construction that is designed to elongate over the fixed pulley system, and then maintain the required belt tension over the life of the belt. The backbone behind the Dayco ela™ belt is its specially developed polyamide tensile member, which allows for high elongation required for installation, yet provides the proper tension maintenance properties to transmit the accessory loads demanded for the drive. This belt construction incorporates a wear resistant EPDM rib material, along with a highly elastic EPDM cushion rubber that surrounds the polyamide tensile cord, thus providing the required adhesion and flexibility to maintain lasting performance.
“Stretch” belts have unique installation instructions depending on the OE application. Installation may require a specialized tool for the application or a simple zip tie. Do not attempt to install by prying the belt on the pulleys. Dayco provides detailed instructions on the reverse side of the sleeve.
It is estimated that nearly one-third, or about 70 million, vehicles currently on the road utilize a timing belt. Without proper maintenance and replacement, the timing belt can break, resulting in costly repairs. Manufactured with tough, wear-resistant fabric, high tensile strength cord and molded tooth surface, the Dayco timing belt provides consistent slip-proof power transfer and high resistance to oil and engine heat.
Dayco is recognized by the automotive industry as a world leader in the manufacture of timing belts. The Dayco timing belt, designed for OHC and DOHC type engines, features a molded cog design which runs quieter and is more economical. Dayco premium, high modulus glass fiber cord delivers precise length stability to keep the engine running smoothly over the life of the belt.
The belt’s compounding and tooth configurations are designed for specific applications ranging from normal service to high performance, high temperature engines, where HSN compound is used. The part number includes three final digits that conform to industry standard numbering.
Dayco timing belts meet all original equipment manufacturer performance requirements.
Designed for efficient power transmission to the vehicle accessory, Dayco has combined raw-edge construction with Dayco’s patented top cogged design to ensure the top performance on vehicles and drives that still utilize V-belts. The Dayco Top Cog V-Belt delivers more flexibility and increases airflow around the belt so it runs cooler and lasts longer than most competitive belts. Three plies of neoprene impregnated fabric resist heat, oil and grease while a specially-formulated treatment of the polyester cord provides the strength, stability and reliability that are required from one of the most innovative, top-performing V- belts for nearly 30 years.
Dayco approaches the market differently from most of its competition, believing that one serpentine belt construction will not perform best with all applications.

Also known as a hydraulic tensioner, the Dayco Hydraulic Timing Belt Actuator is designed to absorb changes in the loss of timing belt tension.
A loss in timing belt tension may be caused by variations in engine temperatures, speed or general wear and aging of the belt. The Dayco Hydraulic Timing Belt Actuator maintains constant tension on the timing belt during crankshaft revolution which reduces noise, prevents belt flapping and ensures proper transmission efficiency throughout the entire service life of the belt.

Over-driving balancers are a high performance alternative. Changing the balancer diameter can alter the performance of the accessories and engine rev speeds. Using the same material and extreme pressure-bonded process as PowerBond™ SFI race series harmonic balancers, PowerBond can also increase your vehicle’s horsepower output with Dayco overdrive harmonic balancers. PowerBond overdriving harmonic balancers increase the diameter of the pulley, which increases the speed of the supercharger leading to increased boost. These help reduce the need to lower the diameter of the blower pulley resulting in less belt wrap.
PowerBond™ standard replacement harmonic balancers offer the professional engine rebuilder or shade tree mechanic the highest quality product in the automotive aftermarket. PowerBond balancers use a SG (Spheroidal Graphite) iron casting which is considered near-steel strength material. PowerBond balancers use both inserted and pressure-bonded rubber that produces rubber strength that is three times greater than stock. PowerBond standard replacement harmonic balancers are available for most popular passenger cars, light commercial and four-wheel drive applications.
The PowerBond™ street series product line brings bonded balancer technology within the budget of every performance street engine builder. PowerBond street balancers are also perfect for limited spec race classes, such as late model stock that require an OEM style balancer. The bonded dampening rubber in every PowerBond street series balancer eliminates spinning and component separation giving reliable performance in engines used up to 6,500 RPM. PowerBond street series balancers use high strength SG (Spheroidal Graphite) iron rings and hubs that are pressure-bonded. PowerBond uses Dayco Race Series high pressure, low cure that features a natural rubber developed in Dayco laboratory. All PowerBond street series balancers feature an etched black primer with a two coat clear coat and fully etched laser timing marks.
The PowerBond™ race series brings the advantages of bonded balancers to high revving and high horsepower street/race applications where an SFI approved balancer is required. PowerBond Race Series balancers have been tested beyond 21,000 RPM without failure.
Every PowerBond race series balancer features a precision CNC machined AISI 1045 forged steel hub bonded to an equally strong steel inertia ring. Advanced design mean that race series balancers are very light for an all steel product. In most cases they are only marginally heavier than the original cast iron balancer and generally much lighter than other all steel balancers on the market. The steel inertia ring on the race series models is positively protected against forward and backward movement. PowerBond uses Dayco Race Series high pressure, low cure that features a natural rubber developed in Dayco laboratory.
Every model has easy to read computer etched timing marks. All PowerBond race series balancers meet SFI specification 18.1.
PowerBond™ has developed the economical Claimer series style balancer. Using pressure bonding technology, the PowerBond Claimer series has three times the push-apart strength of traditional inserted OEM balancers for the best possible resistance to inertia ring spinning and dislocation. Claimer Series products are designed for use on “Claimer” engines in Modified stock car racing. PowerBond Claimer balancers also use SG (Spheroidal Graphite) iron ring and hub for maximum strength and crack resistance. Each Claimer Series harmonic balancer comes with easyto- read laser etched 360 degree timing marks.
Designed for high performance supercharged engines
Under-driving balancers are a high performance alternative. Changing the balancer diameter can alter the performance of the accessories and engine rev speeds. Using the same material and extreme pressurebonded process as PowerBond™ SFI race series harmonic balancers, PowerBond can also increase your vehicle’s horsepower output with Dayco underdrive harmonic balancers. PowerBond race series underdrive harmonic balancers help reduce the parasitic power loss caused by the front drive accessories. Underdriving also helps prevent over-revving alternators.
