Developed by Roush Yates for its 358ci (NASCAR, ARCA, Craftsman Truck Series) and 436ci (WSORR and TORC off-road series) engines, its new cog-belt system is a precise link between camshaft and crankshaft, tough enough to endure 24-hour races, like Daytona and Le Mans or a full season of circle track competition. Further, the system enhances any engine based on the Ford Windsor cylinder block. Besides producing less friction and being more durable than gear or chain drives, the Roush Yates system offers race and high-performance street engines a number of advantages, including the facility for external accessibility and adjustability of the timing gear itself, which can be advanced or retarded (up to 25 degrees overall) during dyno testing and tuning, with no need to remove the front cover of the engine or drain the coolant system. Compatible with dry and wet sump oiling systems and with a billet aluminum upper pulley and heat-treated steel lower, the belt drive assembly eliminates harmonics to guard against valvetrain instability.

Dale Adams Enterprises, the manufacturer of the famous Bone line of creepers, has introduced the Tail Bone, a mechanic's stool that is different by design. It features the same big 5-inch-diameter wheels as used on the Bone creepers, for the same reason ... big wheels roll effortlessly over air hoses, drop cords, and rough surfaces. Three wheels mean the base is a tripod, a naturally stable work platform on uneven surfaces. Rather than a swiveling seat, the base turns easily and naturally with the user so its legs always stay out of the way. The bucket seat makes it easy to use your natural body movements and trunk strength to position yourself and the stool to do the job. The 13 1/2-inch seat height is similar to most workshop rolling stools, while the smooth, impact-resistant polymer material is impervious to oil, cleaners, and common solvents, and easy to clean.
