Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, has announced the availability of serpentine belt kits in North America, marketed and sold as Dayco Demanding Drive Kits.

Designed for the replacement of worn or damaged serpentine belts, tensioners and pulleys, Dayco says its new Dayco Demanding Drive Kits are a convenient solution when replacing all of the major components in the accessory drive system.
