We always use original parts, where possible also NOS (new old stock). Where spare parts are no longer available, we produce small batches of spare parts for your distributor ourselves that meet or exceed the manufacturer's specifications. All our distributors meet the manufacturer's specifications (e.g. map) on acceptance.

Yes, we offer corresponding kits for purchase or are happy to install them during an overhaul.

We offer overhaul kits for popular distributors in our online store.
