|An inferior seized bearing - Caused thousands of pounds worth of damage|
|DO YOU KNOW WHAT BEARINGS YOU ARE BUYING?|
A news media release 24 August 2007 stated "Counterfeiting activities are the highest in passenger vehicles, with 45% of after-sales market captured by Counterfeiters". That is a shocking amount and unfortunately it’s a topic that a car owner would probably not even have thought about.
We have taken steps into permanently etching our Logo, Part number & Batch number onto a visible face of the Hill Tensioner & Clutch bearing and urge you to choose carefully when purchasing any bearing for your Ferrari (Engine, Gearbox or running gear)
All Hill Engineering Clutch & Tensioner bearings now come in security sealed boxes with tamper evident seals. If you are unsure of the origin of your bearings please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting the unique serial number on the packaging of your bearings and we will be able to tell you where these were supplied to.
If you are specifying a Hill Engineering bearing for your service/repair, we suggest asking the shop to return the boxes to you so that you can personally check with us for your own peace of mind
