Rislone liquid copper block seal
Rislone Liquid Copper Block Seal Intake
and Radiator Stop Leak is a one step,
permanent formula that repairs larger
leaks in radiators, intake manifolds and
gaskets, heater cores, blocks, heads and
Unlike other copper stop leak products,
Rislone’s Radiator Stop Leak contains an
antifreeze compatible sodium silicate
formula, making it compatible with all
types of antifreeze or water, so you don’t have to drain your system.
It is designed to be left in your cooling system to fix current leaks, and protect from future leaks.
The product stops leaks by forming a physical plug with organic and synthetic fibers. The plug forms
as the coolant and sealer flow out of the leak and the fibers build on each other, eventually bridging
the entire hole.
The plug is then stabilised with a liquid glass which hardens with increased temperature and
completes the sealing process.
Rislone Liquid Copper Block Seal works in domestic and imported cars.

MRT tuning program for Mazda and Subaru
As one of Australia’s leading performance tuning
outlets, MRT performance continues to support
the trade with tuning products and solutions for
Mazda Mitsubishi and Subaru.
Now with remote tuning ability, the “MRT tuned”
range of supported vehicles allows workshops to
offer local customers a complete tuned solution
for standard and modified vehicles.
“A lot of workshop owners know a factory ECU
tune is available and have customers who want
it done, but either don’t have the time to learn
how to edit files or simply don’t have the time
(or experience) to do it. We now fill that gap”
Owner of MRT Performance, Brett Middleton
From as little as a $100, a workshop owner can
provide a completely tuned factory ECU with
MRT supplied OBD2 specialist cable and local
The OEM ECU is not even touched and is a 100
percent OEM software upgrade. “if you can send
receive e-mails and copy/paste then you can start
immediately,” Mr Middleton said.
With the growing technology race, smart
business operators are getting involved, and
according the MRT, owners can net $500 per
hour using the system.
Adjusting, power and torque is one benefit, but
also debugging and fixing common faults such
as model specific manufacturing bugs is another
benefit available with the tuned kit of upgrades.
A whole range of color documents are also
provided as part of the kit from MRT, including
monthly PR support, website listings and
freebies for customers.
Up to 15 years of models are now supported
from the current WRX right back to MY99, as
well as STi, Forester and Liberty. Turbo diesel
models is also a rapidly growing market and this
includes Triton, Pajero, Challenger, Great Wall

NEW MICRO-V KITS
Kits for European vehicles
available now from Gates
Flawless operation of a car’s accessory
belt drive depends on every component
working as a team.
If any component fails, the entire
system breaks down – resulting in
costly repairs. This is especially
so for European vehicles.
The multi-ribbed belt is an essential
part of the engine. It powers all belt driven
accessories, revolving around the peripheral belt
drive components including the tensioner and idler.
High under-bonnet temperatures, plus constant flexing ultimately take their toll; over time even the
best belt will wear and need replacement.
But the other belt drive components don’t last forever either. Belt tensioners and idler pulleys are wear
parts, not hard parts. The wear of these components affects the belts and subsequently, the complete
So putting a new belt on old peripheral belt drive components is never a good idea. The new belt’s
service life will be greatly reduced in doing so.
The best long-term solution is to replace all wear parts simultaneously.
Gates makes replacement easy with the all new, OE quality Micro-V Kits. The kits include the Micro-
V belt/s, tensioner and idler pulleys needed to overhaul the accessory belt drive system.
The kits are available now for popular applications including European vehicles.
