CRP Automotive added AJUSA to its family of brands in 2011, helping broaden our coverage of “under hood” parts. For example, now when you replace a water pump with a Rein brand part, you can get a gasket from the same trusted source.
Established in 1972, AJUSA is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of gaskets/sets, cylinder head bolt sets, and hydraulic lifters. AJUSA offers comprehensive coverage for European and Asian applications, especially late-model vehicles.
Thanks to an unwavering dedication to quality, AJUSA has been named an OE certified manufacturer. AJUSA is also ISO 9001 and ISO/TS quality certified and ISO 14001 certified as a company that protects and respects the environment.
To help you find the correct part or fluid for a specific application, CRP Automotive products are listed in an online catalog. Subscribers to Activant/Epicor, WHI, and other leading eCat platforms should also be able to find CRP Automotive parts on these e-catalogs.
One of the most critical components of any engine is the head gasket — which seals the cylinder head to the engine block. AJUSA offers excellent coverage for import vehicles, including sets which contain not only the head gasket(s) but all the secondary gaskets, O-rings, plugs, and seals required.
AJUSA offers one of the broadest and deepest head bolt programs on the market. Sets come in specialized protective packaging that ensures bolt thread integrity.
Valve cover gaskets and sets are used to seal the valve cover to the cylinder head. Some vehicles require additional components such as spark plug tube seals or small grommets. AJUSA makes OE-quality gaskets for a growing number of European and Asian applications, plus sets that include all the needed ancillary parts.
Also called cam followers or tappets, hydraulic lifters are used to keep the correct amount of clearance in the valve train of an engine. This ensures that the vehicle’s engine is quiet and operating smoothly. AJUSA has a very robust program of hydraulic lifters, all designed to OE specifications and shipped in plastic trays that keep each hydraulic lifter isolated, oiled, and protected until they are ready to be installed
These gaskets seal components in the intake and exhaust systems of the vehicle, such as the intake manifold, intake plenum, and exhaust manifold to the engine or other components. Like all AJUSA products, these gaskets are OE-quality in fit, form, and even material type. AJUSA offers the most complete coverage for European and Asian vehicles available anywhere
Silicone sealant is used as a “gasket replacement” between two components when there is no gasket called for by the vehicle manufacturer. Quick-curing Ajusil is often used to seal water pumps, oil pumps, oil pans, and valve covers to the engine — and in some cases, transmission pans to the transmission. It is also designed to work in a wide operating range from -76°F (-60°C) to 572°F (300°C) and be resistant to oil, water, antifreeze, gas, and a wide range of greases.
