Ken Hooper of Blue Mound, Illinois, recently purchased a project vehicle. It's a stretched Jeep body on a 1980 K20 4x4 chassis. Ken said, "this vehicle has been driven on the road for many years, but it's also been a very dependable mud truck and still runs and drives great." Currently, the vehicle is undergoing an overhaul, the engine and transmission are still in great working order and will not be replaced. JASPER's technical support helped determine that the vehicle's transmission is a Turbo 400, remanufactured by Jasper Engines & Transmissions back in 1989. Ken said, "this transmission has lasted for many years longer than the original. Thank you, JASPER."

Chris Rhinehart, an event participant, from Frederick Maryland, experienced engine trouble near Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rather than have his Nova towed all the way back home, Chris decided to have it towed to the Ridetech facility and purchase a JASPER engine. Chris contacted Jasper Engines & Transmissions and spoke with veteran Authentic/Performance Sales Rep. Larry Salmon, who discussed Chris' options and arranged the delivery of a JASPER Class-1 Chevrolet 350 engine on Friday.
Saturday morning at 7AM, Chris and three of his buddies began the engine exchange and and by two o'clock in the afternoon the Nova was purring and as good as new. Chris ended his weekend on a happy note with a smooth 800 mile cruise back to Maryland. We would like to thank Chris for his engine purchase and hope he enjoys his JASPER-Powered Nova at many more autocross events!

Picture taken at the 2010 Syracuse Nationals. My, how time flies. I came across this image this morning as I was browsing through our graphics archive. Back in 2010, I had the opportunity to transport our Rolling Showcase and represent JASPER at the Syracuse Nationals, which spans across the New York State Fairgrounds annually. I can’t believe that was five years ago. I’m not sure if our concept of time is perceived at an accelerated rate as we age, or if it’s just the fact that new technology promotes shortened attention spans compounded by our heightened ability to multitask.

Obviously, the dirtier your fuel system is, the bigger the improvement you will see in performance and fuel economy after a fuel system cleaning. But it is important not to wait until your system is running poorly. If you do, by the time you get a cleaning, you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars in gas or even possibly damaged your fuel injectors and catalytic converter.
The interval for the tire rotation could depend on a recommendation from either the tire manufacturer or the vehicle maker. The interval is typically around 5,000 miles but could range from 3,000 to 8,000 miles. So back to the real question: why do tires need to be rotated?
Uncomfortable temperatures seem to be magnified when you're behind a wheel, but maintaining functional and efficient AC and heat systems in your vehicle can make the difference between a fun and relaxed road trip and a torturous journey.

Imagine you pour a tablespoon of water into your hand and throw it as far as you can. Now suppose you suck up a tablespoon of water with a syringe, push the plunger and squirt it out. Which would go farther?
Huge advances in automotive technology have led to the development of high-tech fluids to keep pace. A simple example of this is the cooling system. For decades it was primarily made out of iron, steel and rubber hoses. At the time, there was only one kind of coolant available to protect these components from corrosion.

The logistics of getting out to California were challenging for many of my fellow pros, so I hired someone to bring my rig out west. That would give me more time at home, where our new house project is still underway, and it meant that I could fly out and spend some time with Jasper Engines and Transmissions clients before the practice period started. I met up with some great guys at Lake Berryessa and we enjoyed a couple of fantastic days on the water, which got me in a good frame of mind.

Canada Post refurbished 876 LLVs at their Mississauga, Ontario, facility. Each LLV received a JASPER remanufactured GM 2.2L four-cylinder engine. They also received new brake lines and additional LLV components supplied by Jasper Innovative Solutions.
We walked in off the street for a tour of Jasper Engines & Transmissions and thought it was great. Bob gave us a private tour almost immediately and was very knowledgeable about what was happening across the whole business. He showed us the co-generation aspect of the place, which was pretty neat. They produce and use their own electricity, compressed air, and heat from the engine exhaust. He didn't hesitate to show us the sections where they deal with issues, try to learn why a problem exists, and figure out how they can keep it from happening again. It's obvious throughout the factory that they care about quality and improving. It was interesting to see how they use their team cells to do their work. You can see that nothing goes to waste throughout, they even use ground up bottle caps to bead blast parts. We spent almost 2 hours there and enjoyed every moment of our tour. - Thank you from Margaret of Norristown PA

JASPER Engine sponsored professional fisherman Chad Morgenthaler on modifying the Lunker Lure Gillraker. In the fall, just as many bass can be found shallow as deep. They relate to different types of structure, but they have the same thing in mind – feed up for the winter months. Unfortunately, fishing the umbrella rig in and around shallow water structure can create a lot of difficulties and frustration, which has brought about the need for serious bait modification.

A tremendous amount of rain can result in extremely high water conditions in our lakes and rivers. The situation of rising and falling waters can create unique fishing challenges for anglers. The newly submerged foliage is a bait fish magnate, especially for crawdads. Bait fish love the nutrients and the protection that it provides. They will locate and live in these areas as long as the water stays high, which means the bass will follow. Make sure to locate and target areas of submerged new growth and cover.

With consecutive good tournaments in Alabama, I wanted to keep the momentum going in Georgia as I embarked on my first Elite Series season. I’ve made a vow to take things back to basics, quit trying to confuse myself, and fish the way I like to fish, and so far it has been working. I’m making really good decisions on the water.
Heading into the Elite Series opener on Lake Seminole, I was watching the weather and the moon phase carefully and expected that sight fishing would play a major role in many competitors’ plans. As so often happens, a cold front disrupted the move to the shallows and in many respects that played right into my hands. Seminole is a great fishery, but the weather was changing every day. As a result, the fish were moving too much for the weights to be really high across the board.
Jasper Engines & Transmissions, the nation’s leader in remanufactured drivetrain products, is expanding its line of remanufactured Borg Warner, Garrett and Holset turbochargers. JASPER has over 100 different stock numbers on hand, including turbos for popular diesel units such as the Ford/International 6.0L, 7.3L Powerstroke, Cummins ISB and Caterpillar engines.

One of the primary issues with Ford’s 4.6L/5.4L 3-valve VVT engine surrounds its Variable Valve Timing system, and the lack of oil pressure which can touch off an engine code. Since the VVT is driven by oil pressure, any decrease in oil pressure, provided by the engine, can result in a failure.

Cold Weather, Hot Fishing Winter is typically the time of year when most anglers put their boats in storage, stow away their tackle, and wait until springtime temperatures call them back to the lake. Dedicated diehard anglers already know that not only do the winter months offer great fishing, but there’s also very little boat traffic as well.
There are several lakes in Southern Illinois that I really like to fish during the dead of winter. These lakes have one common factor, they are power plant lakes. The power plant provides the lake with a warm water discharge keeping at least the upper part of the lake from freezing. Although the lake isn’t frozen, anglers do have to watch out for varying water temperatures. I’ve found there is a tremendous difference in water temperature from one area of the lake to the next.

Jasper Engines and Transmissions Pro Angler, Chad Morgenthaler, almost passed up his opportunity for a “Golden Ticket” to fish the 2014 Bassmaster Classic. He debated the merits of fishing the Bassmaster Classic Wild Card on Lake Okeechobee in Florida, until he finally decided to make the commitment with one day to spare. Good thing. Chad won the tournament with 15 fish and a total of 63 pounds, 13 ounces. This was Chad’s first win on the Bassmaster Tournament Trail and it also secured his opportunity to fish in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, his fourth Classic.

JASPER Certified Components, where we take used parts and make them as good as new again! JASPER Certified Components, JCC, provides quality parts for the re-manufacturing industry. We carry all styles of parts for gas engines, diesel engines, and transmissions. Originally formed to provide parts to stand up to JASPER Engines and Transmissions rigorous quality standards, we are now also selling our products outside of JASPER. We specialize in qualified reclaimed products, new overstock parts, and core for re-manufacturing.
Did you know that Remanufacturing is Recycling?
Have you considered how your decision to make a major repair to your vehicle affects our environment? We have researched how much energy JASPER utilizes in the remanufacturing process and compared it with information from the Argonne National Lab, a research center for the U.S. Department of Energy. By averaging the curb weight of three vehicles: a Mercedes-Benz W126, a Hummer H2 and a Toyota Prius, a determination was made on the average amount of energy required in manufacturing vehicles. Energy usage at JASPER, per drivetrain component, was figured and, on the average, only 1% of the energy is consumed in remanufacturing a drivetrain component in comparison to manufacturing the entire vehicle. In tangible terms, that is an energy savings of nearly six tons of coal or 1008 gallons of crude oil. Rather than replacing their vehicles, our customers, by purchasing JASPER remanufactured engines, transmissions, and differentials saved enough energy in 2007 to power an estimated 598,000 households, or every residence in a city the size of Washington, D.C., for an entire year!
It was a strong showing for JASPER Race Products, with five drivers finishing in the top ten at Dover International Speedway in Sunday’s FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks.

USED ENGINES, TRANSMISSIONS AND DIFFERENTIALS
Used components are pulled directly from a vehicle – typically a junkyard vehicle – and generally not even so much as surface cleaned. There are no provisions for disassembly, internal cleaning or inspection with a used component. Used or junkyard components may have high mileage and a poor maintenance history – a failure waiting to happen. Many used or junkyard components come from a vehicle that was involved in an accident and may have unseen damage.
REBUILT ENGINES, TRANSMISSIONS AND DIFFERENTIALS
To rebuild is to recondition by cleaning, inspecting and replacing severely worn or broken parts. Serviceable parts are reused within the manufacturer's acceptable wear limits. The quality of rebuilt components varies widely and many come with only a limited warranty.
REMANUFACTURED ENGINES, TRANSMISSIONS AND DIFFERENTIALS
To remanufacture is to make as close to new as possible. Most wearable parts are automatically replaced. All core material is closely inspected and checked against original equipment specifications for correct dimensional tolerances. Replacement parts are new or requalified. If new, parts are made in the same production processes as original equipment. Testing is performed to manufacturer specifications and original production standards.
Choose for yourself, but know that JASPER will only provide completely remanufactured engines, transmissions, differentials and drivetrain products — or any of our other remanufactured components — with a nationwide warranty. You can drive away from your technician's shop with confidence if you have a JASPER reman component.
Brad Keselowski won the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship for Penske Racing. Clint Bowyer finished second for Michael Waltrip Racing. What did these two drivers have in common? Their race cars used components built by the NASCAR Driveline Division of Jasper Engines and Transmissions. Keselowski ran a JASPER Differential in 2012, and Bowyer used a JASPER 4-Speed Transmission. Sprint Cup Series cars equipped with JASPER products accounted for 16 Wins in 2012, 72 top-five finishes and 134 top-ten finishes.
