IPD is a global manufacturing, engineering and distribution company providing quality components for heavy-duty equipment. IPD focuses on helping equipment owners save money without risk to reliability. IPD has been the standard for heavy equipment component quality, innovation and support since 1955.

Many of these aftermarket parts exceed the Caterpillar original manufacturer's specifications, so although these parts may cost less, they often introduce better reliability over original equipment parts.

IPD parts innovation includes:

  • Grooved connecting rod bearings for use in Caterpillar 3400 series engines which help reduce cavitation and extend bearing life.
  • Crevice seal style liners for Caterpillar 3400 series engines which can help reduce the amount of cylinder liner movement and o-ring failure in these applications.
  • When mechanics complained of excessive blow-by in 3208 Caterpillar engines, IPD developed the first 3-ring pistons with dual ni-resist inserts for this application.
  • IPD was one of the first companies to offer Induction Hardened Cylinder Liners for use in Caterpillar engine applications.

There are construction vehicles such as an Eric truck crane, road service trucks such as an Oshkosh snow plow, utility trucks such as three white 1988 Chevrolet utility trucks, and landscaping truck, such as a 66 inch tree spade truck.

Avoiding the Pitfalls of Link Building and Sinister Link Exchanges

I wrote an article about linking and the way sinister link exchanges profit from those who do not understand link building correctly.

The article is available at:

I think it is a pretty good article, myself. I really haven't seen another article like it. Though it is pretty much based on common sense, some may not be as well educated on the subject of Link Building, so that they can't make the connections concerning sinister linking techniques. Hopefully, this article lays everything out so that it is more easily understood.

A slight warning... this isn't a mini article that can be devoured in a few minutes, this is intended as a serious article that is written to help any webmaster, including beginners. If it misses that mark, tell me. I am anxious to hear how I might improve it.

Although this article is not directly automotive related, I know of many small business automotive shops starting or struggling to get their business online. This is intended to assist businesses (from any industry) with some great pointers along those lines.
