I have read comments that the Gates kit came with good components, bad ones, and you never knew what you would get. I contacted Rockauto and they responded:


The parts in the Gates kit will likely be made by Gates. However, sometimes manufacturers do buy parts from other manufacturers and re-sell them as their own. In doing so, they declare the quality of the part worthy of their name and stand behind the product with their warranty.

We have no control over manufacturer supply chains, nor are we informed if/when a manufacturer chooses to do this. Thus, we cannot guarantee out of which factory these parts might have been produced.
I have reached out to Gates themselves and am eager to hear back.
