Our Story

Our founder, Ernie Hite, started in 1938 rebuilding fuel pumps and carburetors for Ford vehicles and selling them exclusively to Ford dealers. Since then, we have continued to maintain a close relationship with many Ford dealers, and still have a reputation for being able to supply most of their rebuilt parts needs.

In the early 1980s, we saw the need for change and expanded our operation to include all major manufacturers’ product lines. Since then, we have grown to the level of full coverage on all major domestic and import lines.

Owner Tom Blake has been with Hite Parts Exchange for 28 years, with over 42 years of parts experience. He is actively involved in the operation and enjoys the new challenges which come our way daily.

Our rebuilding operation is made up of four departments:

  • Carburetor and Distributor
  • Electrical (Alternators, Generators, Starters, and Motors)
  • DC Motor Division
  • Brake, Clutch, and Water Pumps

Our department supervisors are eager to help solve your parts problems.
