My Dad is a grumpy old man who kind of hates everything. But years ago, I remember seeing an infomercial for Gator Grip wrenches, and he actually thought those were a great idea. Anyway, when I see something I think he’d like, I write about it, and this just came across my desk. I thought you guys might enjoy it. What do you think?
A New Way To Change Oil
Tired of busting your knuckles and getting oil all over your hand, and lamenting over frozen drain plugs and stripped threads? Now, there’s a revolutionary way to change oil with just a touch of a finger. The Engine Oil Drain Valve made by Fumoto Engineering.
The Fumoto Valve is a quick-release brass ball valve that replaces the standard crankcase oil drain plug. Install this valve and you can drain your engine oil without tools and without mess. Just lift the lever from its locked position and give it a quarter turn to open it. The ball valve design provides a straight flow for efficient drainage and a perfect seal when closed. A small amount of oil may be drawn from the bottom of the pan by opening the valve, making it perfect for oil analysis. For industrial engines, the N-Series valve comes with a hose adapter to drain the oil away from engines.
The valve has been tested and approved by most major engine/vehicle manufacturer including Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Subaru, Mazda, Cummins, Caterpillar, Perkins, Deutz, and Komatsu.
Fumoto has sold over 7 million valves worldwide in 25 years mainly to Heavy Duty truck market and industrial equipment market, and now the valves for passenger cars and pickups are available from our Fumoto authorized on-line dealer at www.oildrainvalve.net
