Engine oil drain valve

Truck & Engine | Truck Parts | January 16, 2013

Fumoto Engineering’s engine oil drain valve is a quick-release brass ball valve designed to replace the standard crankcase oil drain plug, allowing engine oil to be drained without tools or mess. By lifting the lever from its locked position and turning 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 suitable for oil analysis. For industrial engines, the N-Series valve comes with a hose adapter to drain the oil away from engines.
