The new, patent-pending Fumoto SX-series of engine oil drain valves is comprised of two fully integrated parts: the through bolt and oil-flow control body. The SX can rotate 360°, which allows orientation to achieve a smaller profile and maximum protection. The unique through-bolt design can be tightened independent of the valve body, allowing for a simple installation that easily avoids obstructions. Also new, the ergonomic control lever makes the valve easier to operate, even in tight spaces. It features the same secure locking mechanism as the company’s original valves, but now remains parallel to the body in the closed position for a reduced profile. The versatility of the SX-series valve also allows installation without an adapter on some vehicles and trucks that may have previously required one, and with the new SX valves larger body, its quad channels allow for better flow rates and a faster oil change for some models.
