Meet the next generation of Fumoto. The new Fumoto SX-series comprises two distinct, yet fully integrated parts: the through bolt and oil-flow control body, according to the company.

“The SX can rotate 360° which allows orientation to achieve a smaller profile and maximum protection,” the company said. “The unique through bolt design can be tightened independent of the valve body, allowing for a simple installation that easily avoids obstructions.”

In addition, Fumoto said, the ergonomic control lever makes the valve easier to operate, even in tight spaces. “It features the same tried and true secure locking mechanism as our original valves, but now remains parallel to the body in the closed position for a reduced profile,” the company added. “The versatility of the SX-series valve also allows installation without an adapter on some cars 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 an even faster oil change for some models.”
