Proven Quick Valve™ adapts to deliver your
classic car demands
Classic car enthusiasts have cause for celebration as Quick Valve UK announces
an enhancement to their range of oil drain valves.
The company is proud to announce the launch of its series of BSP, UNC and UNF
thread adapters. This means their valves are now suitable for fitting to such
1960-70s classics as the BMC Mini, MG, Jaguar, Land Rover and Triumph marques,
The move came in response to feedback received from customers visiting their
trade stand at the Beaulieu Autojumble this year.
Quick Valve UK Ltd is the sole European after-market valve distributor of the
Fumoto oil drain valve. The Quick Valve™ simply replaces the standard sump plug
and allows for a cleaner, quicker and easier oil change and is now available in
sizes to fit most classic cars.
Fitting one of the valves to the vehicle is easy as Technical Director, Richard
Griffiths, explains: “The valve screws in place of the traditional sump plug. It
then takes the struggle and mess out of changing your engine oil as, unlike a
sump plug which is removed every oil change, the valve stays in place to
simplify servicing; you don’t even need to use any tools. Simply follow a
four-step process of: unlocking the retaining lever; rotating the lever;
allowing the oil to drain; closing the lever. It’s as easy as that.”
No mess, no hassle and no tools are required. Less workshop time means a
serviced vehicle can return to the road much quicker, eliminating the
traditional hassles associated with messy oil changes and stripped sump threads.
Managing Director, Mark O’Hanlon, explains: “The oil drain valves are the
patented design of Fumoto Engineering of Japan; over 7 million valves have been
sold worldwide. They are suitable for being fitted to most vehicles and the
valves even have the proud distinction of having been granted ‘genuine part’
status by leading car manufacturers Mitsubishi, Mazda, Isuzu, Toyota, Subaru and
Nissan. This is a huge testimony to the reliability and durability of the
The Quick Valve™ provides a practical solution to a longstanding problem and can
