OTC has announced the release of the 6982PMC Professional Mechanics Collet, a new exhaust manifold stud remover.
Designed for gripping a small amount of metal to remove broken or frozen manifold studs, the new stud remover works on threaded studs with as little as ¼th inch exposed material. OTC offers a lifetime warranty coverage on the kit, which is now available in North America.
The OTC 6982PMC collets are engineered to securely grasp broken, frozen or corroded exhaust manifold studs. To facilitate the removal of a number of broken bolts or studs, the tool contains collets in 6 mm, 7 mm, 8 mm, and 10 mm sizes. The collets tighten within 1/16th inch of the head surface in order to reduce tipping significantly. The compact size of the tool kit makes it easy to fit behind steering and suspension components.
The new OTC 6982PMC can currently be procured through mobile tool trucks, warehouse distributors and other OTC resellers.
