The launch of ProMAXX Tool’s Valve Cover Saver (VCS) Repair Kit means technicians faced with broken ignition coil hold-down bolts on Ford 3.5L EcoBoost and 5.0L Coyote engines can quickly and easily rescue the valve cover without costly replacement of the cover. The VCS kit delivers value by saving Ford Dealerships and independent shops time and money.
The patented VCS system attaches directly to the plastic valve cover. Special machine-grade tooling enables technicians to drill dead center on broken or corroded ignition coil bolts and allows them to bring the cover back to a better-than-factory-new condition.
VCS is available in three versions, ProKit, ProKit Plus, and ProView; which includes a flexible, scoping digital camera. The camera connects wirelessly to a user’s iPhone or Android cell phone. The camera can also be used in additional scenarios where visuals are vitally important including exhaust manifold procedures and EGR repairs.
“VCS continues to support our vision in bringing quality, productive, and precision solutions to the market. Technicians using the Valve Cover Saver can easily fix the cover in about 15 minutes,” said ProMAXX President & Founder, Jeff Del Rossa. “This is a significant improvement over the current process of removal and replacement that can rob service operations of almost three hours.”
Del Rossa explained the impact of the VCS ProView on repair shops. “Technicians will see a boost in efficiency and savings in precious technical resource time,” he said. “Now with the digital camera version, technicians have the capability to assess each situation to determine the most productive approach in making the repair.”
