OTC has introduced the 5089 air brake line release tools, designed to separate connectors on the power steering (P/S) system and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers without damage, according to an announcement. The tools are recommended for use on 2003-later medium-duty trucks and are now available in North America.
In addition to separating the connectors for the P/S system and the EGR cooler, the air brake line release tools can be used on connectors for other liquid and air lines. Each tool has two sizes: 3/8 in. and 5/8 in. and 1/2 in. and 3/4 in. The tools are similar to J-45666 and J-42971.
The 5089 air brake line release tools are covered by OTC’s lifetime warranty and are available now through tool dealers nationwide.
