OTC releases exhaust manifold stud remover

Updated May 17, 2019

OTC has introduced an exhaust manifold stud remover, the 6982PMC Professional Mechanics Collet.

The stud remover works on threaded studs with as little as 1/4 in. exposed, ideal for gripping a small amount of metal to remove broken or frozen manifold studs. The kit is covered by a lifetime warranty and is available now in North America, the company says.

The tool includes collets in 6 mm, 7 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm sizes to remove a number of broken bolts or studs. The collets tighten within 1/16 in. of the head surface to greatly reduce tipping, OTC says.
