Canuter valve, Real or fake?

Was just watching season one of home improvement with tim allen. In one of the episodes he said he "chromed the canuter valve" on one of his cars. I have never heard of a canuter valve. I think its a fictional word like "blinker fluid" or "radiator belts". Real or fake?

Just a joke, is all.

Used to thing Allen might actually be a car guy. But on one episode he refers to a "450 big block".

valve

a canuter valve is the valve that lets air flow to your computer. I would not chrome mine because you can't see it well. No point.

Sure they exist, I got several plus some flux capacitors. They all fit Deloreans.

Double, I don't know if we are talking about the same thing. Mines on a Chevy. I'll agree that flux compasitors are all Delorean, but I saw one on a Rolls Cinhardly once.

The correct name is Kuhneutson valve.

You can purchase one here:

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...11356b544f68be

Kale has the best price I've ever found one for. $65.99 plus shipping.

Just remember to install it in your Delorean between the Flux Capacitor and the Mr. Fusion. And remember to only use an approved #4 Langston-Ganglia Wrench.

I`ll make sure I add blinker fluid to the flux capacitor while I`m at it to make sure it don`t overheat and trap me lost somewhere in time. Knowing my luck I`d end up in prehistoric times and Oompa Tannen would be looking to kill me after I told him my name was Alley Oop.
