No, but if you really wanted to, you could use it to replace the Schrader valve on the fuel rail with the engine RUNNING.

Same thread as a fuel rail? It does have a automotive use correct?

Yup, It's an A/C service port Schrader valve replacement tool. 66GMC answered correctly on the last page.

This one is for R-12 service ports which, coincidentally, are the same size flare fittings as many EFI fuel rail service ports.

OK, this should be interesting.

Another one from the "unusual tool" dept.
I didn't even know what it was, but I did have to blur out the text on it as it was a dead give-away.

No kidding? This is a real time saver if you have a leaky service port valve...But I can count on two fingers how many times I've used it.

Is it calibrated in measurements in any way and is it assembled the way you would use it?
