Replacement cylinder leak tester for Calvan 38900, also known as Snap On FRT10-1. Commonly used with the Time Sert 5553 and Calvan 39300 kits. Can be used with other thread repair kits too. Used on sparkplug holes that have a "well". Helps prevent valve damage caused by reaming/drilling and tapping with the valves open and also helps to isolate the cylinder being worked on. Debris can then be removed with compressed air without being blown past the valves. *Not for use when spark plug holes are near the surface.  

See the video below showing the leak detector popping out when the valves are closed. At 4:05 minutes in the hose pops out. This tool can be used on any engine that has a spark plug well to determine the valves are closed prior to repairing a spark plug hole. We have many TIME-SERT customers that purchase this leak detector when working on other vehicles for this reason. It saves time compared to pulling the valve cover to examine the can lobes to verify the valves are closed.
