valve spring compressor
Hey guys. I tried to email the member who makes the valve spring compressor that you can use with the heads on the car but he never responded. I was curious if anyone would let me borrow theirs or if I had to buy it. ... how much you would charge. Thanks in advance for the help.

To remove them I use an old deep socket and a hammer.. give it a whack just don't lose the keepers in the engine.

Jegs, summit, etc sell one from Crane Cams for $168

I remember reading some place, about a person taking out the spark plug & connecting up a fitting that was connected to a air compressor
they charged the cylinder with air pressure & used some common tools to do the job

i never saw anyone do it this way before

I really just need to borrow someone's. It seems crazy to me to spend 25 percent of the cam on a specialty tool for the install.

Matco or snap on tool truch has them for $60 or less if I remember right

Would this one work on our engines?

As long as your springs don't have the spring guides on them it should work.

Ill be replacing the stockers with 6.1l exhaust springs.

CdnoilRAM 09-29-2013 09:19 PM

Should work then. Just make sure you get the shims for the 6.1L springs to get the correct install height.
