    Subscribed. I see that both Trick Flow and Comp Cams have valve spring compressor tools listed in Summit's LS/LT section now.

    I saw those but then I heard some stories that some can't get the dual spring down enough to put the locks on I was looking at the one from thunder racing that does 2 in one shot

    Here is what I use. Makes things super easy.


    You place the silver part by itself on top of you valve spring and give it a good whack with a hammer. Place rags under your head when doing it. It pushed the spring against the head while the valve does not move the keepers loosen and get pulled into the tools magnet.
