    Are you just replacing springs? Why?



    Valve seals while your in there, maybe Ti retainers, push rods, and have the Speed Inc valve spring tool really... really helps.

    Bill has the valve spring tool you need. we modded one to work better in tight areas. you'll need a way to hold the valves up when you take the springs off, we use a compression tester hose hooked to constant air
    if you want to come up to Mercersburg when you get your springs we can have them in pretty quick.

    It would be nice to find a set of titanium retainers & locks, but will work without.
