Valve spring compressor

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know which type of valve spring compressor I need to buy for my 907 head? I was planning on getting one off eBay UK (cheap & cheerful) as it's not something I'm going to use that often. However, there seem to be a gazillion different sizes and designs and I'm at a loss as to which one I need. I borrowed one to take the valves out but it was so long ago I can't remember what it looked like and I no longer work with the guy I borrowed it off.

Thanks, Paul.

I use one similar to this, available from your local Halfords for twenty quid.

Hi Paul:

Just did my valves and used the type that GKP used in the picture. For me, works great - better than the one above it suggested by Travis. I tried both.

I rented one for $12/day. Only need it for one day. New they cost about $100. For me, renting is the way to go.

Regards,

Bob

Thanks all for the replies. I like the look of £20 from Halfords so I shall invest in one tomorrow :rolleyes:

Thanks again, Paul.
