I knew what you meant, but thanks for the clarification.

I found a page here that shows the same spring compressor I have used successfully on stock SBC springs a number of times. It's inexpensive as well. The seals, retainers, locks, oil shields and O-rings shown there are what you will have- I think.

If you have 'positive' seals that are pressed onto the OD of the guide boss, they do come in several different ID and OD. But see what you have (small O-ring or positive type) and we can go from there.
Ok, time to remove a valve cover and do some digging. Thanks for the link. I will compare what my engine has to the one on that page.

Got it. I imagine it wouldn't make much of a difference if the truck hasn't been started in over a week?
