I'm assembling my BBC heads and just tried to compress the new valve springs with my "overhead" type valve spring compressor tool. Having a problem. This tool works well for "single" spring type valve springs, however my new springs are "dual" type springs. The tool I have does not grab both the inner and outer spring - only the outer. So the inner spring is not being compressed.
There are like 4 or 5 types of valve spring compressor tools out there. which is best for my application? I will problaby have to buy one because the auto part stores don't rent any other type - except the type I have which is shown below.
what type of valve spring compressor tool will work well for my BBC heads with "dual" valve springs?
