Valve spring tool

This tool doesn’t harm the valve spring during install or removal does it???

http://www.jcwhitney.com/webapp/wcs/...&storeId=10101

Would it work on dual springs??

Thanks,

I have one of the spring tools that you bolt to the stud and pry down on the spring, I hate that thing especial with dual spring, I was hoping for a better solution, I guess I will do what I gotta do.

By the way thanks for the quick response.

406 look at the one moroso sells very easy to use and will not stress the stud it screws on to the stud.the bar type is to hard to use and puts stress on the stud.

The one in the link is garbage...trust me. The flat type that is pretty much a pry bar can work but messes up the treads on the stud...little metal shavings..not good. Cost a little more but u are better off with one like this http://store.summitracing.com/partde...rt=MOR%2D62370 my 2cents, bob

Hey thanks for the links mike, and bob, the Moroso valve spring compressor looks like a much better tool.

Does it screw on to the stud? hmmm

How does it anchor to the head?
