    cheap valve spring compressor

    Any reason this wouldn't work with the 4-tec? I know they work on LSx engines

    God I hate them things, such a PITA to use. I think you would have trouble getting this to work on our 4tecs, you may find the valve springs are too small of a diameter for the tool to grip onto.

    damn there goes my cheap way out. I have the full size one but the head has to be off and it breaks your arms trying to loosen the stud nuts.

    I'd happily lend you my valve spring tool if you weren't half way around the world. Maybe find someone close by that can lend you theirs?

    I bet it will work - you still need to use air pressure to keep the valve from dropping into the head - or at least have the cylinder at tdc.

    A lot of compression testing kits have use air hose ends where the gauge snaps on. It allows for leak down and other testing so if you have that kind of kit you already have a way to pressurize
