    checking valve spring tension?

    How do you measure the amount of spring in a valve spring.?
    Even though the height is the same can't the elasticity be different?

    thanks

    Yes, there is a tool to check valve seat pressure, etc. A decent sized machine shop may have something to help you out.

    More like a REPUTABLE head shop should have the tester. Is your friend reputable Dan?
