Generation IV Internal Engine - Grab your tool
05-08-2012, 01:00 PM
I have an LY6 that will be seeing street/strip duty that will be receiving a new cam and valve train before being put into use.
Right now I need to get my hands on a nice tool that will assist in compressing/removing the valve springs but I don't know these engines well enough to know which tool is worth considering and which tools are a big waste of money...
So grab you preferred tool for this job and post up a picture or even better a web link to where I can purchase it. My search was futile.
Thanks for the assistance.

There are a few manufactures who offer the tool your looking for. Try checking Jegs or Summit they both should carry it. Comp Cams, Proform, and LSM all make the tool.

i have dual springs and it had no issue compressing them both at the same time

Thanks guys. For the record the last one I had was supposedly a Snap-on tool and maybe it was but I was expecting a bit more from a tool from Snap-on so maybe it was some Chinese business man ripping off their name cause it was sort of a poor design in my opinion. That's why I sold it off but now that I think about it maybe I wasn't using it the correct way either.
