Part of Lesson Plan: Remove and Replace a Valve (updated) by Steve Nagle

Activity Overview / Details

_iceUrlFlag=1.jpg   After locating the spring compressor, take it to your work area.  The cylinder head should be removed and placed on the workbench.

Adjust the fingers on the spring compressor so they fit snugly around the valve spring.  Most valve spring compressors have a thumb screw that will widen or narrow the fingers.
