    Homemade valve spring compressor . . .

    Used to be a flywheel holder for something else. I removed the bolts and did some grinding to make it fit better when I put it back together.

    Dear Johnny, Steve White at Vintage M/C Northwest should still have the tappet block puller. He's on 253.846.2775 and is there every day. I'm using a valve spring compressor from my 1948 Land Rover which works just fine. I'm sure generic tools could be adapted. If sufficiently desperate or budget minded, two people with large screwdrivers can get the valve springs out with the cylinder upside down on the work bench.
