I used my 'George' Valve spring compressor today, what an absolutely brilliant piece of kit.

It was like having two extra pairs of hands.

It was extremely easy to use and made the job a pleasure to do. The head was fixed firly with the vice bracket which also helped.

Cheers George, quality kit, excellent value

I have done two heads with George's kit now and they have been a doddle. Way easier than the conventional spring compressor that I have here.

You have got to love his dedication to making these bits and such high quality. Thanks George.

I'll second that! Infact i'll have another with my next order so i can have one for inlets and one for exhausts! I know they can be swapped to do both but time is money!! :lol:

thanks guys

but cant take all the credit, this was adapted from a similiar idea, just copied really to fit the cylinder head.
did take a few weeks though, and a few protatypes.
it was only after doing my own cylinder head that i struggled, probably due mainly to sausage fingers and how awkward and sunk in the head the valves and collets are.
happy to be of assistance

regards

george
