Default Valve Spring Removal Tool

I don't know about everyone else. But, sometimes I get distracted on the internet and end up going down a path I didn't intend and hours later find something really cool I had no idea about before. This is the result of such a diversion. A valve spring removal tool that you hit with a hammer to get the keepers off and then you hit again to put them back on:

The thing is so cool!

Amazon has a set of the big and small ones for around $60.00.

I have wasted untold hours with the little bitty valve spring screw down compressor, a magnet on a stick and a high frustration level to want to try this tool out.

And the best thing about using that tool?

The BFH. Nothing says precision tooling better than overhauling the engine with a BFH.

That is what I thought too. Then I started researching it. Most people can just push on it without the BFH. I was thinking bent valves when he used it the first time. It seems that is a very rare occurrence.

I just thought it was neat.

It is high on the cool factor, but only because you take you little engine apart with a hammer.

I liked the rope. Probably would make me fell better than the air method.
