- valve replacement
- needle nose pliers
Great option for avoiding a head shop
I am so glad ZZP developed this simple tool for valve spring/valve replacement. I will say is not for someone that isn't mechanically inclined. There are plenty of opportunities to lose the keepers if your not careful, and it takes a steady hand to put them back in. I used a magnetic pick and it wasn't to bad, I had the huge advantage of having the head off though. The steel piece can get stuck on the casting of the head when pressing it down and releasing it, but I just wedged some needle nose pliers behind it as I released it and it came up fine. A decent mechanic will be fine using this tool, it's well built.
