Anyone have a recommendation for a good compressor to use with the heads on? I would love to have a Buxton, but can't justify the expense at this time.

Thanks for the offer Mike, but it's a tool I should have added to my collection a long time ago.

Stud mounted, Bolt down rockers and Shaft type rockers usually will require a different valve spring removing tool.

that's where I ran into trouble,with shafts anyway. Different size and width of bolt pattern on them so one needs to be sure of what they have. Stud type are mostly universal.

Yeah, that Buxton onhead spring compressor takes all the work out of 400 lbs closed pressure springs.
Makes the job almost fun!

It looks like an awesome piece, but dang, you would have to use it quite often to justify the cost.

I thought LSM tools were expensive, but they're really proud of that Buxton part. Shocked
