UPDATE---Valve Spring install with engine in truck

I am using Comp Cams 910-16 valve springs. What valve spring tool did y'all use to do the job.

The valve spring tool I have is too tall to get anywhere inside my truck.

I am ding the springs while I am doing the head studs so injectors will be out of the way.

Thanks,

Re: Valve Spring install with engine in truck

I used a small snap-on. It has a twist knob directly over the spring. Whole thing is only maybe 4 inches tall. (this does not sound exactly like I wanted it too......lol) No smart comments please!

Re: Valve Spring install with engine in truck

The studs are in..Damn is that hard on the body. Fat men should not work on their own trucks. Take out the motor mount bolts on the side your want to raise and the tranny mount from the cross member, put a block against the exhaust manifold and lift. Worked great to get the rear studs in. Thanks for that pointer Jeremy...

The valve springs were supposed to be in today but they are on back order. I have to make some calls tomorrow. The one that looks to be the hardest is going to be the rears. Looks like I may have to lift the engine like I did for the studs.

The turbo, well, I am waiting on Bean......Bean???....... Hello,,,,,,Norman.....(a little Billy Cristal there)

Re: Valve Spring install with engine in truck

Glad the stud install went well. :) My body was sore for a couple days after that one.

I'll be looking to hear how the valve spring install goes with the engine in the truck, especially whether or not you have to rock the motor again. I really don't want to have to go trough all that and pulling the AC box cover again.
