Oh damn thanks for the info!GrandpaSleeper,
I'm not selling mine, but may I ask if you're planning to use this to replace valve seals? The reason I ask is because I think this tool is OK for removing followers (rockers), but it's not all that great for valve seal work--particularly because of a lack of space to carefully install the locks (removing with a magnet is easy though...). The first time I used this tool (1986 2.5L N/A) I actually had to remove the throttle body to get enough "swing" to compress the springs on #2 and #3 cylinders. Not a huge deal, but time-consuming nonetheless.
When I do valve seals I just remove the cam and use a run-of-the-mill OHV spring compressor. Lots of room, and lots easier for me. It also gives me a chance to replace front & rear cam seals.
My opinion only. I just don't think this tool is all it's cracked up to be. Different story with the head off the car...
Holy crap dude... with this guide, I might actually feel confident to do it myself!It's actually very easy to pull.
One you do it this way you'll never go back! My $0.02 anyways...
Hahaha, nice!!! Rock Auto has been sooooo good. I was so choked when I lost all of my fridge magnets I had collected!I received seven complete sets of eight!
I called them and explained the overage. The guy told me they weren't worth the company paying postage to return them. "Keep 'em," he said. Now I'm set for a while...
Indeed. I have the K-D 2400; however, the PRC-built knock-offs are now on Amazon (now not available until June...)I am surprised you found that valve spring compressor anywhere, it has been discontinued for a number of years.
Thanks for the info! Really appreciate it... took it for a drive the other day and it happened again, after like an hour of driving and sitting at a long light, some poor schmuck next to me got blasted in the face with a giant blue cloud. UGH!!!! Feels bad man!These would be the correct seals should you want to choose the positive locking style.

Hopefully next time it is some one who is road rageing at you and pulls up along side to shout at you for something you didn’t do and he will get blasted in the face.Some poor schmuck next to me got blasted in the face with a giant blue cloud. UGH!!!! Feels bad man!
Hahahaha... I swear my car lets out a puff of smoke at every 3rd or 4th light if I'm in stop-and-go traffic... it's unpredictable... but if a TESLA is behind me or beside me, it ALWAYS lets out a GIANT puff of smoke... without fail... hahahaha...A guy passed him in the center lane then got stopped by a light. Tom pulled up and waved and smiled. The guy went berserk. Screaming and flipping him off. Just high strung I guess.
