Having compiled bits and pieces for my eventually mildly warm engine build, I might be making a start on it soon and will require a valve spring compressor, any recommendations of best design and size required for the beta head?
Thanks, Marcus

Hi Marcus

I use a Sikes Pickervant one and have for decades. Buy a decent quality tool because valves springs in the face is no fun at all.

Hi Marcus

Plenty of Sykes on Ebay at not silly money with the looks of it.
