Excellent tool

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I have read some negative reviews about this tool, and I have come to the conclusion that those people probably did not know how to use it. This tool is built with quality construction and material, and it is easy to use. I would definitely recommended this tool to anybody.

valve spring compressor

Needs a nut on threaded portion instead of the little pin to twist. Cut it off weld on a nut and it works much better with a socket wrench then.

GREAT

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Before ordering I had checked remarks and someone had remarked that the handle was too short to "cam" over; so I was a little apprehensive about buying. But after receiving the tool and reading the instructions I realized that person must not have read the instructions because the tool didn't quite work the way I envisioned he was using it. The tool worked great, very easy to use. I was able to change out two bent valves in less than 15 minutes. This tool is a great and valued addition to my tools. ...read more

Hard To Operate

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Delivery and everything was great and it was what I ordered so no complaints with summit. The tool itself is built "Well" but REALLY hard to use on just basic E7 ford heads with stock valve springs. Tool felt strong and should last a while, but you just can't get enough leverage with the little handle to compress the springs. Once you get the spring compressed and locks removed and its time to unload the pressure on the spring, watch out cause that handle is coming out fast. I couldn't imagine using this on a head with strong springs. I will be looking for a better tool. ...read more
