Would this valve spring compressor work?

    This is the one that I use. It works great and is from the company that makes the dealer/OE tools that Mitsu specs.

    Wow I had totally forgot they made those, thats makes me think a little about doing valve springs while i have the cams out.

    Anyone else have some feedback on this?

    Good luck with it. It looks like the ones you can use to change springs without pulling the head. Just make sure your cams are turned to the point where all the valves on the cylinder you are working on are closed and make sure to block your wheels so you dont run the risk of the motor turning over. I have used something similar and it worked great. Good luck.

    What??

    The cams will be out regardless and every valve will be close from the spring still being on there. And Im pretty sure you couldn't turn the motor over with the cams out while removing the springs.
