how to compress L18 valve springs?


Recommended Posts

I'm assembling my L18 head - V912, now ported, with new valves, and skimmed .020 :cool:

Is there a trick to pushing down the valve springs when fitting the rocker arms? The manual says to use a big screwdriver and lever against the camshaft - but I scratched one of the valve retainers with the screwdriver when I was stripping the head... gotta be a better way?
