    wow that is a great idea to use rope inside the cylinder to hold up the valves. i never would have thought of that.

    i know where i do most of my work on my car the guy has made a lot of tools based off of expensive ones. saves LOTS of money and if you break it you can make a new and better one.

    TWO THUMBS UP!!!

        Bookmarking. Nice tool you made; I'm going to copy it..well, try to anyways.

        Just a side note here for people reading this thread...White is giving an example of how to remove the valve springs (etc.)...Never, never, never set the deck of the head on a hard or dirty surface if it's out of the car and going to be re-used.

          Yes, thank you for pointing this out. The head in the pics is a junk ZE head. Heads are machined to very tight tolerances and a .05mm scratch in the wrong place can be disastrous.

          ...But hopefully people reading this thread will realize you can leave the heads on the car.

          And j-dogg, im flattered.

            Especially on the deck surface when we seal up with MLS gaskets

            Great job on the tool.
