Reviews

This valve spring compressor does not work on an angled valve 0-470K in my Cessna 180. The geometry is wrong and the tool lugs are too short to compress the valve springs. I spoke to the tool manufacturer an they are looking at making an adapter for the 0-470 angled valve engines.

One size fits Continental and Lycoming. Tool is made of steel and will last long term use. If youre starting out in the business (A&P Mechanic) youll use this tool many times during your career.
