Does anyone have a valve spring compressor that will work on these tiny
little 30V intake valves? My p-car valve spring compressor works OK for
the exhaust valves but the intakes are so tiny I just can't get my tool
I'd like to beg/borrow one if I can, buy one if I have to, or else
I'll have to make something if all else fails.
Amy's dead a6qa may live again soon. The problem ultimately turned out
to be the compression rings on one bank were fully compressed and glued
into the grooves with black gunk. $1200 worth of new parts piled on the
bench, about 1/2 done honing the block, have all the internals
cleaned up, one head half striped and cleaned, got stuck last night on
those little teeny-tiny intake valves.
