I have some AFR 220 heads and need to replace the stem seals. Does anyone have any experience with the valve spring compressors on the market? I'm looking on eBay. Which will work and which should I avoid?

are you gonna do it with the heads on the car or off?
if they are off you can run to autozone and rent one of theirs.
i don't know if they have ones you can use if the head is on the car.

i'm not sure how stiff your springs are, but i just use a 1/2" socket with a 6" extension on the end. whack the end with a rubber mallet and the keepers will fall out. gotta be careful though, they like to fly around.

Cool tools, Shawn. Too bad they don't have online ordering. I'll have to call them when I get back to the States.
