have fun :twisted: the tools probably the best. we made ours out of a c clamp and old socket that was the same size as spring retainer. you need to cut a decent size window out of socket to get the valve locks in. eye protection is not required here, but highly recommended. use a little screwdriver with a dab of grease on the end to hold the locks and stick them in. if springs are progressive put end where coils are closer towards the head. if i remember right everything else was easy. gl
