Valve spring tool

Hey guys well I'm picking up a 97 Honda Odessey Sunday with a f22b2 and it might need valve seals. I've been doing some research but I have one question. Would this tool work for our type of motors?

Thanks!

If you are replacing the stem seals only, what you would need are, aside form normal hand tools, a rope and a magnet.

yeah you'll need a magnet too and a ton of patience lol, you can pop off the springs with a small magnet and a socket but u need the spring compressor to put them back on

This SI is for Lycoming engines but can be adopted to most 4 stroke engines, if you ask me.

I gave that information to OP with assumption of the cylinder head still attached on the block.
_____________________________________________
I have something similar to this since '85. I had to make an adapter to work on some of cylinder heads I worked on due to limited space around the springs. Removal of cylinder head is required to use this tool.

I have this kind as well. But I've never had luck using this one.

So the rope trick is pretty much, put the motor to TDC then feed rope into cyl 1 and turn the crank slowly till it stops???

I've never done this on automobile engines, but on aircraft engines, it worked good.

You need to remove rocker arm assembly from CH.
Bring piston BTDC.
Feed rope.
Bring piston close to TDC, till it stops.
Remove valve assemblies.
Make sure keepers don't fly away on you.
Make sure working area is clean.
I may use old bed sheets to cover engine bay just in case.

Good luck.

rope stops valve from falling into cylinder by filling cylinder up with rope, right? Ive heard of this, never tried it though.

Yes. The rope keeps valves in closed position while you are pushing down on upper valve seat in order to remove and reinstall the keepers.

If you have access to an air compressor there is a fitting you can use on the compressor line that threads into the spark plug hole, you pressurize the cylinder you are working on to keep the valve up, there is also a tool you can use to compress the valve springs while the head is still on. Or do the rope trick.

i saw a video on youtube, he put a harddrive magnet in a socket thats about the same diameter of the valve spring, with the magnet inside the socket, he hits it with a hammer and the retainer pops off and the magnet catches it, I forgot about how the retrieval of the valve works, but when he assembled it, he used a bigass pair of channel locks to squeeze the spring and used like 5 zipties in between the top and bottom coil to keep it compressed. assembled everything put the retainer in place and cut the zipties. looked easy enough, toobad its such a pain in the ass to replace such cheap items that make a huge difference if yours are worn
