So ive been doing a little diggin on google/youtube and the general consensus is that it is possible to do the valve springs with the head on block in the car etc.
I need to do the springs/retainers upgrade but want to avoid taking the head off if possible. Aside from the obvious, and the tool required, are there any tips/anything to look out for before i attempt this? The only concern i have is keeping the valve in place.
A handy method ive watched is putting some bungy rope or something similar into the spark plug hole, and winding the cylinder up so its packed with said rope so the valve cant go anywhere. Then its simply changing them out. Never done valves before in a car so i have no idea if this is a good idea or there is a better way. Also being a 63t, is there anything else that i need to look out for specifically for this motor? looks like any other straight forward job albeit with 3/5ths of fuck all room, but looks straightfoward otherwise if the valve issue is sussed.
