Installing Keepers in NA Motor

Postby NicholasL214 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 7:20 pm

Has anyone got a quick solution, that is easy, to installing the keepers that sit inside the top of valve spring retainers on the Intake and Exhaust side of the head of a NA engine?

I have purchased a valve spring compression tool. But, installing the keepers is so difficult. It has taken my son and I 8 hours to install the keepers on 4 valves on the intake side. We have 12 that is 32 hours to go.

See pics of the keepers and valve spring retainers and valve spring compression tool.

Also, is there a differance between the Intake valve spring retainers and the Exhaust side? I ask as I was sent two different valve spring retainers, but the engine I am working on has the same valve spring reatiners on the Intake and Exhauts side.

Thanks for the help.
