Valve spring compressor nissan ET / DET

This is the one I have (photo taken whilst doing the stem seals on no.404). It was great on the GTCs and SE5A for pulling the valve springs and changing the stem seals with the engine in one piece. Most of the High Peak Noggin have borrowed it along with the compressor attachment that stops the valv...

Cheers Craig. Pretty sure they’re different to ET.

Valve spring compressor nissan ET / DET

They’re quite tricky as there’s not a lot of space to work. I tried and failed with the smaller type that grips and compresses. It was ok on a Cologne and Essex, but useless on a DET.

There are some big ones on Amazon that have changeable heads. They get reasonable reviews and are under twenty quid.

I'll put this in the scrap pile then, which is now growing daily with all the useless cack I've been keeping hold of and the unnecessary bits I'm taking off the two DETs.
