Removing valve springs from the inter looks easy with this tool, but where do you get one from. I have never seen one for sale. Without one the job can be a bit messy!
Hi. If you look back a while to the topic Norton Inter Valve Springs, you should find what you want.
I think I will take a copy from the Norton book along to my local blacksmith, he would be much cheaper. I am wondering whether the springs can be removed and replaced by hand without a compressor just like on a late Matchless. I shall soon know!
Dan Carpenter gets these made and they are for sale on ebay at £90, so it will depend on how many times you will use it to warrant the price. You could try 2 flat plates suitable drilled and a nut and bolt. Of course, no good if you have coil springs.
Will give that a try, many thanks,
... is far easier than controlling the tongs unless you are a dentist. With the plates and bolt system you have very specific control of the ends of the spring and can pull them with a loop of wire through the coil when the tension is optimal.
How often are you intending to change the springs and under what conditions would determine your choice.
Hi Robert, i have a couple of pairs left from the 3rd batch I've had made, I can do you a pair for £80.00 as its not through eBay if your interested.
