Default Valve removal tools

With 32 bent valves on my '85 to replace, I prefer not to use the old standard c_clamp type valve spring compressor, it doesn't fit well. I found a "universal" bar and lever style similiar to the Porche tool illustrated in the WSM at ZDmack . I don't know if it fits the valve retainer. Any reccomendations from experienced members?

Do a search on the forum, Tony made a great one from a universal $19 part with a piece of 2" PVC tube. Worked for me.

You're right, the G clamp is awkward to use, it's very easy to mark the surface of the head by accident when opening or closing it. I've not used the bar/lever style, but I wish I'd had one.

Are you sure you want to replace the valves? Wouldn't it be easier to replace with complete heads? The cost of new valves will probably be more the the cost of a pair of used heads (it certainly is here in the UK).

Member for two years, and this is your first post - and such a sad note to start on (as it was for me too). The only upside is that the car feels much more rewarding to drive after repairing it yourself.

32 bent valves? I weep for you.

I weep for the the PO Dave, poor attention to maintenance brought this on, timing belt shredded, cam gears worn out, tensioner dry, worn bushings and bent tensioner bolt. Nice body and excellent interior sold the car. With a complete engine build it will be a keeper.

If you are talking about this: http://www.etoolcart.com/browseprodu...---NM5112.HTML
This valve compressor set was used successfully when I did the valve seals on my 944 S2. The head is the same (basically). I assume you have the engine out of the car? The tool worked great even with the engine still in the car, if the heads are off it must be really easy
