Back Again on Unco-operative Valve Stem Springs and Keepers
Well have continued to fight with compressing valve springs and slippery keepers. Have 4 cylinders done. Skipped 5 for now, because will need to unbolt the carb to get to those springs. Focused on cylinder 6. Now have less leverage, and need to reach farther, plus have the impediments of the shock tower original brace, and the hood above. Don't have enough leverage to impact the keepers by just hitting them with the hammer and socket set up as previously suggested, although that did work in more open work area. BTW think I have the smoking issue diagnosed, because seals I am removing are all cracked. Just stuck, and once again open to suggestions.
