The universal spring compressor I got from an auto parts store could not
reach far enough, so I had to improvise by making this U-shaped bracket.
The walls around the spring should be protected from scratches since they
act as sealing surfaces for hydraulic tappets.
Saab B204/B234 cylinder head rebuild. This head is found in all four-cylinder
Saab 900 and 9000 from 1994 to 1998, as well as 1999 9-3.
Tools and supplies:
- 12 mm socket: camshaft cap bolts;
- 11 mm socket and extention: valve seal tapping (a metal
tube of a similar size will do as well);
- valve spring compressor: it should be able to reach down into
an inch-wide lifter socket;
- thin needle nose pliers (curved nose preferred);
- fresh engine oil.
