This is a shot in the dark.....................
I want to replace the valve seals on my wife's Tbird. Does anyone local happen to have an OTC valve spring compressor tool for a Ford 4.6L?

I do not need a valve spring compresser for a 4.6L anymore. I got the valve seals replaced at Magnum Machine in Chesapeake.

Just as a side note.
The driverís side head on my wife's Tbird blew out a sparkplug. So I replaced the heads on her car with the 96 NPI heads left over from the PI swap on my brothers Mustang. The head on the left is 150,000 mile head with conventional motor oil. The head on the right is a 130,000 mile head that used Mobil 1.

....now that's interesting........also on a side note,you should see my motor,pulled the heads....two bent valves,piston hit the #2 valves and messed it up hopefully the heads can be repaired......#1,#3 pistons were completely gone,just empty holes....#2 and #4 pistons were still there but the tops were blown to pieces,oil pan cracked below the front cover w/ the timing chain hanging out ........rods twisted and broken in half...still finding damage as I go further.....racing is getting expensive :rolleyes:
