    Tools like that do exist for ohv engines of course. You'd need a lot more leverage to compress that big valve spring.

    wouldn't be hard to manufacture one out of a bit of 50 x 6 flat bar and weld a bit of pipe on for a handle

    I have a pretty good range of inherited imperial (AF & Whitworth) spanners from which I make special tools (obviously usually more in the 'special spanner' category though).
