9U-7241  Valve Spring Compressor 
8S-2263  Spring Tester 

Start By:

  1. Remove the electronic unit injectors.


NOTICE

Keep all parts clean from contaminants.

Contaminants may cause rapid wear and shortened component life.


Note: The following procedure is for the removal of the inlet valve springs and the exhaust valve springs without removing the cylinder head. This procedure can be performed on only one cylinder at a time. This procedure will prevent the inlet valves and the exhaust valves from falling into the cylinder.

  1. Position the No. 1 piston at the top center of the compression stroke. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Finding Top Center Position for No. 1 Piston".
