I have borrowed a Spring Compressor to strip down a couple of Cylinder Heads (12G940 and 12G295). I have done the 12G940 and today I thought I'd do the 12G295.
I clamped the head down to my workbench and went to fit the spring compressor it was then that I noticed that the springs are held in place differently on this head that the 940. On the 940 the collets are held in place by the Top Cap and the force of the spring. On the 295 there is a sort of circlip.
If I pull the circlip my guess is I'll be hunting around the garage for the parts that fly off, that's unless I end up blinding myself!!
The spring compressor does not look as though it will fit over the clip so should I try and slip it under between the clip and the top hat?
