    someone who knows what it's for parts

    I don't have a photo but you are looking for a pipe that is threaded on one end and crimped almost closed on the other also a spring that fits inside the pipe and a rod that goes inside the spring that has an large flat washer that will not go through the spring and has a ball end on the other end that hooks into mount on car frame.

    Heirloom Tools

    You are correct it is a valve seat reservicer, it has adapters that hold the valve by the slot or dimple in the valve head and rotate as you stated using grinding compound.
