16 Valve spring/Keeper Tool

Recommended Posts

I Am removing Valve keepers on my 16 Valve engine.

 

The manual calls for a MB-990666 Tool to complete the removal and reinstall.

Any ideas where this can be obtained.

 

Thanks in advance

Jim

I made one, it wasn't too hard. Started with some thick walled SS pipe 'tubing' if you will the same diameter(or a bit larger, it's the ID that counts) then using a cut off wheel on a dremel or small angle grinder, I notched one side in an inveted V shape about 1/2 wide  at the bottom of cut to about double that-ish about 3/4s of the way up the tube.  Basically the flared V shape just gives you room to R&R the keepers  with forceps or a pick.  Also, your local cylinder head shop will likely disassemble for you for a few dollars.
