Cummins Valve Spring Compressor for the Hamilton Cams Valve Springs/Retainers.
NEW DESIGN FEATURES AN ALUMINUM TOP COMPRESSOR PLATE
NOW YOU CAN COMPRESS BOTH VALVE SPRINGS ON YOUR CUMMINS 12 VALVE, AT THE SAME TIME!
Tork Teknology worked with Zach to design a valve spring compressor made specifically for his retainer design. The CVSC020 didn't work well as the raised portion of his retainer interfered with the compressor plate. The keeper angle and diameter is different than a stock Cummins retainer.
How would you like to replace your valve springs on your Cummins 12V in half the time? I know I would. Tork Teknology is constantly looking for new ways to get the job done faster, cheaper or better. The Tork Tool CVSC040 sure qualifies as faster and quicker.
As you performance guys know, the only way to compress the Cummins 5.9 valve springs is to use a Lisle or KD tool. They are fine tools but require twice the work because you have to do one valve at a time. The problem gets worse when you tackle number 5 and 6 cylinders. The limited room under the cowl makes it difficult to use these tools in this confined space. The CVSC040 is only one inch taller than the valve springs, which gives you more room to work, on the back two cylinders. And you can replace your Cummins performance valve springs in half the time!
The tool may look simple but it's a heavy duty, highly engineered tool. The most difficult part of the design process was getting the locations correct and provide clearance for the valve springs. I have to thank my son Curtis, who spent several hours, working out the trig formulas.
The real beauty of this tool is the tapered cones on the top plate. Installation of the keepers is super easy, even on #5 and #6 cylinders. You simply adjust the height of the plate, place a keeper on the ramp, and slide the keeper onto the valve stem. IT DOESN'T GET ANY EASIER THAN THAT!!
This is what you get in the CVSC040 kit. One machined bridge and top plate, mounting hardware and a 6mm Allen wrench along with complete instructions. The tool will pay for itself in time savings alone!
