The June edition of Classics Monthly Magazine recently tested a range of valve spring compressors and it’s ‘Monthly Test Winner’ was the Draper Expert Valve Spring Compressor.
Classics Monthly said – “Locking handles keep valve springs compressed. Double-ended collar supports are suitable for a large range of engines. The double-action lever cams allow its use above or below a valve. With jaws capacity 55-175mm and throat depth 165mm it is similar to others. The knurled wheel is a useful addition for fiddly operations, especially when refitting valves”.
They liked – “Excellent spec with plenty of options. Smooth and easy to use”.
