    This was all I could think of so I would Not have to pull the head. Proform is a great tool also.
    I hope this helps anyone trying this.

    Well, that was a little painful to watch LOL...

    I did this a few weeks ago on a BBC, you can use a SBC stud as well, 3/8 or 7/16 as they have the same 7/16 NC going into the head, even the same 11/16 hex. If your really stuck without any screw in studs at all, just use a proper length 7/16 NC bolt.

    I made my first "in car" spring remover tool 30+ years ago, (left) still use both of them today, in car or on the dyno, one hand, 1 nut/washer with a socket & ratchet, sometimes don't even need the socket/ratchet for the milder springs. Get's the job in no time flat.
