Compressing valves

Its not really an issue for me ATM as I have bigger fish to fry, but I think it might come in handy for others...

After replacing a lifter on the XH with a $10 wrecker jobbey, its not working 100%. To save having to undo the 14 hundred ( ) bolts that hold the rocker gear on, risk breaking one of the bolts or the actual rocker pedastools everytime one needs to replace one of the little buggers, would there be a way to compress the desired valve spring so the lifter could be simply pulled out?

It would certainly save alot of work when only the odd single lifter needs to be changed. Any ideas welcome. :s4

Re: Compressing valves

I'd be interested in hearing about this too, don't reckon there would be many ways much better than taking off the rocker assembly though?
