I never thought locating a tool could be such a pain in the ass. The first time I asked this question I was pointed to eBay. All they have are the spring compressors that I have already tried and non of them work. The supports on the head and the head walls are to high and too close to the spring to get anything to hold on. (Thank you Honda). So I went to NAPA. They sold me a tool for small engines that wouldn't hold onto the springs. I have tried tools like this: I have tried the C clamp that goes around the head. Nothing works. So I went to Borman Honda here in Las Cruces to ask a mechanic what they use. The Secretary for the techs said "There is no way that I am going to interrupt a tech so you can talk tools with him" after telling me that "That is an awfully hard job, you should bring it to us and have us do it." I am at wits end, no one knows what tool to use or they won't tell me. Please help. Someone has to know of the correct tool.
