    Looks like i am going to need a valve spring compressor for replacing my bent valves. Is there any kind that is better than the others? Or should i just pick up one from ebay? I see two kinds there one is an 8 inch auto engine valve compressor and one is
    UNIVERSAL OVERHEAD VALVE SPRING COMPRESSOR AUTO TOOL or are there better ones?

    Also if my valves are bent could it have messed up my my valve seats?

    And yes the autotensioner went bad.

    The one in your link won't work. A friend of mine made one that attached to a hydraulic press, but it's somewhat hard to describe. I think Strap-On makes a Honda valvespring compressor, but it's like a gajillion dollars.

    Best bet would probably be to either take it to a machine shop or do what this guy did Honda B Series Valve Spring Installation

    The first of those two links is a GM/Ford-style valvespring compressor, it won't work on a Honda.

    That thing is awesome. I have one and it works great. The only difference to make it work with an H22 is they drill the mounting holes out a bit wider.
