I know this has been covered many times but, could you guys help me out? I am working on two front mount 8N's. One took water in the manifold somehow and one of the exhaust valves is partially frozen. Here's my problem. I'm using a C-Clamp type spring compressor to get the valve keepers out. It worked great for the intake valves. But, the exhaust valves have taller rotator caps on this tractor. Even though I fully compress the spring, I still don't have enough room to get the valve keepers out between the rotator cap, and the cap on the end of the valve spring that the keepers sit in. After reading a couple of other threads, I'm beginning to think that I missed something between what the IT manual said and what I have in front of me. Am I supposed to compress the head side of the spring, and remove the valve guide keeper and then remover the whole assembly? If so, I'm going to have to get the blue wrench out on this valve. The valve guide assembly is pretty stuck. I'm probably going to have to knock it out from the top. Also, I've been looking for tappet adjusting tools.Most of the threads that I'm finding covering this subject are pretty old, and what was good info then isn't panning out now. Does anybody know where to get a set of tappet adjusting tools? And for that matter any of the other specialty tools that one needs to service these tractors? I called Snap-On and they said they no longer make anything for the flathead engines....
