Having trouble removing the valves from the head. None of my old style spring compressors work. Is there a special tool/technique?

The Clarke deep jaw valve spring compressor from machine mart works on all valves. Depending on how much abuse your eng8ne has had the tops of some of the valves may have mushroomed and will not pull through the valve guide before a bit of grinding

Its not the winning but taking part! or is it taking apart?

Will get one, and thanks for the tip on the valve heads. I managed to get the plugs out of the crank shaft today. I was told that I would be amazed at the gunk inside. I was gobsmacked! Solid black solidified oil that need scraping out. The engine is only 60,000 miles, I am surprised any oil got to the bearings at all.
