Atomic Performance Products - XR6T on-car Valve Spring Tool
On-car Valve Spring Removal Tool to suit Ford 6 Cylinder DOHC Our Patented (Patent # 2006100221) tool is a simple device to facilitate quick and easy removal of valvetrain components in Ford 4.0L VCT twin cam Barra engines. The unique features of the tool are as follows: • The cylinder head does not need to be removed to gain access to the valve springs • Once the tool is fitted, all 4 valve springs per cylinder can be changed concurrently • No special skills are required to use the tool • The possibility of collets falling into the engine is greatly reduced The tool saves many hours of labour when changing one or many valve springs, valve stem seals or retainers - a mechanic can change all 24 springs in about 3 hours. Changing valve springs is very common due to the varying tensions of standard springs and their rapid deterioration in service, which in turn caused erratic idling and drivability issues. They are also regularly changed in Ford turbo vehicles as higher Boost can bring about premature valve float. To use the tool, simply remove the camshafts, fit the tool to number #1 cylinder and the 4 springs can be changed in about 10 minutes. Refit the tool to the next cylinder in sequence and continue until all are changed, refit the cams and the job is done!

FG ENGINE FAIL
This engine had a timing chain guide fail at two years of age which was repaired by Nuford in Wangara, there history report states that the cam timing was out by two teeth and they simply replaced a guide and put the timing back. In this clip i show that the valves would have hit the pistons and caused serious damage to the valves ultimately leading to the current engine failure two years later.

In standard trim these very torquey engines generate anywhere from 320hp to 495hp and respond extremely well to basic modifications.
