Offer: Zim Mfg. No. 122 valve spring compressor for postage
« on: February 08, 2019, 12:27:20 PM »
As part of a garage cleanout, I wound up with a Zim Mfg. No. 122 flathead motor valve spring compressor, in very nice condition.  The likelihood that I'll need such a tool in this lifetime is beyond small, so I'm offering it for $8 in postage.  Send me a message.

If there's no interest by February 16, it goes to the Habitat ReStore.

That’s funny I’m rebuilding a 5 hp flathead for my David Bradley walk behind tractor and I have a valve compressor in my amazon cart. But yes I’m interested.

No, the first person in line does need to have it - it did find a home.

If you have trouble finding one, let me know, and I'll ask my son if he has any duplicates.  If you've got any used tool stores around, look there.

I was surprised to see, looking on Amazon, that there are still companies making valve spring compressors for flathead motors; a pretty small niche these days.
