i will be up grading to a different cam soonish and thought it would be handy to get a valve spring height checker to make sure i get the right springs/retainers the first time....

which one of these heights will suit 4v big port heads ??? Three ranges are available: 1.400-1.800, 1.800-2.100, and 2.100 - 2.400,

engine is still in car running so dont want to pull down just yet and the nearest machine shop is 1/2 hr away

cheers jak.

buy one. You can add a shim of a known thickness to a short spring stack to make it read over 1.800", and then deduct the shim thickness for an actual installed height. Joe-JDC.
