Zetec Valve spring Compressor

Hi Guys,

Any recommendations for a valve spring compressor to use on a Silver Top Zetec?
The Haynes manual suggests its a special long reach one?

That's what I use on a zetec. Works fine.
Collets are bloody fiddly things though, use a dob of grease to glue them in place and don't do it anywhere near a large immovable household appliance otherwise all the collets will naturally gravitate underneath it as soon as you drop them...
Guess how I know this..

Yes, valves all out, everything cleaned. I found it easy to use if you follow the instructions.
