    I was left over with this (pic), most of the seals split while removing them.. And the inlet side is a pita to rip out.

    I just did this job on my v8 BMW - but I took the heads off and used the big C-Clamp compressors and it was easy peasy!
    I had to take the heads off for other reasons really (chain guides, and to drill out air-flow passages).

    As it happens I have the original tool that was recommended on here, somewhere.. Never did use it. Somebody else did my Supra for me years ago.

    I've used the Ferrea seals on the stock engine. Got the set from whifbitz. All good so far.
    Different springs and cams shouldn't matter as the size of the seals is very much the same, Ferrea and OEM.

    I recently replaced my valve stem seals using this how to, was excellent. I used Supertech seals. Heres a pic of new against old!
    On cold start up occasionally I would see heavy blue smoke also on acceleration although not so heavy.
    Car is spot on now.

    Yes this works. Would be good if one of the mods could copy the pics to the forum!
