I've checked Autozone they don't have one. I'm not about to spend $80 for a one-time-use tool.
Still wondering if I can fully remove the top of the tappet without hurting anything in order to get the valve springs in.
you get what you pay for.... again the rod torque is too critical to "guess" with a ft/lb torque wrench. , the in/lb is a "finer" adjustment, ft/lb is like a "coarse adjustment...
You don't have ANYONE that you know that works on cars for a living? or tractors? couldn't you borrow one? If you lived closer I'd let you use one of mine.

I've got the engine back on the frame at this point, and about all I have left to install is covers and tins so I'm going to retire this thread now and revert to posting in my overall restoration thread (link in OP of this thread).
First time I start it up I'll record a video and link it here.
