Over the years, I`ve been accumulating (collecting) valve removal tools---heres one I`ve just used on a `22 engine rebuild which works very well--it a K-D Mfg. Co. #395. Might be common? I`ve got some real "oddballs" too.Its fun to try them occasionally... Paul

I have that tool too.
It's readily available as a #383 because KD didn't screw around "improving" it....... :-)

I have the same one. Dad paid for the house we grew up in with it.

That basic design is rather common among tool manufacturers because of it's adaptability. It works well on alot of flat head engines and on overhead valve engines with the valves in the cyl. head.
