I like the Idea of the compressor. Great! I quickly calculated with an estimated valve diameter of 30mm and 8 bar pressure that there will be 57.6kg force on the valve to hold it in place.
I wont let a valve collet drop... hopefully Im currently in front of my computer and the husa is far away. Just to confirm: The spark plug thread is 10x1, right? So I can order the hose. Compressor is available. Aside from tools, are there more things to prepare / buy? Sealing mass, Spare seals, etc.

Sorry for the questions. Ill do the work in my flat and there is no room for the husa for a long time, so I want to be prepared. Ant its my first time working on a Husaberg.

You need to borrow or buy one like this mate. They are more a size suitable for light automotive but do some checking, hopefully won't be too big. Or you could just make something if money's tight? If you can get another pair of hands on the job to remove/refit the collets, the spring can be pushed down by two hands. I'm thinking a tool that resembles a die holder (as in tap and die) if you follow me? Push down with both hands....

Also a telescopic magnet is handy for the collets. Cheap and inexpensive....

Good on you for doing the job mate

The tool is quite cheap. I ordered that one for less than 20€ incl. shipping:


Thaks for your help! Lots of helpful input!

Best,

Put a little dab of grease on the inside of each collet so it sticks to the valve stem before you ease the pressure off of the springs....one of em always wants to escape.

Spark plug is 12mm X 1.25 pitch

Could use a fitting from a compression tester as above or from a cylinder leakage gauge set
