Install of 910 springs?

Give me the low down on what it involves. I have no prob with the work but what tools do I need. How do I keep the valves up or do I have to pull the heads?

Ya, Ive been able to get my rpm's up there now with my mods and I'd like to have some reassurance in my valvetrain. I may look into pushrods as well but cannot remember who had them.

Their real straight forward once you get down too them. Biggest thing is the rear passenger side will be a PITA because of the heater box. But you can leave the heads on just bring the piston on the cylinder your doing up to top dead center and it will keep them from falling out of the head. It would also be a good time to install head studs if you think you'll ever need them

Nice. So I can just use a regular valve spring compressor. Now I just need to figure how to know when the pistons are up.

you can take the glow plug out, stick something long down in there and wait till you feel it go up than start to go back down than turn it back and you know thats as high as it will go
