I'd make one out of a "G" cramp of an appropriate size The end can be a steel collar(bush) welded or braised on with cut outs each side to access the collets . The thread is a slow action but you can use it by yourself generally. Nev

Terry s used to make a scissor action one that worked between the valve cap and the tappet enclosure,so that the tank didnt need to be removed to get the valves out.....there are other types that stick out the side so the fuel tank can stay put......Valve springs in sidevalves are generally weak ,and can sometimes be compressed with the fingers,and combined with the pin thru the slot in the valve stem type of retainer ,dont need any tool to remove.

Bevan, I spent some time trying to find a suitable compressor to suit a VB side valve until I changed my internet search criterion to look for a motor mower one.
The normal home push mower one will be too small but I found a couple suitable for early ride ons that fitted my VB nicely.
Most small engines now are OHV.
