Question - What's the difference between the 8516 and the 8387, they look practically the same?
Answer - The 8516A is a rocker arm remover and the 8387 is a valve spring remover. Some websites have their listings pictured wrong which adds to the confusion. Our pictures are correct. The rocker arm cannot be used to remove the valve springs. You can however use the valve spring remover to remove the rocker arm, but it's not easy. There is also a risk of dropping the valve keeper if trying to use the valve spring compressor when removing or installing the rocker arm. It's best to use these different tools for the purpose they were designed for to eliminate possible problems. That's why some of our customers purchase both.
