H22 valve checking springs

I need to find some springs that are the same dimensions (or at least close) as the valve springs with a very low rate so I can use them to do take some measurements during mock up. I know people have found them, but I'm having no luck. Does anyone happen to know where I can find such a thing? I thought MSC is where a lot of people were getting them, but I couldn't seem to find it. McMaster didn't have anything that was soft enough to compress by hand.

Use the inner spring by itself.

Re: H22 valve checking springs

I found some that look like they'll work perfectly, and the spring rate should be light enough that you can check piston to valve clearance with the head on the block by pushing the valve down until it contacts the piston. :)
