Question Valve Spring Compression Tool

I'm going to be replacing valve stem seal soon and am in the process of gathering tools etc. It is my understanding that there is no substitute for the MB valve spring compression tool. My problem is locating one, preferably to be rented rather than purchased.

Anyone have any advice or suggestions? I'm in NJ if anyone knows of a local source that would be great.

I believe there's an 800 # at their web site that you can call.
