Yes there is actually something like that out there. I'm not sure where you would be able to find one though. I only know b/c when I put my OD pullies on, we had to pull the fan to pull the crank pully off and had to pull the radiator hose to get the fan out...I was just going to take a pliers to it, but my friend said we'll use these! they're not very big, but they do work a lot better than pliars. They are probably the same length as a pair of regular sized farmer pliars (don't know if you know what I mean) but about 6-8" in length. One end of the nose has kind of a pointy ball and the other is flat. To hold the spring from getting away. they work pretty nice.
wow...all that...could have just left it at "yes there is" oh well
A friend of mine has a Snap-on set of pliers for the spring clamps. They are sweet, but they also cost about $125. Here is a link to Snap-on's web site to the pliers section. There is a couple pairs for under $20. Snap on Pliers
Those Snap-on clamp pliers are awesome. I don't know how many times they have helped me out at work.
