  I don't think they'll work.  I've never really needed
a spring compressor to remove the front springs on my
Morgan.  I did need on when I tried to install +4 sprints
in my 4/4.  Never got them in.  The coils are too tight
for a normal spring compressor.  I tried to make one and
still couldn't get it to work.  Finally gave up, and 
found out that the springs were for a +4.  

Check out some of the front end articles on my Morgan
web page:
