The one Pelican sells is junk. The markings are very hard to read, but yes, you have the basic idea. It contains its own spring, so all you do is:

- place the valve seat
- put in the shims you think you need
- drop in the tool
- place the top retainer and keepers.
- measure
-If your measurements fall between the two poorly marked lines, then you are good to go, assemble the valve spring as per normal.

Whether you can rotate the springs or not depends on many things, but usually, they rotate to some degree.
