Hi all....need some help here.  Just had the task of dimantling the cylinder head due to low compression on pot 4.  Sure enough, the valve seats were pretty badly coked up.  All carefully dimantled (thought i'd reseat and decoke the lot whislt it was apart), even positioning the springs ready to go straight back on.  Being a tad clumsy...knocked all the inlet springs off the bench.  Do they have to go back on in a specific way??  If so, is there a way of telling which way round they go??  Ive seen on the net people talking about the springs being closer at one end than the other.  Cant really see any difference on mine??  there are paint marks though.  Do these indicate position??  Thanks guys Very Happy

Don't know, but if you put which type of K you have on your profile to make it easier for those who might have an answer for you.
