Here are a couple of pictures of the Poxy valve spring replacement job I had to do tonight, I did buy a pair but only replaced the broken spring as one hell of a nightmare job to do and had enough Mad Mad Mad
Could've done with Squiddly Diddly helping me as you needed so many pairs of hands Mad

What a tricky job, you have to compress the spring and get these tiny collets out which I eventually  done but getting them back in really tests your patience and they keep pinging out and you need microscopic eyes.
I had about 3 pairs of glasses on top of each other just to see the bloody things Shocked
Thanks for diagnosing the problem Ian as you were spot on mate but wish I'd have let you do it as you kindly offered  lol!
That'll teach me eh Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
