I see...so all my springs are 'out of spec' if I measure from their bases...which is kind of what I thought. Bugger! New springs AND shims required. I'm looking at the numbers in the little white 'Technical Specifications' booklet (that's where I got the picture from) It's also the same in Bentley, Haynes and Waynes book...all say 34.5 -.3 spec for both inlet and exhaust on '77 C3. Just out of curiousty...what difference does valve spring height make to overal preformance? I mean this thing used to run OK. -Mark
