There are no dents in the valve adjusting screws, they all have a shiny surface.
And there is no play between valve and guide, I did the test you mentioned (compressing spring and remove the clips) on all eight valves, as I checked the valve tappet surface on all eight.

But thank you for all your tips and hints!

Without doing a top [valve] overhaul how would you suggest the springs be checked as we have been told many times you can't get the spring out unless the valve is removed.Ben Dover wrote:There are also instances when the valve seats have been reground enough times that the springs will not be under sufficient compression. Professional automotive machine shops have varying thickness shims and guage sets to determine the correct number of shims to return the springs to their proper installed height and compression.
Felix, this may be your problem.
