Type 4 top end rebuild as smoking it’s nuts off when abroad last year

  1. With valve spring compressor I found the Laser one fitted if I turned the valve spring end upside down- its sort of cup shaped amd meant to rest over the valve, but it works if you unscrew it, and refit it upside down and balance it on the spring retainer...
