I learned a long time ago what Dave poined out in another thread, valve springs are a consumable item on the BBC. Back in maybe 1978, when I had my first 427, the thing was running great. The heads needed to come off for some other issues and I found 6 broken springs. Put in new and a few thousand (rather punishing) miles later some were broke again. Oh well, their way cheaper than the results of a loose valve train.
