    hey all

    im currently rebuilding a B16 to drop in my 86 civic but have ran into a problem as this is my first b16 rebuild. i have begun rebuilding my head and when it came to putting the valves back in i opened the box and found all of the valves and valve springs had scattered themselves around the box ( i love it when the wife moves my stuff lol) anyway the problem i have come accros is the dual valve springs. i know they go on the intake side but the inner valve has closer coils on one end than the other, does anyone know which way up these inner springs go?

    any help much appreciated

    I believe the tighter coils go towars the bottom (closer to the head)
