Hi, Ive got a 95 4wd MPV with a 3.0 V6, and I'm in the process of rebuilding the engine. however, while dismantling one of the heads i discovered that i wasn't the first. and whoever came before me left out one of the inner exhaust valve springs.

Does anyone by any chance have some laying around? I cant seem to find replacements anywhere. Also would anyone happen to have a couple of camshafts? mine are still "within tolerance" but they do show some signs of wear, and I'd kind of like to replace them while I have the engine open.

I have a used inner exhaust spring you can have. Although it's used it looks to be still in spec as far as the height according to the service manual.

Did you have any trouble removing the head bolts?

Haha, that sounds like a scary discovery.
Best of luck with the rebuild process!

Hello! I have a complete 3.0l that needs head gaskets. Trying to sell the whole engine, but might give up and mail you a spring... still need it? How many miles on your engine? (Mine is 150k). -Cheers

oh, I probably should have posted earlier, but yes. Mpvclub65170 sent me a spring. I have no idea how many miles my engine had on it unfortunately.

the instrument cluster must have been replaced because it said the van had 45k on it. But the ridiculous amount of wear that i found in the engine proved that to be a lie.
