Not asking if the springs where set up correctly..
I'd like to know if the spring is NOW at the correct spring height and if the on seat and open pressures are still in spec.. As this will tell you if the spring lost strength and allowed the valve to float..
if many of the springs installed height is wrong.. you'll see that now.. but I'd want to measure more than just one for this. as the fails spring if it weakened will most likely be shorter now than when installed..
