    MELTED CONROD BEARING

    I can tell you that the conrod bearing hole will be oval, thus the conrod is scrap Even when a bearing spins and does little damage it's oval by a few thou, that will be 0.5mm out at least !

    Valve springs for b207

    when I used to build engines I used Dbilas valve springs for above 7000rpm or left them standard for engines not revving past 7000 rpm https://dbilas-shop.com/en/manufacturers/opel/astra/astra-g/2-2-16v-108kw-z22se/2967/valve-spring-set-for-opel-dohc-16v-z22se-opel-gt
