I need to know which valves and springs fit into which places for a 1994 barina

big headed valves go in the inlet holes ( ones to the inlet manifold and little headed valves go in the exhaust ports
Measure the spring heights but they should be the same so they can go where ever
If you have large dia springs and small dia springs the little ones fit inside the larger ones to stop spring bounce at high rpms.

What causes my 1965 4 speed mustang to backfire and sometimes stall?

backfiring is ignition of the fuel mixture while an inlet valve is still open. Check firing order as there may be a HT lead crossed . If it backfires then the mixture is burnt in the inlet manifold so there is nothing left for the cylinders so it will stall. If you are running holley carby then check the power valve for a hole in the diaphram Check for vacuum leaks. check ignition timing is correct and not too far advanced. if the HT leads are touching each other this will induce a spark in the wrong cylinder --use lead spacers from an auto spares shop

Most cars have separate relay flashers. One for turn and one for 4 way. Look at turn signal flasher relay. Next if applicable, look for bulb relay.
