above the vlave springs? as in it was between the follower and the retainer?
Yes, above the retainer.

There is a washer between the spring and the head so the spring doesn't grind away at the Aluminium. It's called the valve spring seat on the parts diagrams. Maybe it was put together wrong.
There shouldnt be anything between the bucket and the spring except for the retainer.
Have not removed the valves, but these washers do not look like the valve spring seat. It just looks wrong to me......
