300zx valve springs much smaller than 280zx?

Hi,

I bought a set of outer valve springs for the 84-89 300zx with the intention of running them in my L28.

But they are much smaller, the 300zx outer valve springs seems to be a similar size as the L28 inner springs???

I asked MSA and they said they sent me the correct springs.

I am very confused!

You're confused? I'm confused! Why would you order 300ZX springs for an L-28? The two motors are completely different.

Because they are supposed to have the same O.D but different length. Schneider even use the same springs for L28 and VG30E.

But what ever I got from MSA seems to be off.
