Help - 404 broken inlvet valve spring

Made a rather disastrous discovery (given it's mogstock in 10 days!) today while doing valve clearances. We've got a broken valve spring. It's the outer one of an inlet valve.

I haven't fiddled with valves for 15 or more years, and all my memories involve taking the head off. Someone, please tell me this isn't the case.


PS - anyone got a spring kicking around? :)
