I may be being a bit of a moron so forgive me :-)

Stripped down top end on an old xr250 1998 

i haven't done this kind of rebuild before but took the plunge anyway 

All stripped down and starting to clean all the parts up before rebuilding

cam out ..

all good until I tipped over the top of cylinder head ( part with valves in it ) and a little spring fell out ? Only maybe 4mm wide by 15-20 mm long ? 

I think I have found a hole it came from. It nonidea what it is or if I have definitely got it in the right spot ?

It is the spring for the auto decompression... the spring goes in the hole then the little dowel.
