Too much effort to lean down and look in the port with the pipe off. Lol!
Again, no point since the owner won't do anything unless it quits again.
I gotta agree with your point there too... when ya look ya find something ya don't like most the time... but it runs perfectly. That's actually happened to me before. When I was a lot younger I shoehorned a 460 into a 67 Ford pickup to replace the 302 that replaced the 250 straight 6... Everything was running great on it but I had the engine out and decided to "check a few things out" before putting it back in... next thing I know I got it all the way apart to redo the valves, get a new set of lifters, and the cam lobes were all worn down pretty far... but that thing ran perfect for me and it was outrageously fast too...
