I didn't... they just kind of look good.
All I mean is that they look like they're seated, not cracked, etc.
Edit: I had figured that there may have been a broken cotter key or something that made the cams go off time with the sprockets, but they bolt on with 2 bolts, opposite and off center, making this impossible, as it turns out. I can post a pic later if you like.
Intakes were a bit dirty - but I think the cylinders look really quite good for dirt to be causing all this commotion.
I'm kind of hoping the head gasket was the culprit and she'll fire right up.
