OK, thanks guys. I did pull the head cover off, and the cam and rocker arms all look really good and clean (even though the outside of the engine is pretty dirty). I also measured the cam lobes and all are well within spec. So I am inclined to button it back up and leave it alone.

I will, however, need at least 2 gaskets at this point... the stator cover gasket and head cover gasket. I could make them... or order a cheapo full set on eBay... or....? Any other ideas, such as a place to order economically priced individual gaskets?

I'm going to do a search on here for "leakdown" to see if I can find guidelines for how to properly do a leakdown test on the head, what I'm looking for etc. But, if anyone feels like chiming in about that procedure, feel free. I will probably do one before re-installing the engine just to be sure.

Thanks again
