I think you make a good point. The heads I have were deburred around chambers and the valves appear to be unshrouded. I think that it is actually where the cutter for the big valves(2.08) got against the chamber, but it is hard for me to tell. The exhaust valves appear the same way.
Tom, you also make a good point. Could I check the valve sets and angles using lapping compound? Seems like it should show any valves that are not seating properly. Gasoline in the chamber always shows if one is leaking as well. I can check the deck easy enough with a straight edge I figure. About the guides being too tight, I have heard of this before. Might sound dumb, but is it just a matter of feel to see if they are too tight?
