Ported 305 heads??!! Kinda like........

polishing a turd! You could put ALOT of work into re-doing those and then a set of double humps or after market or Vet heads would out flow them 6 ways to Sunday!
Anyway....one thing to look for is put an intake gasket over the intake ports and see if the ports are the same size as the gaskets holes. Same thing with the exhaust ports and exhaust gasket. Same size? If so the PROBABLY some port work has been done. Feel inside the ports. Does it feel smooth and slick ? If so then its a good guess it has had some work.

Or a set of vortecs would surpass all of them, but that wasn't his question.
To the original poster, look closely inside the ports, if they are smooth, they are ported. If they are rough, about the same surface as the outside of the head, or the valve cover rail, they are not ported.
