The cylinders look ok even though there may have been some coolant or other liquid sitting in #5 for a while, I can see some light stains. There is no significant movement in the pistons. The exhaust valve for #1 cylinder has a big chunk out the side and is cruded up pretty bad. The remainder of the valves in this head look ok and will probably clean up. The valve giudes are good.The valve seals are as hard as nails .I guess the smoke was due to oil getting past those seals......The owner doesnt want to spend a whole lot on this project right now so I think it will just be one new valve and do the rest over. I have not removed the other head yet.......
