Here's the low compression #5. Best I can tell, it leaked at the cam tower. But I'm not sure, this area shows the cam tower at 5.

A close up:

This shows the head on cam side at area of heavy oil concentration on low compression cylinder.

this is the piston side of #5

Sad that whoever marked the heads, marked them on the mating surface. They left pecker tracks of the numbers on the cam tower.

Also, what do you make of this machined surface? It looks pretty rough to me. i also noticed the stud holes are beveled on the cam tower...will my cam tower survive?
