Re: valve carbon or 0331 head issue? 0630 swap?

is it possible that coolant in my oil caused my cam to fail and that all these valve issues aren't really from carbon deposits, but from a wiped cam?

anyone know how to check this? preferably from the top of the engine.
could i check the travel on the pushrods? would it make sense that all the intake pushrods should have the same travel and that all the exhaust pushrods should too?

just an idea. i would hate to miss something like this and then have to pull the head again right after i rebuild it.
'01 XJ, Limited - Stocker (w/ 0630 head)
'89 SJ - 8" SOA, 36" IROKs, High-Steering, Rear Discs, NP208 swap + other junk.
'90 XJ - RIP - 3" lift, 31's (dead, buried, but not forgotten)
