Yeah, I'd have to agree w/you. Perhaps some leaked out a vent? And unless they were serviced recently...why not? But since other "things" might pop up and bust yer budget, maybe just topping them off, if needed is the way to go.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

This is one reason why I like AMC V8s... no holes in the valve covers. When I laid mine over a few weeks back, it didn't leak a drop of oil. I simply set it back in its wheels, waited a couple of min to let any oil drain back down. Pulled the plugs just to be safe, turned it over a few times to clear the cylinders. Popped the plugs back in and was on my way.
Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

When I laid mine over (upside down), it was upside down for at least an hour. Flipped it back over, let it sit a few minutes and started it. I didnt pull any plugs, maybe I was lucky. I dont know if oil will compress or not but I do know it smokes!
