Trying to ascertain whether that is a valid reason for going through the trouble.....
Nope. Let it rest peacefully where it is.

Parting shot: Do I have to get the head machined at a shop?????
Yes. When I did my head I removed the head with the exhaust and intake manifolds still attached. I then took all three components to my machinist who disassembled, inspected and cleaned them. Turned out that my exhaust manifold was cracked - took 2+ weeks to source another from a junkyard Cabby. FYI if you're still running your original exhaust manifold then, after 30+ years, it is probably cracked too.
