take off the valve covers would be my guess.

Its neither good nor bad, only thinking it makes it good or bad.

You can see some of the front lower ones without taking anything apart.
What you will see is a 12 point nut and the top of the stud..... as opposed to the head of a bolt if it has the stock head bolts.

You can see the lower head studs or bolts on either side of the engine. Look at the valve cover then follow the rocker arm carrier...''the thing under the valve cover'' to the head. their will either be a big bolt with a head or if it is studed it will be a 12 point nut on a stud.
