MG MGA - Head to engine block alignment

There has been some discussion on the subject of the possible misalignment of the cylinder head with the engine block on "B Series" engines.
Does anyone have a stripped down block and head to check this?
Just fit the head to the block with no gasket and the head stud nuts just more than finger tight.
With the block upside down shine a strong light into the cylinder bores.
Can you determine if there is a misalignment between the bore and the combustion chamber?
