Yes .125" is common . The best thing for correcting the intake , is to correct the angle on the cylinder head . We recorrect the intake angle back to stock , so you can use any manifold that you want , and are not stuck with a specially machined intake for one set of heads . After the intake is corrected , you will need to use a 1/8" intake gasket . Your CC's will be down around 50-51 CC's if you go with a strict .125" angle mill , and depending on the margin thickness of the valves you are using . I'd also suggest correcting the exhaust side of the head as well , to avoid header problems .

How does one tell how much, if any, a bowtie head (034)has been milled?

CC the chamber and compare it to what it was new.
