A noticable tilt usually means that one of the torsion bars is 
cracked. It will break someday, but it could be a couple of years 
down the road. Of course this could also be due to someone who 
replaced a bar and didn't bother to adjust it correctly.

This is normal for an old engine, nothing to worry about. You might 
want to make sure that you're using the right weight of oil, and that 
your idle is set correctly.
