 gurgling low register

Hi all, I was asked to test a Selmer 104 for a local repairman recently, and the low register "gurgled" anywhere from F down. Seemed like the E was the worst. The gurgling was not 100% of the time, but I couldn't eliminate it by how I blew. I also could not seem to get it to gurgle more, sort of "when it felt like gurgling, it did".

It was tight as a drum (both joints) and I tried several reeds but the gurgling persisted. It does have several bladder pads, but my collegue has another 104 with all corks and it does the same thing. This oboe has been in several shops for the same reason, always continuing to gurgle.

We were thinking, could it be the bore? I understand these oboes are molded plastic, could this make a difference? Thoughts?
