Because you sometimes get garbled characters in the FOUND output. Or even that the C64 prints FOUND at all then we know it's hearing something from the deck. You just need it to hear it "right". Which is what leads me to think you'll get there eventually once you've messed around with the heads and volume enough.

There is some good tips on alignment here:

You should also use a bit of alcohol and a cotton bud to clean the read head too.
