SCCM 2007 R3 - SCCM Client not automatically installed on reimaged computers

Hello,
We are currently running SCCM 2007 R3
We have had SCCM configured and running for about one year.
The SCCM client is installed on our computers automatically, using Client Push. These computers are connected to our SCCM system with client status - Approved. Then the computer is reimaged. (Currently we are using Ghost for imaging.) The computer name remains the same, and the computer is still listed in SCCM, but the SCCM client is not automatically installed on the reimaged computer.
We believe that we have somewhere between 80 and 200 computers that look like they have the client installed in SCCM, but do not have the client installed.
How do we identify the computers that do not have the client installed?
How do we use SCCM to install the client to these computers?
Thank you for your assistance.

Are the images sysprepped?

You can send the clients to all the PCs. This will not hurt the existing clients.

Hello All,
I received a recommendation that we should manually delete the computer in SCCM as part of our computer reimage process. Then SCCM will discover it again and push the client. Do you agree with this recommendation?
Thank you.

Not sure. If automatic pushing is not enabled then installation will not occur. It may get detected though.

Are you sure automatic push is enabled?

Microsoft omitted the word AUTOMATIC in "Enable Client Push installation to assigned resources".

Then try it on a unused desktop. Should go OK.
