Sludge!

Wow. I pulled the valve cover off the 3.5 that's undergoing the 4.0 stroker rebuild and was I astonished. Tons of hardened carbonized sludge. In a 3.5. Guys, this is a result of either not changing your oil often enough or using cheap oil or that old favorite Quaker State which has been known to gum up more engines, because of the parrafin it contains.
Check these out:

How does one 'clean' that up? Good grief I wouldn't know where to start.

On a 1G 3.5, at least you'd have been able to see evidence if you pulled the oil filler cap off... don't really have that luxury with a 2G... man I can't believe those pix.

That's largely lack of oil changes, possibly coupled with a faulty PCV system or some other source of moisture ingress.

Quaker State has no more "parrafin" in it than any other oil on the market today. Your information is about 50 years out of date.

Well the bare block and bare heads will be getting hot tanked so they will be clean inside and out. Everything else that goes back in will be new, with the exception of the rocker arms but that will depend on if they are still usuable. So it's not really an issue to the rebuild, more of a freak show kind of thing!
