I removed the valve cover and was pleasantly surprised to see no sludge. Its a very clean motor.

Unfortunately the radiator has a leak. Looks like a farm mower threw a stick into the radiator. I had to clean a lot of such debris from the engine compartment. I wonder if anyone re-cores these anymore - for a reasonable price ?

I got the radiator repaired but its probably a good idea to look for a new one.

Looks like Intake on number 3 is missing a pushrod... or it's very bent.
