I forgot when we did the engine work on the 425, I took some pictures with my camera phone....
they didn't come out that good, but eh, better then nothing.
Its hard to see, but the heads/rockers are gunked up quite a bit.... I dunno, I have seen worse, but it is the worst of my 3 cars...it can't be good, but the 425 dosn't seem to care.
My father said it is probably from lack of regular oil changes over the years and just general heat build up, the bottom of the valve covers were really bad, though I cleaned them up nice with the parts cleaner.
I bet being owned by an old lady in FL for the majority of the cars life, it was just driven to the store and stuff.... oil never had time to heat up, and this is exactly what happens with moisture/acid are left in the oil and stuff.... running an engine without it getting up to operating temp... ah well... one day this car will have a hefty 500 :)
has 91k origanal miles on it.
