i am going to pressure wash it i think. i don't have time to do that unfortunately.

oil cap
the carbon on the valve cover has already been blasted with compressed air. this is the after shot. before it was on a 1/4 inch thick in some spots. cams look relatively good at least.
this is what was coming off with compressed air.

afraid it is signs of overheating. from the 4 inches of the headgasket i can see it looks pretty good, but thats the only section i can see. it runs well. also my oil pan gasket is going. i hope it is just incredibly deceiving and something else like everyone says, because by gawd that is a project i was hoping i wouldn't have to do on this thing. here is a pic of the oil pan seepage.
