Seen worse! Nothing here an angle grinder and scotchbright pads can't cure. Yeah, it just wasn't running right for a while. 2 head gaskets? Bet one is factory. I hope the previous owner wasn't trying to cure something, but I know some jeep and military vehicle guys double gaskets to get more power.. personally, I wouldn't do it. While you are this far, atleast take the valves out and sotchbright those too. Or... how far are you going to take this project?

Thanks, all.

Tony, this was about as far as I had planned to take this project. (Actually, not quite this far, but you know how that goes.)

I"m not sure I"m up to taking the valves out - I may still take the head in to the shop.

Can I use some kind of solvent on the carbon deposits on the pistons and head?

Jerry, I had some carb issues, so I"m hoping this is the result of a rich fuel-air mix, rather than an oil control problem.

I"ll be putting on GB"s new carb when I put "er back together!

DON'T USE SCOTCHBRITE PADS!! The abrasive in the pads can go down between the piston and cylinder wall and score the cylinders and/or the ring lands. The carbon is normal, if you want to get rid of it, bring the piston up to the top and use a scraper or razor blade to get it off. Wipe with a shop rag as you scrape it.
