Glad you got it running. I would be concerned about the "gunk" that shot out of the #3 spark plug hole though.
Earlier you said that it hadn't run in about 15 years, and now you say that gunk shot out of one of the cylinders. How long was that "gunk" in there, and what was the nature of the "gunk"?
Might be 15 year old coolant from an old cavitation hole, and it had hydrolocked back then, and that's why it sat so long without being run (really bad). Or it could just be from the exhaust valve sitting open all that time and rainwater and other "gunk" got in through the exhaust manifold while it sat (not quite so bad, but still bad).
If it was mine, I would pull the head just to see what's really going on in there.
