Joe - engine oil is super clean. it was the rocker arms that were full of debris, I litterally had to dig that crap out. I just don't think they were ever properly cleaned. the car mainly sits and is owned by an older lady which rarely drives the car. never driven hard, or by any grandkids or kids. (she made sure she mentioned that to me) could be BS, but she seems like an honest person. her not driving it probably killed the lifters and usually short trips as well, never got hot enough to circulate the oil properly. I will get an oil pressure reading when it goes back together and I'll see if I can get the R.O. of what and when all work was done, including parts.
