heres a lil update:

you8 can see a little leaking on the side of the valve cover...



So after removing the radiator i noticed missing bolts on the exhaust manifold. this could have led to the bad exhaust valves :( . unfortunately theres no way to determine who did it, or how long the engine has been running like this. Now heres a Question for anybody. im getting ready to drop the engine this weekend, but after taking off the exhaust, i realized the bottom oil pan isn't flat so i cannot just prop engine on a car jack and lower it out, so how the heck do you get the power plant out without damaging the bottom? here's what i am refering to:


Any ideas?

Put your jack under the flat part of the oil pan. You have to stabilize it on the way down, but that is what I did.
