[GFS] the plot thickens...

Well, I pulled the valve covers off tonight.

Found out a few things...

1) the push-rod for the exhaust valve on cyl #2 is GONE

2) OH MY GOD, I have never seen anything so disgusting. I think my 
friends were right... it's smoking so bad because the rocker covers 
are filling up with oil...  I couldn't even FIND the return galleys! 
I had to look for a picture of the heads in my manual to find were 
they were supposed to be.  I scraped as much as I could..YUK .. not 
much... and used screwdrivers, wires, brushes etc to try and clean 
out those galleys as much as I could. Could only go so far to where 
I guess it makes a turn or something.  It looks like someone filled 
the valve covers with dirt, sand and gravel in there, then made a 
nice hard oily paste out of it and covered everything.

Anyone have any suggestions for flushing out a REALLY gunked up
