Plus.... I found one of the flappers missing after the fact.

Either way, seems to run fine. Just hope the tranny didn't sustain any damage in the over heat. It's...

She's alive! Had to wait on new exhaust and valve cover gaskets, as well as new exhaust hose, but put her back together today and she fired up like a top. Runs perfect!

Thanks all for the input...

"pull all the plugs, apply wd40 liberally into each hole, and rotate on the starter"

The only thing left to disconnect would be the alternator, but I'll remove that belt tonight and try again after it's been soaking all day in Mystery Oil.

After that, the starter's coming out so I...

That's the way I understood it... which is why I can't imagine the head gasket isn't fried somewhere... even if I do get it free.
