Thanks was thinking the same. I put fresh oil it in and sucked coolant out. Also put marvel myster oil down each cylinder, rotated freely by hand. Wonder if I should prime oil pump and fire her up to see if she’s leaking steadily?
I would get new intake and head gaskets as cheap as they are just to be able to check if the head surface is good on head check all for peace of mind and then you would know what you have if decently close on surfaces clean real good and get thicker head gasket. Re torque and go a little more wont hurt especially if there are original head bolts better yet get a topend set from arp maybe even studs .its better then a hole in the pistons .thats my 2 cents good luck
