Also took the valve covers off top inspect the PCV valves. What a mess. Makes sense, it being a farm truck. The last oil change was... well, it will be changed out soon anyway.

Cleaned up most of the mess and gave the PCV valves a good soak in solvent, they look to be in proper condition. Had the breather element replaced earlier with a new one from Wix. New rubber valve cover gaskets, as the cork remains on there were almost turned to stone.

Still have to adjust the valves, no pushrods were bent so that looks good.
Will change the oil when I take off the oil pan to repair that nasty dent and inspect the oil pump pickup.

The oil I will be using is 20W-50 with high zinc (ZDDP).
