sure looks like someone put some headgasket sealer in that system >.>
if you plan on putting that back together definitely machine the heads smooth, and have a valvejob done. slap it all back together with new headbolts and go get yourself a couple of gallons of distilled water and Prestone Clean. those galleries shouldn't be plugged like that. you can expect a heatercore failure if indeed their is sealer in the system...
and don't forget to change your oil again after a few hundred miles. make sure you get all that coolant out before it wipes the babbitt off your bearings.
RUST!! eating away at me more than the rear fender wells
