PO must have went 20k between changes or used junk oil. Sludge in the screen as well as some metal shavings from the oil pump shaft teeth. When we did the swap the valvetrain of the original engine looked like someone dumped roofing tar on the rockers and valve springs.

I thought for a sec being a 2001 it was a head that caused it to plug up with white thick junk.. but no oil change, yep that will do it.
