I have had several mid 80s pickups that had sludged up engines when I got them. I always pulled the valve covers, intake, and pan and scooped out all that crap with one of my wifes tablespoons, I never told her! Then washed it all down with diesel fuel and a parts brush. Got to have a big pan under there to catch all that though. clean out or replace the pickup tube and replace the oil pump. Never had an engine fail after doing that.
