The underside of the valve cover was just as bad. I soaked it overnight in Purple Power and that got a lot of crud off but also the paint. Has anyone used kerosene to clean heads before?

There is a product called varsol that works better.  Usually available at petroleum distributors.

Already got the baffle covers off and cleaned more crud out. The middle baffle wasn't nearly as dirty as the end one. Gonna go look at a pair of Capris for sale tomorrow and see if i can get them cheap. Both non runners and only one has title but lots of parts.

Progress is slow. Between full time school, part time work, family, and fixing other stuff the Capri is coming along slowly. Got another headlight assembly from eBay super cheap and installed it today. Had two more keys made for car.

Note: I went to a professional locksmith to have keys made and he had no original blanks for this car so he wound up using Mazda 323 blanks.

Got a couple of used tires so it's a roller now.
