Recently aquired a 72 f250 with the 390 engine. Was told "it was running when parked 5 years ago". I was taking all the precautions (changing fluids, soaking tops of cylinders through plug holes, changing filters etc.) And when I pulled the plugs they had rust on them, then when I drained the oil I got about 5 quarts of water and 2 quars of sludge. Also when I pulled the carburator the intake manafold was quite rusty. Should I chunk the engine?
