Looks like they never changed the oil. If that's in the oil filter then it's probably all throughout the motor. Imagine what went through the injectors???

Pull a valve cover and see what it looks like too. Hopefully it all settled in the oil pan over the year and it will need a good flushing for sure.

I was about to say, I'm afraid to know what's in the HPO system . . .
You could get a LOT of thin oil, like a 10/30, and just fill, try to run, drain.
But I'm afraid you're gonna need to tear into the HPOP, clean it, as well as other oil system components.

Like you said, at least get it all heated up and try to get everything more liquid first.

yea ive got another hpop not worried about it im pretty sure theres fuel in the oil honestly just due to the fact of how gelled it is and with heat onthe oil pan it does start getting thinner and running faster im hopeing as well that the oil is all just in the pan i know lack of maitnence is a ***** but any ideas on what else to flush through the motor ive debated throwing some diesel 911 in the oil to see if it helps ungel it but i wont run the truck with it in there

it should have a block heater but it may need the cord. plug the block heater in and that should get that old oil flowing. a space heater or 3 might help also. then just get 4 gallons of fairly cheap oil, try to crank it over a bit and possibly run it a few miles then put some good oil in.
