Burnt valve

So, about two months ago my '02 started running really bad. Compression test showed zero compression on number 4. Turns out burnt valve and blown head gasket. This picture was taken seconds after I took the head off. Still haven't drained the coolant from the block. Check out evidence of blow by on number 2 and 3. 32 years of UGLY!
