    Is it normal to have brown valve ? Because the head was stored in the three last month ?

    The gasket was brand new but the block blow up because of an ghetto rebuilt . I hope the head is still good

    I hope you plan on rebuilding htat head before you plan on using it.

    the brown on the valves is surface rust it happens. before the head was stored
    you should of sprayed it down with WD-40, it would of helped a lot.
    you might be able to remove the surface rust and use reuse the valves depends
    on how bad they are. You might have to purchase some new valves

    Looks like they could be useable,pull em out and hit 'em with steel wool and WD 40,if they start to look right after just a little bit of rubbing,they can be saved.
