Cylinder block

Post  elwood-59 on Tue 14 Nov 2017, 2:07 pm

Hi,

Just picked up my cylinder block the other day. Setting it on my workbench and examing it all around I think I saw some loose dirt and grime in the passages. This made me think of the job of rebuilding old engines and having the engine block hot tanked (professionally) by a engine rebuilding company - just the cylinder before adding anything to it - if for nothing else for peace of mind. Very Happy

How you you see that? Needed? Waste of time&money? Absolutely necessary?

Again nothing seriously wrong with the block not a sandbx full of casting sand, just something possibly lurking inside.
BTW how about the cover over the transfer port, in order to ease cleaning, should I remove it first?

Any suggestion? Embarassed

Thanks

Elwood

Hi Elwood
I just did what I always do and blow all the ports out with compressed air and give it a good eyeball
