The day I brought home the block.
It had been sitting exposed to the elements, and sustained quite a bit of water damage.
Stripping the block
Way too heavy to be moving around without a hoist.
Sitting in the makeshift solution tank.
Garage-build electrolysis setup to strip clean the water jacket and other hard to reach areas
Painting the cylinder heads
After a couple electrolysis cycles. Cleaned up quite nicely.
Painting the cylinder block to match.
