Engine painting #1




Cleaning parts before painting



Cleaned the parts using a liberal amount of  brake cleaning and a brush, and flushing everything clean with brake clean.


Oil Pickup tube



In the past someone has really over tightened the seal between the the pickup tube and oil pump. Had some problems locating a better used one. So I decided I would give it a try to reshape the one I had. A friend helped me turn a mallet.



abit of elbow grease an 30 minutes later it was back to shape, atleast where the seal is suppose to be.


Block cast triming


Had the block completely sealed of so that I could remove some of the casting molds imperfections.
