Block Update

We are now beginning the process of re-cleaning the block parts including the block, crankshaft, pistons, and miscellaneous minor parts. 

The block is currently sitting in the parts cleaner tank to avoid it rusting. The crankshaft was also sent through the part cleaner and then lightly polished. It's currently oiled up and in a bag to avoid rust buildup. We measured to correctly purchase the intermediate shaft, crankshaft, and connecting rod bearings.

The final project completed was a base rust inhibiting base coat of paint on the oil pan and valve cover. Looking to paint each in the week or so the final grey and blue I chose.
