Well, I got the stuck pistons out, at first it looked like this would be a quick rebuild, you know rings and gaskets, but on further inspection:
1) It looks like the crank will need a polishing or grinding, slight scoring visable, and can be felt with the fingernail. If I can gete away with a polishing does anybody sell bearings a little under standard size?
2) If the pistons or bores won't clean up and I have to overbore where can I get the high compression pistons I seen discussed here?
3) I plan to dunk the entire short block in my hot tank and then remove the cam and crank, or should I pull the cam and crank before hot tanking?
4) And the last question, after the hot tank I thought about building a little bigger version of the 5 gal. experiment I've got going now and using electrolysis to clean the serious rust problem I have in the block water jackets? Anybody done that, pro's/con's ??
PS, I'll take some more pictures of the whole mess tonight and post tomorrow.
