Clint,

How did you prep the surfaces and what kind of paint did you use? I'm getting ready to rebuild my engine and I was wondering how you cleaned yours.

it was first sand blasted then tore completly apart to get all of the sand out and repaired. then put back together, all but the small parts. I took a wire brush on a drill to any spots that had any dirt or surffest rust. For the oil spots i used paint thinner or starter fluid and a rag to clean off, then paint it. I used Case IH paint. Over all it cost less to use it. Thought it would cost more.
A gallon cost me $60 or $65.
Have A Nice Day!

I like the CaseIH paint a lot. I did find the yeller to be quite a bit more money than red or white when I recently bought paint. Must be something precious in the pigment??
