I've done a bit more......

So the replacement engine was absolutely filthy inside, here's a shot of one of the cam caps to give an idea.

And some other engine shots........

Nasty and clearly badly treated in the past.

Last time I cleaned an engine internally, I used Nitromorse to great effect, ,unfortunately due to Eurocracy, it's no longer the same formula and completely ineffective for this task.

So I started testing all kinds of different things to shift the cack.

I tried white spirit, turps, mineral spirits, drain un-blocker, diesel, kerosene and acetone, none of them did the trick.

Cellulose thinners did an ok job of removing the chunky bits, but not the dark oils stains.

Then I tried Mr Muscle oven cleaner, which did a good job, until I finally settled on Oven Pride, which ate the crap at a rapid rate. Unfortunately it also reacts with Aluminium rather aggressively and quickly, so it requires a careful and rapid workflow of application, cleaning, drying and oiling. I eventually cracked it though.

Some shots of the external block area being soaked in diesel.

And inside with Mr Muscle.

The exterior still needs shot blasting, I plan on doing it with soda as a medium, so we'll see how that turns out.

Some shots of the internal parts all done now.

I went over the cylinder head one last time before it goes off to have the valve guides replaced.

A bit of cheeky trial fitting some parts......

For future reference Starchem SynStryp Paint Stripper. Holy drokk is it lethal. Mask and gloves or else it will strip skin. Tricky Clubbing Eddy.

Oooo shiny! :D

Great effort Paul. Looking forward to this :)

I was going to suggest Wickes own paint stripper for future needs. It's worked wonders for me without being too aggressive for aluminium.

Looking good this might be useful for you https://www.kstuned.com/blogs/knowledge ... -h-f-block
If it looks like jobby and smells like jobby it probably is jobby!
