I want to get all the spares cleaned, de-rusted and put away before I start the ute rebuild, so I know what I have, including my existing stock of spares.
Enough said, now some pictures of a productive few hours.
Two good headlight buckets, a third needing repair. reflectors have been sprayed in silver paint, so will need to strip off and see what condition they are in.
Four heads to strip
Lots and lots of rust flakes
Valves and rocker arms stripped off
How much rust flakes?.......... Over 3 inches in this jar
The end result after a few hours work.......
- 3 salvageable heads
- 3 good water outlets
- 2 good exhaust manifolds
- 1 inlet manifold for 28 Chev
- 2 inlet manifolds for 27 Chevs
Over the next week or so these parts will be degreased, pressure washed, and then given a long, long bath in the molasses tank.
