Hey Everyone, this engine build is gonna be finally moving along here in a couple weeks.
If you haven't seen, I bought an 85' 4WD single cab that I'm going to be transplanting this engine into.
In the coming weeks I'm getting the flywheel machined ($40) and the entire rotating assembly balanced. Do you think it's worth it to balance it for a 22R? It's $200 for the balance. I may go somewhere else.
And then the head will get machined, I'm wanting to assemble a short block first without the head.
And now, for a question.
I got my crank machined about 6 months ago, it's been stored in my bedroom on a steel shelf (obviously not on the bearing surfaces)
There was some very fine and very light flash corrosion on one of the mains, not deep at all.
I tried using WD40 on it, but it wouldn't come off.
Should I get the crank polished again?
To prevent further corrosion, what is a good way to prevent this? I heavily coated the main and rod bearings surfaces with oil, and rapped a strip of paper towel around it to make it stick. I also coated the cylinder bores with a thin film of oil.
My house doesn't have a swamp cooler so the air conditioning is pretty dry.
And to leave you with a picture of my new truck
