I have been checking Fred's and Ace for Gloss Black. Both are on sale for $3 a can but have been out of stock. Ace said a delivery is expected tomorrow. I placed the order on Sears for the gasket kit. Plan to ride Old Girl to the Rattle Snake Round-Up Saturday.

Still no black gloss paint, maybe tomorrow. I was able to power wash the engine, and drain the oil from both the engine and transaxle. No milk seen, and the sample looked good. Fresh oil will be used. The Gasket kit came in, right after I found one I had ordered in 2010, Oh well, there were some seals I didn't have in the new kit. The starter looks like it was replaced recently.

Now that I have two gasket kits I decided to let my grandson pull the heads. Not a lot of carbon build up, and the cylinders look good. Still on the fence as to weather to crack the block or not. I was able to loosen the Exhaust and intake manifold bolts, so No broken bolts to tap so far.

I showed him how to use the rubber mallet to break the bolts free, and once the bolts are removed, how to tap the heads off. Went over the operation of the piston and valves again. He liked the description of exploding air and gas to push the piston down.

I finally got the paint, Also Hi-Temp and Plastic Black, and a can of silver. I have a decision to make on the engine. I have two gasket sets, One will allow a complete block teardown and I can have the cylinder bores checked and honed, and order new rings. Or the second gasket set just allows de-carboning as it doesn't contain seals. I looked carefully at the seals and none show signs of leaking and de-carboning looks good. I have some time to think about which way I want to go with this.

I decided to just go with de-carboning. Took some time to prep the block for paint. A lot of dremel sanding, scotch brite pads and washing. I made special covers for all the openings to keep stuff out while cleaning and painting.

nice work like usual!

Glad to see your teaching that young one. May want to have him wear some shoes, just dropping something small can break a toe.

A shoe/boot may cushion that some.

No one ever died from a smashed toe.  I am just happy when Heath has on clothes.

Not to worry, he is careful (I am too) but I have bled on a few of the projects, just makes them belong more to me.. Tear down is done, and now for the long road to putting him back together.

Not a lot to report on, Days are still short. Used some Black Plastic paint, and Hi-Temp Black. These are the only plastic parts on BOH minus the muffler. Still cleaning and sanding other parts. I need to re-arrange my shelf space in the shop to store / hang completed parts.
