Quote from: TJ Hopland on November 24, 2010, 09:36:42 AMAre you hoping to be able to just put this engine in a car and run it at some point? Or do you just want to keep it from getting rusty so that perhaps it will just need a teardown, cleanup, and new gaskets to put back into service?
Quote from: The Tassie Devil(le) (Bruce Reynolds) on November 24, 2010, 05:24:26 PMIf you are going to store it for a long time, then I would be advising you to remove the Spark Plugs and squirt some oil into the cylinders, and replace the plugs.Then remove the Rocker Covers and loosen the Rocker shafts to remove all pressure from the open Valves, so that all Valves are fully seated on their seats, and the Springs are at their widest position. This will save the springs of the open valves from just sitting fully or partially compressed.Bruce.
