My head came back from the machine shop, so I'm ready to reconnect it and try
the car again. When I took the head off, I put a light coating of oil on the
block and pistons so they wouldn't rust while the head was out. I had scraped
the block with a chisel to remove the old gasket material, but there's a little
bit that was stubborn still there. There's also some carbon on top of the
pistons and a small ring of carbon (I think) at the top of the cylinders.
How should I clean everything before replacing the head?
Also, should I use anti-seize on the head studs? Anything else I should do
that isn't in the manual?
