Just knock the rust off with steel wool; blow off the 'dust.' A light film
of motor oil will stop it. ...bill in Oregon

Subject: [Spridgets] Wanted:- Advice on re-doing a cylinder head...
After the usual assortment of "Aw Shit's" and "Damn's" plus a few
other choice words, I have determined that #2 inlet guide is worn
enough to admit oil into the combustion chamber...
I have been working (slowly!) on re-doing a spare head.
It's been cleaned, valves, springs, guides are all fitted - just
needs the rocker assembly from the head that's still on the motor...
Here's the question: after all this time, even though it's been in
the house all this time, the surface of the replacement head has
taken on a very thin 'sheen' of rust.
Would it be OK to just give the milled surfaces a quick wipe-over
with 000 wire wool?? And could I then just paint the outside (rough)
surfaces with Krylon spray paint??
Thanks in advance... ;-))
