Engine Rebuild - Stripping Parts

Spent some time last weekend stripping engine parts, including the block (now that I know it's good). Also started chasing out threaded holes in the block that were full of paint and rust.

Still putting together a shopping list of parts to rebuild the engine, and changing my mind every 12 hours about what to do with the cam and head.

Sprayed with aircraft remover, which will remove just about anything from just about anything

Bin of parts before stripping

Bin of parts that have been pretty well cleaned up.  Still more to do before paint.
