How To Clean The Carbon From Top Of Pistons | Using Only Household Products
VISIT THE SITE TO SEE ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON THIS:
After pulling the GT40 heads from the 5.0 roller motor I discovered that
the tops of the pistons were coated in a thick layer of black carbon
buildup. The cylinder walls (bores) were in great shape with no gouges or
burrs. This left me with 2 options. Option 1 was to disassemble the entire
short block and replace the pistons and parts that were essential after
short block disassembly. Or Option 2 was to try and clean these up and
freshen up the cylinder walls. I chose option 2.
I started by spraying the piston tops with the bathroom cleaner and I let
it soak in for about 10 minutes. Next, I took an SOS or Brillo pad and
soaked it in rubbing alcohol. I started to scrub and scrub until the carbon
began to come off in places. This is a vigorous process that does require
some old fashioned elbow grease but in the end the results are well worth
it. Once all of the carbon was relatively gone off of the flat areas of the
piston I broke out the air grinder with a brass brush for the valve reliefs
The air tools are not essential if you want to take a little extra time
with a brass bristled hand brush. Whatever you do, only use brass! After
all of the carbon was clear I used the steel wool wet with alcohol and
wiped down the cylinder bores and made them shine like new again. I gave
the pistons a final rinse with alcohol and then vigorously oiled the
pistons and the cylinder walls to ensure no surface rust would appear. I
also sprayed them down with Ballistol (gun cleaner all natural)
Anyone can do this with a little time and patients. Just take your time and
you'll love the results!

PART4 chevy 350 rebuild/PAINT
I put the parts mostly together just to paint. I got Chevy orange/red. It's
a nice color and goes on well. I got 2 cans and did everything you see in
the video with just 1 can. Once all the gaskets and everything are on and
the block is together to say I'll burn another can on it just to be safe ;)
Happy watching and subscribe!

Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1
My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in
a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck
out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5
years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I
tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It
has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in
