I got my block, crank and heads back from the machine shop last week But need to put the project on hold for now. What methods do you guys use to store them so they wont rust!Can i just oil them up or is there a better way?
I like to use Cosmoline and trash bags. There are several different kinds of the Cosmoline, but any of the ones with wax should prevent rust. I believe Summit Racing has the heavy duty engine bags that are really tough.
I stored an engine block before just using a heavy duty garbage bag and spraying wd40 on it every once in a while, then just cleaned all the bores, caps, saddles with a rag covered in mineral spirits before the motor was assembled.
