Best way to clean rust off of crank, rods and block?
I did a search and came up with one pretty good result but it was from awhile back and I just wanted to check before I pay to have the thing hot tanked...
Can I just soak all the rods, crank and block in lye then in vinegar and water to remove the rust?
It's just surface rust but it's 2 years worth, ALL parts have been inside but they've been sitting inside the garage on the floor...I'm a dummy.
Any easier ways or should I just have it hot tanked or what?
Thanks for any advice,
