now that the block has been fully seasoned...
time to get after it
the first step is clean up the block... interestingly this is a 5/8" bore block (oil passage which makes it a 74 and later block)
and the edges
so the back story is I need to get these parts in one place (and I may throw the car together enough to drive).... but most importantly, we may be moving soon and the safest way to transport it is together
