Block gets rotated , cleaned and inspected. Special care is taken and multiple techs inspect for flaws and wear. Noted during this stage we helped this customer decide to perform a enhanced Bullet Proof/Complete reseal. The condition of the cylinder walls and the inspection of the rod bearing indicate a healthy rotating assembly.

We chose a bright Navistar color for the engine. Black or dark colors will not allow identification for any oil leaks in the future. Plus after the deep cleaning surface rusting will be eliminated

Paint is on and cured. The block surface will still receive a razor blade cleaning.
