Re: Rotten Engine Top Casting



Has been discussion about this in the past. General consensus then was
casting acts like a heat sink. Best solution was to keep the recesses
clean. Is no problem to spray water UNDER intake manifold every time
you clean engine (access on either side of water pump). Whenever
intake off car should DEFINITELY clean them out. I used a turkey
baster to suck up heavier particles.
