[DML] Re: Major preventative maintenance GOING GREAT!

A couple of things to add:
It is not necessary to paint the top of the block. Run a tap in all
the holes to make sure the threads are clean and use new bolts with
plating on them. Use plenty of Never-Seize on the threads and Silicone
sealer on the "O" rings. The switch spinning is not a problem, test it
and replace the vacuum hoses. Replace the heater hoses and the valve
if it shows signs of leaking or does not move freely. Use new seals on
the fuel injectors and have then cleaned and tested. Replace the spark
plugs, cap, rotor, and ignition wires. You should replace the water
pump and hoses too. Also the idler bearings and belts. If you do all
this work you shouldn't have to go back into this area again for
another 25 years. Pressure test BEFORE putting the intake manifold
back on.
