IFDPete Posted October 12, 2022 Author Share Posted October 12, 2022 (edited) Cylinder Block Pulled for Cleaning & Repair I removed the hose from the water pump to the block, the distributor cap & wires, the push rod cover, and the manifolds so that the block could be removed. I also removed and labeled the valve push rods. Only one bent push rod to fix. Used an engine hoist, leveler, and a lovely mystery helper to remove the cylinder block from the car - radiator is still on the car - crank case still mounted to the car - I just lifted the cylinder block up over the radiator and out the front of the car. I wanted to get this block off to the shop for cleaning and get this project moving. I will deal with cleaning and testing the radiator later, so I just left it in place for now. Block was lowered onto an elevated pallet so that I could inspect it and remove the freeze plugs before I send it out to be thermal cleaned.
