  • polishing engine components

    i would like to polish my engine components
    - front timing plate
    - inlet manifold
    - etc

    i'm new to this game, is there a complete kit available for such a task?
    what do you recommend to be used, taking into consideration they are cast items?

    Thanks

    At the bare minimum, you will need the following:

    -240 grit greaseless compound with a spiral sewn wheel.
    -Emery compound with sisal wheel.
    -Tripoli compound with spiral sewn or loose cotton wheel.
    -For added luster you can use white compound on either a spiral sewn or loose cotton wheel.

    For the intake manifold, you will need an assortment of felt bobs. Sanding tapers will make your job much easier on the intake manifold. I do not believe Caswell stocks them, but perhaps they could special order.
