  • Engine Block question

    I had an engine built last year for my truck, and they painted it a Ford Blue color using spray paint cans. It has been sitting unstarted since then and has started to flash rust, can I still powdercoat the engine block if I mask off all holes and openings? You would think an engine filled with oil could handle up to 450deg. but just wondering what you guys think. Thanks.

    I dunno man... I consider gaskets, any silicone. as for the oil.. i think there would be burn-off (contamination of powder), plus i'd have to think out-gassing would be impossable with a pan full of oil. the paint would have to go too.
    Personally? i wouldn't do it unless it was a bare block. just my 2 cents
    If it jams; Force it. And if it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

    I can go from 0 to "What seems to be the problem Officer?" in 3 seconds."

      It needs to be disassembled and vatted to degrease.

        Yeah I kinda figured that I would have to get it taken apart again, but I thought I would try the easy way out. This way though I can go with something wild, that won't rust a year later.
