Blasted and powder coated frame. Great shape.
More assembly and "staging"
Thanks everyone! Yeah....I've finally been putting a dent into it like promised a LONG time ago. Haha
Going together good.....
You may have said this in an earlier post, but what color are you going to paint it? And when you do paint it, by which method? Rattle can or sprayer? High temp paint? Or regular car paint and clear coat?
Sorry a lot of questions. Just curious, because I was thinking about how I was going to paint my motor when I get to that point.
I'm also curious as I will be doing this over the summer/ fall too.
I'm probably going to go with a rattle can that's high temp enamel....prefer to stay that sweet red. I've started to look. I think I might have a tough time finding the right color though......Accessory mounts, pulleys, etc will get a shot of black.
Valley pan and water pump housing will get a shot first....then I'll put the intake on.
Ford 206....with a gray primer.
Coming together very nice. Some assembly required for sure! I just used Duplicolor Engine Enamel with Ceramic for my Valve cover Ford Red DE1605. Not quite a match to IH red although I do like the color. My existing red was more red red and the Ford Red has some more orange in it.
That looks pretty good! I've been tempted to try to match the orange that will be on the scout with black valve covers and an orange International script. Something about that doesn't feel right though.
That would kind of match the new international symbol eh.
Very true. I would kinda dig doing it orange and black like the scout will end up being...pair it up with a black air cleaner cover and some high temp black painted Stan's headers.
Some more cleanup and a intake modification (KISS method....I'm not messing with that divorced stuff). Going to get a shot of paint in the next day or two:
What kind of method do you use for parts cleaning, your metal looks so clean!
Just a note on lubrication, the bottom end looked pretty dry in your pictures? Sometimes I see more liberal amounts of assembly lube or engine oil used in those areas. I'm going to assemble my own engine, hopefully very, soon so just very curios to learn
Parts cleaning was a process. Haha. First, I have access to a decent parts washer/brush with your typical cleaner.
Then, I give alot of stuff a first pass with a Cuda washer. This just uses a detergent and I use compressed air to dry parts.
I use this for anything small and aluminum.
The block and other cast items got a bath in a hot tank with a caustic solution. This is something you have to be very careful with.....its at 200 degrees and has a very high PH (13!).
A lot of the additional finish to stuff like the valve covers and valley pan (gray looking finish) are finished off with a glass bead blast. Its not as aggressive as sand or other methods and leaves a good painting surface.
