Projects 26 Tcoupe 60s High school hot rod

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Greezeball, Aug 20, 2017.

  1. Next step is to get the small block on the stand and cleaned up. Then see if I have to drill and tap for the front mount adapter.
    It's a '59 283 some are drilled some aren't.

    Grease or should I say Greeze...:p...is better than dry in so many cases as it preserves whats underneath as in no pitting...​

  12. Oh I agree but man what a PITA! The gunk is/was over an inch thick in places . I pulled this engine out of a 59 Impala and I don’t think it had been clean once in it’s entire life. It still ran smooth though.
    I tried multiple cleaners to remove the grease, Gunk degreaser, Easy Off oven cleaner and what finally worked and what I should have used in the first place is Dawn dish soap and hot water.
