What paint would be good for covering the lifter valley for aiding oil drain-back? What high-temp paint would be good for painting the block? Is there something available in spray cans?
Vizard's book shows how to detail the oil return holes. Should I go ahead and do that and try to re-clean the block, or should I just leave it go now?Paul Wright said:That Glyptal idea was first published in "How to Hotrod Small Block Chevy's" back
in the seventies. It's hung around ever since. You don't need to go to all that trouble. Just deburr the valley with a "tootsie roll". It will work just as good without the risk of any paint coming off. Pay attention to the drain back holes.
This is something that really should have been done before machining and cleaning the block.
