    Just recently started using the Ampro block cleaning system, so far....I LOVE it. This old dodge flathead 6 looked like it came from the bottom of the ocean!

          No, it will melt the babbit, but I do leave the shells in so the blaster doesn't effect the cam bores

                It has paddle wheels in the bottom that fling the stainless shot media at the block, as apposed to using compressed air, like a sandblast cabinet

                The only drawback to that cleaning system is the shot. That stuff gets everywhere. I used to tap every frigging hole with a bottom tap and then blow the holes out with an extended tip.

                What those little shot beads do in an engine is devastating. And quick.

                Absolutely correct! It takes a extremely thorough cleaning once it's out of the cabinet for damn sure!

                    You really think 43 to 55 year old cam bearings in a 440 are going to be good anyway.

                    Might have got away without changing cam bearings when rebuilding an engine in 1985 but this is 2021 and a lot of age later....
