Review of Payoneer: NEVER USE PAYONEER!

Contractors and freelancers have to have some way to get paid. Thus, they use services such as Cash App, Payline, Stripe, and so on. They do...

First Cylinder Wipe


I'm using WD-40 and a soft rag right now. I only wiped once just to see what I could remove with a gentle wipe. The cylinder walls have rust on them, and that's the biggest problem here. So we'll see what the WD-40 and soft rag do. Then I'll move to something like naval jelly. I really don't want to use steel wool or anything like that on the walls, so I'm only trying gentle stuff for now. If worse comes to worst, then I might have to hone them. I don't really want to do that either because honing will change everything, and then I'll have to dig deeper and start fooling with the pistons and rings. I usually don't go that deep. I just deal with the top of the motor. However, I suppose I'll do it if I don't have a choice.

Meanwhile, we must pray that my crankshaft and bearings and such are okay. I really don't know. All I know is that everything was turning before I broke it down. It cranked but wouldn't start all the way up. I imagine the water in the cylinders gave it a tad bit of firing difficulty, lol.  As I said, there were no weird noises or clunking or thumping or anything. 

Like I said, I'm going to try my best to salvage it, but it's going to be a long journey. I haven't measured for warpage yet. I intend to do that after I get the other head off and clean up everything.
