I tried somany different things to clean it,as I recall gas worked about the best, acetone worked good but evapration so fast it did not seem feaseabe. I thought for sure wd40 would do it....not much at all if any thing. that engine case now has over 80000 miles, going strong at around 3x the oe horsepower. and much more fun.
    With 3x original horsepower, even a Neon might be fun. Borderline at best.

    And the guy under the rolling stand! Peeling in and out of there looks No-Fun to me. There also doesn't appear to be any overhead system to move them to those fine jack stands either...a 6-8 man lift mechanism? The floor is way to clean for me also and not a tool box in sight. Likely a staged shot.

    Amazingly crisp pic though, in what looks to be a real Sepia. Nice find Jon!

    Texas + cannons + flagpole? I wonder if somewhere on that flagpole might be the legendary Gonzales flag.
