    Was wondering if you guys have any tips on keeping the block from rusting while doing a rebuild. I live in Kansas and temps fluctuate quite a bit and it will be in my garage. I've herd wd-40 or ATF just wanted your guys thoughts.

    spray everything down with wd40, wipe it in and coat again. Then cover the engine with a large garbage bag. You may want to re-coat with wd40 every couple weeks depending on the environment of your storage area.

    LPS3 if it’s for storage. During the process, I oiled up the block routinely. If your going to use WD 40, look into their gel formulas. It will stick longer

    Gibbs oil. Blows away WD-40. you can also paint over it and don't have to worry about it when you paint the block later. Fluid film is Lanolin and is great but leaves a lot of residue. I use it on a lot of undercarriage stuff....
