Make shift hot tank! :)

Keep the fire going in the simmer range!

Crystal cleaner is pretty safe. Non toxic if I remember right!

That’s not a bad idea!

Yesterday it was sunny and hit 40ish degrees, so I wheeled the block outside and power washed it with hot water. I removed all the plugs and flushed all the oil galleries with hot water, then dried the block off with air, and blew out all the galleries, then flushed with wd40.
I think it turned out great!
