Re: Storing Engine Block
Cosomoline...Uncle Sam used it for long term storage of rifles, etc. FWIW ...I bought a bunch of Kellogs KEL 57300 "Black Oil Spray" for long term storage of machined parts over 15 yrs ago (or more), parts are still like the day they were done. Gooey, slimy, sticks to anything, everything only way to remove it is wipe it off or gasoline or kerosene or fuel oil as a solvent. Their ad states "goes on like a 10W oil, dries to a 600W grease". Prices vary from $8.91 to 36.70 for a spray can, True Value may be your best price, either on line or if your localTrue Value dealer has a "deal". Research it, if it's what you want check everyones price. I still have about a case and a half left from my original purchase, good stuff for long term storage.
