Well decided against evaporust since it would just change the chemical make up of the rust and I wanted to remove it. I decided to try molasses I read about it for rust removal and I thought it's not very aggressive so no harm done if it doesn't work. I left it in for about a week and surprisingly it works very well but to be really affective I needed to hit it with a wire brush which is impossible inside the parts. So I decided to step it up to muratic acid which I was very weary about at first but it actually worked great. I just got a 5 gal bucket filled it 2/3 full and put 3/4 gal of muratic acid(what I had left in a jug) and let the pieces soak about 6 hours seemed to be perfect the washed it well and dipped it in a baking soda and soap bath and came out nice. I'm just waiting on them to dry to paint them and back on they go.

Does anybody know part number for gasket between tstat housing and intake manifold? I'd like to get it at autozone or similar place if possible.

Looking good! Can't wait to hear if you can feel the difference when you get her into the water.
