It has been very humid in new England lately. It didn't occur to me to oil these heads. I had them wrapped in plastic shopping bags. Now I could kick myself. This is the worst one. Very light coat of rust that comes off on my finger after a coat of sewing machine oil. Sprayed a bit of Blaster in the ports; hopefully it will work its way under the valve seats and guides and protect them. Also the cylinders were not rusty, but i dripped some oil around in them too. I'm going to leave them like this and wipe them out at assembly.

The only part I think is missing now is my spare trans door. Pretty sure the indie has it. Not going to quibble. It very well may be in my shed but I've looked and looked. Plan on looking some more.
