What rust preventative do U use...

...on your machined engine blocks, heads, cranks, etc. ?

I have some freshly machined parts that need to be prepped for storage (a couple of months) and was wondering what everyone else has been using......... WD40 doesn't seem to last as long as I'd like and smearing grease on all machined surfaces seems more messy (but doable) than it needs to be. They'll be bagged and stored indoors, but not in a air-conditioned area; so with all the melting snow & rain, moisture will be an issue.

I'd think there must be a heavy spray stuff or brush-on that works well and cleans off with hot soap & water. Anyone with any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance!

I've used motor cycle chain lube (Spray Can Stuff) for storage in the past.

The LPS #3 is good stuff. Costs about $7 per can, but it's well worth it considering the corrosion alternative. Be sure to spray inside the lifter bores and oil galleries, etc. I usually put a garbage bag over the blocks after the stuff dries (never fully dries)...or wrap them in cellophane/cling wrap.

Here's a cylinder block that I had thermocleaned. It looked brand new after the process, but if not protected, the corrosion begins. So I sprayed it with LPS #3:

C9VE Block:




This block sat for about a 1 year after the cleaning...and after being coated with LPS #3. Had I not sprayed it with the preservative, it'd certainly have started rusting again.

I hate all of you.

Just kidding.
Since destroying my lifter gallies I have found Gibbs rust preventative really works great.

I can tell you condensation kills.

I use Rustlick as well. You can get it at MSC. WD-40 and other penetrants are not good for preservatives. Some have acids that are intended to penetrate corroded bolts and nuts to break down the corrosion.

Rust Lick is good stuff and we use it too but I think the most important factor is environment. Spray the part with whatever you're using and then get it sealed up in a plastic bag and then placed in an area where ther tempeture does not change radically. This is a big problem here in Missouri esspecially this time of the year, the temp changes from day to day and metal tends to "sweat".

Let's see Dave ... I certainly know where you're coming from ... lol.
Yesterday afternoon it was 71* here in Michigan and 88% humidity; now it's 33* and 40% humidity. That change from day to day is pretty normal once in a while around here for this time of year.
