Block and manifold cleaning



I took apart an M70, would like to use the block as a table. Anyone know of any place in the Oakville/Burlington/West Mississauga area that can clean it for a reasonable fee? Same with the intake manifolds.

Everyone I've tried says it's too long for their machines, or wants $200.

Thanks!

You want it media blasted? Or chemically cleaned?

Probably just hot-tanked. It's in good shape, just needs some oil and coolant buildup removed.

Did that. Planning to use in living room, so I want it spotless! It's hatd to clean out all the passages, especially with some calcified coolant.
