KEEPING THE FLUIDS OUT
If you’re honing a block without a torque plate for any reason, use clear packing tape and cover all the water holes in the deck. This will reduce the drain time and you’ll see much less “walk off” of your honing oil as well. Saves money and reduces oil in your spray wash machine. Many times the water jackets will have scale or residue that will contaminate your oil too. This prevents that from being a problem.
