My block was really ratty. However, since I did the teardown in my
basement, it wasn't feasible to move it to a sandblaster. So I used
wire brushes chucked in a drill to remove the big scale, then a series
of dremel brushs to do the small areas. I painted it with high temp
engine paint and six years later it is holding up pretty well.
