    Back when I did motor swaps for an engine exchange shop, I swear I spent just as much time cleaning parts as I did on the R&R. Owner's motto was "If you're willing to lick it, then it's clean enough to stick it" I never made any money at that place. 16 hr motor job would turn into at least twice that. But if I was working on my own vehicle...................totally different story.

    All the engine work here is crates. All the other get a bath in the steamer. But my own stuff gets cleaned and painted.

    We did rebuilt long blocks, so just had to swap oil/water pump, intake, pullies, etc. But man, some of those intakes were a nightmare. I'm with you though, I wouldn't do my own motor without doing what I (and you obviously) belive is the right way!!
