Engine Storage

This may be a crazy question, but I have to ask. Today I was helping a guy put a engine in his garage for storage. He said he never uses tape to tape off the exhaust ports or intake port because when you remove the duct tape, the glue from the tape causes the gaskets to not seal properly. Has anyone ever heard that before. And if so, what's the best way to seal off these openings? I've seen several guys use tape and never had any problems.

Has he never heard of laquer thinner??? I always tape of the openings if its going to be a prolonged storage...keeps the critters out. Now they do sell the cute little plastic covers that bolt over the ports. If a guy wants to spend money then they're available.

Just did a buddies 402 block last year. We put it on an engine stand, sprayed white lithium grease all over it and bagged it on the stand. Doing it that way, it's easy to move without worrying about poking holes in the plastic bag.
