|327NUT||The Cad was already .030 with only 30k on the orig rebuild, no ridge or taper so we just kissed the cyls. for a set of cast rings. It's going into this ....Eventually. All new parts except pistons, built it for today's crap gas so it's 8.7:1 comp. but it still dyno'd 466 hp and 535 torque at 4300 rpm. It's going to have this for a home.|

just a side not after cleaning the block as clean as possible I use a heat gun and a hand held propane torch to remove ALL signs of grease ,oil or FINGERPRINTS before painting POR 15 is a great choice there is not a chemical that I have found that will remove it, one of my recent builds

makes sure you have the block thoroughly cleaned of all dirt grease and grime. its good to either pressure wash it down with a strong engine degreaser first. I like to use carb cleaner after I do that with a stiff brush, then I wipe it down several times with a good prep solvent and let it air dry.
Personally I just use the dupli -color straight out the can, light coats until I get a smooth consistent color coat. Whether you like to use clear on top of the color I believe is personal choice. I never use the clear unless its a trailer queen.

Engine parts get pretty warm on a bike, so need to use the proper paint or it will flake off.

What do you guys recommend for painting air cooled aluminum motorcycle engines that will last?
I like the wrinkle paint on engine cases but want something that lasts more than a season without having to be stripped and redone,The powder coating guy I use for stuff here locally says he can powder coat the cases to look that way but Im not sure how well it will hold up
