How long has it sit with out running. I had a block sit for a few weeks in the garage and was locked up with rust not i was able to get it apart and cleaned up with no damage but it doesnt take much to stop a sharp set lf rings cold.

A few hot cold cycles (day/night) will make the cast iron pull in water from the air and rust up almost over night. I always spray em down with oil and duct tape all the ports vent and dipstick closed to avoid rust. If its going to set outside for over a year fill it up with oil in the cylinders and crankcase. Old oil is fine. Then seal it up as much as you can.
