Default Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

I have disassembled several engines that were being run regularly, and a few that have sat up for years, including a flathead Dodge I rescued from an overgrown fence row.
Never saw any meaningful amount of rust inside either crankcase or valve chamber.
For that reason I would not bother with the red paint inside a new engine....
