    Hi All,
    Unfortunately, real life got in the way again. I have been using my parts washer to clean up some of the smaller items and the tinware. Tinware has come up quite good, with only a couple of parts needing to be grit blasted and then repainted. Will lay it out and see which bits I need replace. I found this photo online which will help to compare against.

    Don't know if you would be interested in this but here is what I did to my parts washer

    https://sterlingkitcars.com/index.ph...nk-filter.375/

    I never trusted the screen filter to get rid of all the contaminates in the solvent, and was concerned that they would go right back into the engine parts that I was cleaning(and I was right)
    Cleaning tins I wouldn't be concerned of stuff getting through but when your dealing with internal engine parts thats different.

    Since this post I've gone to a larger filter because of how quickly the smaller filter plugged up.
