    Ive been stripping down my 1956 Aussie import and came across these embedded in the block?
    Purely out of interest has anyone come across this before?
    ...and whilst Im here.....the engine (2litre) 20200409_173002.jpg 20200409_173258.jpg water jacket is half full of rubbish...sand and v hard deposits and is going to be sent to Coxs for machining.....

    ...is there any chemical that will dissolve the deposit and the brass water tubes...is it easy to remove and replace these?

    Thank you
