It's been awhile since I have posted. I've learned a lot about these old tractors in the last ten years, but I have a question. I blew a head gasket and am in the process of getting ready to install a new Fel-Pro. My question is how clean should the block be? It's smooth right now, but there is a black carbon film on the block. Should I steel wool it on down to brite metal?
