Best sand and slag remover tool is a needle scaler, not very expensive at Harbor freight

I can see how that would be very difficult to access without complete dismantling.
Good luck with the piston rings, how are you going to load up this engine to get the rings to bed in well?

I`m with 38ac, never believe an engine is free of casting sand unless you have checked yourself. The worst damage is caused by casting sand in the inside of cast iron pistons as it falls into the oil hole in the big end causing damage to the crank and bearing.
Clean it within an inch of it`s life before reassembly.

Well done Keith71, brute force and ignorance sometimes works, I should know, they don`t come anymore brutish or ignorant than me!
Did you get both flywheels off?
Will you be posting pics of the engine restoration?

Bob


Yes both flywheels and crankshaft end housings are off.
Sure, I will include a few different pictures and angles of a coffee mug filled with casting sand 8)

Re; sand
Although I have lost count of the total there has been in the area of 30 Listeroids. processed through my little operation of every "brand" that I have ever seen mentioned.  I have experienced exactly one that was clean of sand and slag, which was a Satyajeet 20/2 it was 10 steps ahead of any other Listeroid in every way.  Thus every time I read of clean one as received I am like, uhh OK ::)

This is the best shot I can get of the wire mesh in the sump that sits above the dual oil pumps. Started gaping the rings today.
