Russ,

Is your engine disassembled or not? I am a little confused with your question? If still assembled and you want to take the rust off the exposed parts of the block and intake manifold use a drill and wire brush to do it. Then go buy a good quality high temp engine paint from your local NAPA parts store. I just did my 67' and it really came out nice and so far seems to be holding up under operating heat the engine generates. NAPA stocks the exact paint for the different year Fords which used several colors and shades of blue.

Hope this helps.

Jeff

Very nice bay Jeff.  It takes some very meticulous effort to get those small parts painted exactly right, and you did a beautiful job.

That engine needs to be taken to a machine shop to remove built up rust from those areas.

It took countless hours, There were many times I had to just walk away and come back another day to complete something I was working. My insurance went into effect today and I am driving her this summer.

Here is a picture of the old girl's heart before the engine bay restoration...
