Thanks, Franz. I'll double check for tranny strap.

Been a while... turns out the pressure plate collar broke. Transmission is out and still at the rebuilder's. Going to rebuild carbs and tidy up the engine and engine bay over the winter while everything is out.
I'm thinking of painting the engine bay. Im going to sand everything I can reach, but what can I do to give the old paint some bite in all the nooks and crannies that are impossible to sand? Something that will corrode the paint some. I was thinking TSP? Someone also suggested CLR? Something that won't poison me.

Also, can I spray straight over the old paint (and bare metal spots)?

CLR is good for rust. Laquer is good for grease. Red scotchbrite is good for paint. You're going to have to sand every square inch you plan to paint with scotchbrite.

I guess there are no shortcuts. Better get sanding.
Thanks, Franz.
