66 Indian creek loop
Found a HGP at local junk store. Looked solid and full of E10 gas. The owner looked at me funny when I did'nt balk at the $25 he asked. So I get it home and find the tag under the grime and it is a real 457. I've got 2 460s already so this one is a plus. Dumped the gas and poured in some Kero to flush and soak a while. I pumped it up to 10 lbs, yes the guage works, and actually got fuel thru whats appears to be a new gen. Still shiny  any way.  The fuel air knob is broke off as usual. So just soaking in atf and a little heat. Gonna try electrolosis for the rust, or maybe some lye, or both. Thanks for lookin 0620201410-01.jpg  0620201410-00.jpg  0620201410-00.jpg 0620201411-00.jpg

Try electrolysis with lye for the electrolyte. Works wonders! It'll degrease and strip paint while removing the rust.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I use around 1/4-1/2 cup per gallon, but don't really measure. Too much doesn't hurt--but it might overtax you power supply--and too little just takes longer. I like to add enough to just get the bubbles going.

It'll also clean the old RUG gunk out of the fount.

Lye dissolves organic compounds. You're made of organic compounds. Don't get it on you! If you do, beer is an excellent mild acid to neutralize the lye. I always keep an open container handy when working with lye. Safety first!

Thanks Timm, I been using an old 6amp bat charger with baking soda for electrolite. It's kinda slow  so a little lye ought to speed things up. I've used lye to clean up cast iron skillets and stuff but just let them soak for a while. and then rinse with vinegar . Lye and electricity,,,what could go wrong.lol

There is just something special about a gas plant. I have a bunch of them and I love the way they work. You'll have to contact Warren or Dean for a replacement valve stem for it. Dean does a great job making them.
