A good mate of mine has begun dismantling his customised P5B sedan apart to effect further modifications. In the meantime I've let him stash the V8 we just pulled out of it in a corner of my garage. He might well be putting a completely different engine back in his car, or he might end up reinstalling this one. Either way, I wonder what I ought to do to ensure the original V8 doesn't corrode into a solid and useless lump? We drained the oil sump, but there is probably some coolant still in the block, despite the lower rad hose having been removed. I didn't try and open the drain taps yet. There are a couple of rags stuffed into the carbs, and the spark plugs are all still in place. Is there anything else should I be doing to it, chaps, beyond throwing a tarp over the top and ignoring it?
