Some of you may remember my restoration page from a few months ago. I got tired of messing with the 460 and im thinking of going back to the original 390. I drained the oil (and water) and got the engine unlocked with minimal effort (a half-foot pipe wrench and a 1-1/2 foot PVC pipe). The engine turns freely now with a wrench and i have it soaking in diesel fuel. I was wondering if there is anything else i need to do to it or would it be safe to try and start it after a few days of soaking in the fuel? Let me know if it absolutly needs to be stripped and rebuilt.
